McCain To Return To US?Senate On Tuesday After Cancer Diagnosis

John Mc Cain suffered years of hardship and abuse while a prisoner during the Vietnam War

With all Democrats opposed, President Donald Trump can afford just two defectors on the health care reform vote, making McCain's vote critical. McCain said in a tweet.

In a message on social media on Wednesday, McCain said: "I greatly appreciate the outpouring of support-unfortunately for my sparring partners in Congress, I'll be back soon, so stand-by!"

Yet fellow Republicans took McCain's return as a positive sign for Tuesday's vote. To advance to the next step, that will require 51 votes.

For his part, the president made a positive vote on a motion-to-proceed his main demand in a video that featured "victims of Obamacare" along with some presidential thunder-and-lightning aimed especially at Senate Republicans who promised to repeal and replace Obamacare but haven't succeeded so far.

In a statement published on the senator's website on July 19, the 80 year-old senator indicated that following a procedure to remove a blood clot from near his left eye, tissue tests have revealed a glioblastoma diagnosis.

He ran for president twice: in 2000 and then 2008, when he was the Republican nominee and ultimately lost to Barack Obama. "Repeal or Repeal & Replace!"

But neither said they walked away from the meeting with a clear understanding of which amendments to the bill would be brought up in which order, if debate can even begin.

Construction at both parks began in 2016 and the lands are expected to open in 2019. The other is a battle ride between the First Order and the Resistance.

"We can't wait until the 2018 election waiting around to accomplish the Trump agenda, to secure the border and stop illegal immigration and repeal Obamacare and fix the economy and fix the veterans administration", she said.

With solid opposition by the 48-member Democratic caucus, McConnell and Trump have been trying to find a middle ground acceptable to conservatives such as Paul seeking a complete repeal and moderates such as Collins who worry about sharp reductions in Medicaid.

McCain has not been overly enthusiastic about the GOP health bill or the partisan process through which it's emerged. A half dozen or more Senate Republicans are still undecided about whether to even start debate on a health care overhaul.

"I haven't received word from any of the feminists out there saying, 'Hey, what are you doing attacking a strong Republican woman?' I haven't received anything from any well-known Republican women either, which is kind of disappointing", she said.

"I certainly hope so, because I have a proven track record in years on the state Senate of being extremely effective and of listening to the voices of people that I represent", she said. She didn't say that in her written statement - at least, not exactly.

"I would never presume to say what someone's prognosis is without having examined them".

"Obamacare is the law of the land", House Speaker Paul Ryan declared after the House's health care flame out months ago.
