Shocking.  If we allow people to go without coverage, or just really cheap coverage, but don't deny change in coverage for pre-existing conditions, the system won't work?

There will never be a perfect solution.
Time to stop fighting against single-payer healthcare.
Accept it, along with preventative healthcare expenditures.

senate bill delayed because mccain had to get surgery

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/07/15/mccain-out-surgery-obamacare-repeal-240595

not happy that John mccain is having medical issues, but it does have the benefit that apparently they can't even start debate on their reconciliation bill for the time being.  mcconnell said they're deferring consideration of the bill.  mccain will be out for at least a week.

every delay moves it a little closer to never

he was objecting to the medicaid cuts before this happened.  didn't sound like a no, but sounded like he needed softening on that before he would vote yes.

McCain is always concerned but never actually does anything other than go along with the party line. Just look how cowardly he's been on Trump who attacked him directly and never apologized.

Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell likely lacks the support to pass legislation that would repeal and replace Obamacare, after McConnell delayed a vote because of Sen. John McCain's absence following surgery.

Tom Price admits that the new Trumpcare is only repeal, no replace

Quote
Price responded that he found that wall of opposition "really perplexing, especially from the insurance companies, cause all they have to do is dust off how they did business before Obamacare."

some speculation now that mccain may be out more than a week.  nyt interviews a neurosurgeon who says the recovery time is "usually a few weeks".

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/07/16/health/john-mccain-blood-clot-recovery.html?referer=https://politicalwire.com/

there's also speculation that it could point to a more serious health problem that the mccain camp isn't disclosing.

That would explain the loopy questioning at the intelligence hearings.

Yeah that was weird.  I saw an interview with him following that and he seemed coherent there.  He said something like "I guess did a poor job of making myself clear, but the point I was trying to address was..."

I don't remember the details, so I don't know if he was trying to set a trap like Cruz tried to do with Yates or what.

oh, so THAT's how mcconnell is making the medicaid cuts bigger and smaller at the same time

this realization will be great for his whip count, I'm sure

Yup, ultra left wing / liberal / fake news CNN is now speculating that "McCain's surgery more serious than thought".

support collapsing on the right.

two yes badgers are nos on beginning debate.  cruz ' s backdoor gutting of guaranteed issue doesn't kill enough poors for them.

they were already short of 50 with mccain's absence.  now they are well short of 50.

So they've settled on repeal now, replace later? I thought that didn't have the votes?

ETA: I guess they're just going to mess with the house bill, but the tone sure makes it sound like repealing is the only substantive commitment before midterms.
