Sen. John McCain Has Surgery to Remove Blood Clot Above Eye

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can not lose any others for the legislation to survive a showdown vote expected next week.

John McCain's absence from the Senate as he recovers from surgery for a blood clot has led the Republican leadership to postpone consideration of the Trump administration's troubled healthcare legislation.

McConnell tweeted that the Senate will work on other legislative issues and nominations next week and "will defer consideration of the Better Care Act" while McCain is recovering.

The Republican senator's absence from the Capitol is sure to change the calculation for the week's business, because it will complicate the already tight math for the effort to repeal and replace the 2010 health care law. He will be in Arizona next week as he recovers based on the advice of his doctors, the statement said. With the GOP holding a 52-48 majority, they can afford to lose only two Republicans. Vice-president Mike Pence would break a tie for final passage. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Sen.

A procedural vote expected in the coming days had been cast as a showdown over the measure created to replace President Barack Obama's health care law, commonly called Obamacare.

A further delay in the schedule is bad news for Senate Republicans, as it will allow opponents of the legislation more time to pressure wavering GOP centrists to vote against it.

Sen. John McCain underwent a surgical procedure on Friday to remove a blood clot from above his left eye, the Mayo Clinic said in a statement Saturday on behalf of the Arizona Republican. "Tissue pathology reports are pending within the next several days". Mr McCain was reported to be resting comfortably at his home in Arizona.

Surgeons removed the clot during a minimally invasive craniotomy through an incision in the 80-year-old lawmaker's eyebrow.
