“Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastomawas associated with the blood clot”, the hospital said in a statement.
It was the latest head-spinning turn for legislation that’s survived several near-death experiences in recent week.
Conservative lawmakers and outside groups are calling on senators – who spent the last seven years railing against Obamacare – to keep their word and vote the same way they did in 2015.
McCain took to twitter to make the announcement saying he looks forward to returning to the Senate.
And former SDSU student Colby Tunick, who saw the Facebook post while in Prague, said he was “a little disturbed” by Graubart’s biting remarks about McCain. So it’s pretty clear that had McCain stayed in Arizona for his medical treatment and missed the vote the GOP would have no chance of moving this terrible legislation forward. McCain and his family said they were evaluating treatment options. “That’s the one that’s death”. Republicans can hardly compromise with each other, let alone Democrats.
Graubart said he was most troubled by the fact that so many people would send “such well wishes to an utter stranger as it reinforces the notion that some lives are more important than others”. It was unclear whether McCain’s return would improve the chances of the bill clearing a key procedural hurdle, as he has expressed concerns about the proposal. But the Republicans seem to hate Obama so much that they can hold their nose and vote for just about anything these days.
Of course, Trump needs McCain’s vote if his promise to repeal Obamacare is to advance.
“Senator McConnell has been talking to [McCain]”.
“There’s a lot of unknowns, and I don’t think we should move to the bill with so many unknowns unless we’re going to be told what exactly we’re going to move to”.
“McCain was always a hawk when it came to foreign policy and openly called for military action against a number of countries: he advocated bombing Iran, proposed using U.S. troops to depose Syrian leader Bashar Assad and called to ramp up the anti-Russian measures”. You have one definite “NO” already; Susan Collings of ME, and other possible “NO” votes from Rand Paul (R-KY), Rob Portman (R-OH) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). Kasich’s stance could make it harder for wavering Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, who’s criticized the measure’s Medicaid cuts, to back the legislation.
Trump’s contentious tone toward members of his own party underscored the high stakes as he tries winning Republican votes for a goal the GOP has trumpeted since the statute’s 2010 enactment. “Thank you John”, POTUS, 70, wrote. He also told the crowd it “better get” West Virginia Republican Sen.
The Senate parliamentarian, Elizabeth MacDonough, who serves as a sort of referee, has made a preliminary finding that a number of provisions of McConnell’s repeal-and-replace bill appear to violate Senate rules.
Collins has opposed the GOP replacement plan.
