He turned out to be the executioner.

Sen. John McCain cast the deciding vote to sink his fellow Republicans' so-called "skinny repeal" of the Affordable Care Act.

Opponents of President Barack Obama's healthcare law who wanted to get rid of the penalty people were assessed for not h. Some Democratic Senators broke into scattered applause.

"If Mitch McConnell can not get the job done then those 52 Republican senators have got to get together and try to figure out who amongst them have the leadership capability of getting the job done", he said. McCain had just saved the signature legislative achievement of the man who beat him for the presidency in 2008, a law the senator himself had vigorously campaigned against while seeking a sixth Senate term previous year.

He will soon return to Phoenix to begin treatment for his cancer - possibly chemotherapy that will be so debilitating no one is sure when he will return to the Senate. "It is our responsibility to preserve that, even when it requires us to do something less satisfying than 'winning, ' " he said. "The vote last night presents the Senate with an opportunity to start fresh. It is now time to return to regular order with input from all of our members - Republicans and Democrats - and bring a bill to the floor of the Senate for amendment and debate".

As the Senate waited for the vote to take place, McCain walked off the Senate floor to take a call from President Donald Trump himself, Politico reported. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and the ailing John McCain.

"Not sufficient", said McCain, who returned to the Capitol Tuesday.

Ted Cruz told a pool of reporters after the midnight vote.

After sunrise, Mr. Schumer credited Mr. McCain's "internal gyroscope of right and wrong".

The Senate voted 49-51, with Arizona Sen. His face looked exasperated. Democrats have shown little interest in working toward the GOP's idea of a total overhaul of Obamacare, instead calling for boosting the government control and taxpayer spending that are at the heart of the 2010 law. Chris Murphy of CT described it later in a post on the website Medium, "Time seems to stand still".

El presidente afirmó que Venezuela es un país 'profundamente democrático', donde durante 18 años 'se han dado 20 elecciones continuas.

While these senators were surely caught by surprise that three members of their own party chose to vote on principle as opposed to party lines, Trump-loving media personalities were downright livid that Collins, Murkowski and McCain helped save Obamacare. With Democrats unanimously opposed, McConnell could lose only two Republicans in the 52-48 Senate.

McCain's biggest legislative success, aside from national security matters, came in 2002 on a campaign finance law that restricted big donations that national political parties could collect. With that one moment, seven years of urgent GOP promises were dead, likely never to be revived.

McConnell's remarks in the immediate aftermath were a bitter rebuke.

"If they're going to quit, well then by golly, maybe they ought to start at the top with Mitch McConnell leaving his position and letting somebody new, somebody bold, somebody conservative take the reins", Brooks said on CNN.

Russian Federation retaliates for sanctions by ordering cut to diplomatic staff
The legislation bars President Trump from easing or waiving the penalties on Russian Federation unless Congress agrees. If the bill obtains enough bipartisan support among lawmakers, however, Congress would be able to override a veto.

For too many Americans facing the devastating diagnosis of cancer, the question is not only, 'Will they survive?' but if they do, 'Will they lose everything to bankruptcy in the process?' I can not understand why health care continues to be such a hard issue in this country.
