Mitch McConnell defers consideration
of Senate healthcare bill until return of
John McCain after blood clot procedure

Washington Examiner, by Daniel Chaitin

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/15/2017 11:45:59 PM

The Senate will defer consideration of the GOP healthcare plan that would partially repeal and replace Obamacare until Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., returns to work following a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement late Saturday. After wishing him a "speedy recovery," McConnell, R-Ky., added: "While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act." About two hours earlier, McCain´s office revealed that he would be spending a week in his home state

Bladdermouth McConnell is afraid of the real conservatives and needs flannelmouth McPain to help him continue to obfuscate the issues.

I would have thought that flying was not allowed if you were diagnosed with a blood clot, especially that close to the brain.

If this was not an emergency, then McConnell should not have postponed this vote. But then could it be that without McCain he doesn´t have enough votes?

The irony is that the Repubs are delaying vote on repealing Obamacare, which they are exempt from thanks to Democrats, while Dems are opposed to repealing what they intentionally exempted themselves from in 2010 when passing this welfare bill.

McConnell never intended to get rid of Obamacare "root and branch". This Kabuki Theater is another production meant to distract from his real intention of doing nothing. Republicans were given an assignment seven years ago on which they should have been diligently working. Instead, they procrastinated because like a irresponsible middle school child, they did not want to do it. The date has arrived and the assignment is due. These children have nothing of value to turn in so they use McCain´s surgery to try and cover their for their complete lack of responsibility toward the American people. We´re not buying it. We know willful incompetence when we see it.

Baloney. No more excuses, Mitch. Git ´er done, or just git.

As expected: the GOPe leadership will accomplish nothing this August. If McPain gets back to vote "No" as #5 points out, they will gin up another excuse for their fecklessness and/or insincerity. At least go to recess, so that President Trump can make a few appointments.

New party, yet? Stop wasting your time and hopes on the GOP to deliver.

An old war wound. Where his captors buttstroked (hit with a rifle stock) him in the head with an AK47 rifle. That´s why he´s so loony today. It haunts McCain and taunts us. Did McCain meet his deductible for his Obamacare? That´s right the senate doesn´t have Obamacare they have Golden Parachute Cadillac plans paid for by taxpayers.

From the Mayo Clinic statement:

“Following a routine annual physical, Sen. John McCain underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye on Friday, July 14 at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. Surgeons successfully removed the 5-cm blood clot during a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision. Tissue pathology reports are pending within the next several days.

“The Senator is resting comfortably at home and is in good condition. His Mayo Clinic doctors report that the surgery went ‘very well’ and he is in good spirits. Once the pathology information is available, further care will be discussed between doctors and the family. In the meantime, his Mayo Clinic care team will not be conducting interviews.”


From an article on Jimmy Carter in August 2015:

How is a melanoma brain tumor diagnosed?

It’s diagnosed by brain imaging studies, such as CT and MRI. MRI is a better study with higher sensitivity and specificity. Sometimes, the initial presentation is intracerebral hemorrhages, as these tumors are more likely to bleed, and neurosurgeons may find the tumor when evacuating the blood clot.

returns to work following a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye

Sounds like someone is going out of their way to avoid saying "blood clot in the brain"

Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said in a statement Saturday, shared by McCain´s office, that "[s]urgeons successfully removed the 5-cm blood clot during a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision

5 cm is big. There is no such thing as minor surgery. You can call it minimally invasive craniotomy all you want - it is still poking a hole in the skull.

Must be nice to be a Senator. Trust me, if you have a cerebrovascular thrombosis, your access to a minimally invasive craniotomy will not be nearly so prompt.

The first thing I thought when I heard he had a blot clot above his eye, is that he could be experiencing more problems from the cancer he had on his temple. It also could be the reason he has been so muddled when he was questioning Comey a few weeks ago.

Karl Rove, a former senior adviser to President George W.

This president wastes it when he engages with things like this,” Rove said Sunday during a Fox News panel discussion on Trump´s recent controversial attacks of NFL players who protest for civil rights by taking a knee during the national anthem. Rove added that the president often spends time he ought to be

In Kaepernick and Goodell, Trump Shows

Colin Kaepernick and Roger Goodell hate Donald Trump. Whose side are you on? One of the differences between political and gridiron strategy involves picking one’s opponents. In the latter, the schedule dictates; in the former, guile does. The president manipulated some of the most hated people in America to hate him. He chose his enemies wisely. They unwisely fell into his trap. Maybe next time, Trump should call out Skelator, Cobra Commander, or Moriarty. Alas, one judges those villains not dumb enough to get all of their sinister friends to publicly denounce their denouncer the way Kaepernick and Goodell did.

In Birmingham, they don´t love the governor. More specifically, they don´t love 73-year-old Robert Bentley, the disgraced Republican governor who used taxpayer cash and public resources to have and to hide a steamy affair with a much younger woman. Though Bentley accepted a plea deal and moved out of the governor´s mansion months ago, an embarrassed Alabama electorate still remembers the shame he brought on their state. That´s a problem for Sen. Luther Strange. He could lose his Senate seat because of another man´s sex scandal. "It´s hard to explain to anyone outside the state," says Rep. Bradley Byrne, who

Wall Street might be shocked to learn it is helping bankroll the anti-Trump “resistance” movement that’s aggressively fighting policies it favors — including corporate tax cuts and the repeal of Obama-era banking and health-care regulations. The Obama administration’s massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back-door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis. At least three liberal nonprofit organizations the Justice Department approved to receive funds from multibillion-dollar mortgage settlements were instrumental in killing the ObamaCare repeal bill and are now lobbying against GOP tax reform, as well

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen.

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .

Karl Rove, a former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, ripped into President Donald Trump on Sunday for wasting his platform and his time attacking NFL players protesting by kneeling during the national anthem. “The president has two very valuable assets: his time and his voice. This president wastes it when he engages with things like this,” Rove said Sunday during a Fox News panel discussion on Trump´s recent controversial attacks of NFL players who protest for civil rights by taking a knee during the national anthem.
