McConnell: Senate Will ‘Defer’ Vote On Republican Health Care Bill

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., leaves a meeting of GOP senators in the U.S. capitol on June 22, when most Republican senators were given their first opportunity to look at legislation aimed at overhauling the Affordable Care Act during the closed door meeting.

The senate will not try to move to debate on the GOP bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act until Sen. John McCain returns to Washington.
