And the McConnell bill also creates another industry giveaway, a $70 billion account to shore up insurers against the economic turbulence the rest of this bill will create.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has also shied away from referring to the GOP health care bill as Trumpcare. On this one, McConnell should have stuck to his original game plan. McCain is expected to miss at least a week of work as he recovers from his operation at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Arizona, and his absence will overlap with the expected CBO score of the new Trumpcare legislation which should come out on Monday. Tissue pathology reports would be available within the next several days. This addition could bring down costs for some, but has caused contention with some moderate senators because it could hurt those with pre-existing conditions.

"While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act", McConnell said in a statement he posted to Twitter.

Digging deeper into McConnell's bill, one finds apparent giveaways to try to wrest votes from Republicans who are on the fence for completely different reasons.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellMitch McConnellCBO won't have Monday score for Senate healthcare bill After delay, Senate Republicans struggle not to let healthcare stall Health Secretary Price: More people will be covered under GOP bill than are now covered MORE (R-Ky.) announced Saturday night that Senate consideration of legislation repealing and replacing ObamaCare will be delayed while Sen.

"On the advice of his doctors, Senator McCain will be recovering in Arizona next week". You do the math.

"After all these years of suffering under Obamacare, the republican senators must keep their promise!" wrote Donald Trump in a series of four tweets from Paris, where he attended the parade of the 14 July at the invitation of the French president Emmanuel Macron.

It is substantively accurate to say there is a carve-out in the Senate measure, but as with much of what happens when the Senate uses the budget reconciliation process, the reasons are complicated. Vice President Mike Pence would break a tie for final passage.

McCain is in Arizona after having a blood clot removed from above his left eye.

But it can, and I'm going to stop being facetious for a moment.

Lee has offered no hints as to what his future decision on the legislation will be, but one thing seems nearly certain: The fate of the Better Care Reconciliation Act rests in his hands. They actually gave credit, as I recall off the top of my head, for the fact that $15 billion had been spent for two successive years to lower premiums.

They also usually require weeks of blood-thinner treatments, which can be a bit painful.

He knew McCain was not solidly behind the bill.

At issue is the modification made to the amendment, which the Senate leadership added to the bill at the last minute after Cruz reportedly approached them with a compromise.

"Prior to the implementation of the ACA, "individual and family" private health insurance covered doctor/specialist visits, lab tests, preventive care, hospitalization, emergency care and most included prescription drug coverage".

That's all I asked of the senator in June: Let's take our time and do health care right.
