McCain surgery means another delay for Senate's healthcare bill

McCain surgery means another delay for Senate's healthcare bill

Senate Republicans’ healthcare overhaul bill has hit another stumbling block—this time, in the form of a blood clot above Sen. John McCain’s eye.

The Arizona Republican underwent surgery on Friday to remove the clot, his office announced this weekend, and will be recovering in his home state this week. And since Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has no votes to spare in his bid to pass his healthcare bill, McCain’s surgery means the GOP’s push to pass it must be put on hold.
