McConnell delays healthcare vote

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced Saturday night that the vote on Senate Republicans’ ObamaCare repeal and replace bill would be delayed until a later date.

The news comes after Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) released a statement that he would miss this week’s votes as he recovers from surgery.

McCain’s absence meant Senate Republicans almost certainly would not have had the 50 votes needed to win a procedural vote this week.
