Health Care Bill on Hold

Audio clip:

No action after all this week on a Senate health care bill.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more on Capitol Hill:

A Senate Republican health care bill needs every vote it can get to survive and with Arizona Republican John McCain at home resting after a surgery to remove a blood clot over his eye, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell postponed any vote on the latest ObamaCare repeal and replace measure.

A revised bill already has two Republican opponents, one more and GOP leaders won't be able to secure enough votes to even debate the bill.

That's why McCain's absence has delayed a procedural vote that was expected later this week.
