John McCain, R-Ariz. listens on Capitol Hill in Washington, during the committee's confirmation hearing for Nay Secretary nominee Richard Spencer. Surgeons in Phoenix said they removed a blood clot from above the left eye of McCain. Mayo Clinic Hospital doctors said Saturday, July 15 that McCain underwent a "minimally invasive" procedure to remove the nearly 2-inch (5-centimeter) clot, and that the surgery went "very well." They said the 80-year-old Republican is resting comfortably at his home in Arizona. Pathology reports are expected in the next several days. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)

    How 2 Republicans Ended Up At Odds With Their Party On Health Care


    WASHINGTON ― Senate Republican leaders can’t seem to find the votes to repeal and replace Obamacare. They’ve had no help from Democrats, of course, who oppose what they’re doing and haven’t been consulted anyway. But they’ve also had no help from two senators in their own party: Susan Collins of Maine and Rand Paul of Kentucky ...

    Obamacare increased access to physicals like the one that found McCain’s blood clot
    The Senate wants to cut that exact kind of coverage


    ... But there’s an incredible irony to McCain’s surgery being the cause of the delay on the GOP’s health care vote. According to McCain’s office, the clot was found during a routine physical — a type of preventative care that was expanded under Obamacare and threatens to be limited under Trumpcare ...

    The second version of the Senate Republican health care bill is dead for now.

    GOP Sen. Heller receives threatening note over health care


    WASHINGTON — Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., received a note at his Las Vegas office over the weekend that reportedly threatened the senator if he voted to take away the note writer’s health care.

    The note writer said he would die from losing insurance if Heller backed the Republican plan — and that he would take Heller down with him if that happened, according to veteran reporter Jon Ralston at the Nevada Independent ...

    GOP senator: Health care vote now ‘in jeopardy’ due to McConnell’s ‘breach of trust


    WASHINGTON — A key Republican senator says the Republican health care bill is in “jeopardy” due to comments Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made to moderate senators behind closed doors.

    Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., told reporters Monday that he has confirmed with moderate GOP senators that McConnell, R-Ky., told them the bill’s biggest Medicaid cuts would never go into effect because they are so far in the future ...

    Congressmen seek revenge against the CBO for making Trumpcare look bad
    No one could have seen this coming


    The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has been a constant thorn in the side of congressional Republicans, repeatedly pointing out that Trumpcare would have a disastrous impact on the American health care system. The most recent version of Trumpcare, according to the CBO, would strip 22 million people of coverage by 2026 ...

    Even if Trumpcare fails, Obamacare’s foes have a plan B
    Remember when presidents didn’t sabotage people’s health care?

    ... Should the bill fail, however, the law’s opponents do have a backup plan that could potentially cancel millions of people’s health plans.
    Though this backup plan would not be nearly as harsh as the Trumpcare legislation — which has been projected to strip health coverage from an estimated 22 million people by 2026, and could therefore kill tens of thousand of Americans every year that it is in effect — the anti-Obamacare plan B could still visit havoc upon many health insurance markets ...
