CBO delays analysis of latest health care bill

But the White House's efforts were not well received. He said that Republicans are having problems reaching a consensus because they're representing "a lot of different states". "I think every governor is very concerned". Other elements, including deep cuts to the Medicaid program, carry over from the initial Senate draft. Rand Paul, has come out against the new version of the GOP health care bill.

McConnell delayed a vote on the bill in June before the Senate recessed for the Fourth of July holiday because it didn't have the necessary support.

Two major US health insurance groups on Friday called on Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell to drop from a healthcare bill a provision proposed by Senator Ted Cruz that allows insurers to offer stripped-down, low-priced healthcare plans. John McCain (R-Ariz.) recovers from surgery for a blood clot.

The Arizona Republican is among a handful of GOP lawmakers who are on the fence over how to overhaul ObamaCare. "Then, based on that premise, let's have a debate about how best to improve care and reduce costs", he says.

According to the New York Times, governors from both major parties have denounced the revised bill. "Now we are here today because all of that is at risk".
