His presence could provide an emotional lift to GOP lawmakers, who were urged by President Donald Trump on Monday to seize the moment and move on a repeal of Obamacare.

McCain's absence put the future of the GOP effort to pass a new health care bill in jeopardy because the party can not afford to lose votes. "He's a war hero because he was captured". "John McCain's coming back". "Thank you all for your best wishes".

He bemoaned the lack of legislative action in Congress, the GOP's secretive process in working on repealing and replacing Obamacare and a plea for Democrats and Republicans to work together.

In his remarks to open Tuesday's Senate session, McConnell appealed to wavering members of his party to vote for the procedural motion to begin debate and amendments to the legislation, even though he has not disclosed exactly which bill he will propose.

McCain's presence at any vote has been seen as crucial after McConnell failed to pass early versions of his health care plans when several Republican senators voiced their opposition to the bills.

A lot has been written and said about John McCain since Arizona's senior senator announced last week that he was being treated for an aggressive form of brain cancer.

Live Crew's Fresh Kid Ice Has Died At Age 53
"My Condolences goes out to the family [of] Chris Wong Won Fresh Kid Ice of the 2 Live Crew , who passed away this morning". In 2004, he released Freaky Chinese , which notably featured several appearances from a pre-fame Flo Rida .


He ran for president twice: in 2000 and then 2008, when he was the Republican nominee and ultimately lost to Barack Obama. That would set up a House-Senate conference to resolve the differences between the two proposals, buying Republicans more time to continue to try to find a broad bill that repeals and replaces the ACA. It's even stranger because what they're even voting on is unclear - here's a quick explainer that might help.

He said he was in touch over the weekend with Seema Verma, the Trump administration's head of Medicare and Medicaid, and that her proposal to make up some funding with non-Medicaid money has potential. But Graham said "woe is me" is not in McCain's DNA.

Beyond the motion to proceed vote and the ensuing debate, no one is quite sure - not even Republicans - what of substance the GOP will try to pass to overhaul health care, which affects one-sixth of the US economy. Ward pushed back against the characterization of what she was trying to say, insisting the radio hosts were putting words in her mouth. Trump called McCain a "crusty voice in Washington".

Ward, a physician and former state senator who is now running against Republican Sen.

"Obamacare is the law of the land", House Speaker Paul Ryan declared after the House's health care flame out months ago. It was not immediately clear when he would return to Washington. "Until the vote is actually on the floor of the Senate, some people may not tell you what they're actually going to do".
