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

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.

Just before noon, the Associated Press ended almost 18 hours of silence on the arrest of IT staffer Imran Awan yesterday as he was attempting to leave the country. The report spun the news in the most favorable way it could for beleaguered Democrats, making Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz look like the victim as it headlined her spokesman´s claim that she fired Awan Tuesday after learning of his arrest. The fact is that Schultz has been involved in obstructing investigations into Awan´s activities for months. Here are the headline and first few paragraphs of that conveniently unbylined AP report (also saved

This is hard to swallow. The US military blows $41.6 million a year on Viagra for its troops — about five times more than the estimated medical costs for transgender servicepeople, according to a new report. Spending on the little blue pills is part of $84 million total the military plunks down annually for erectile dysfunction medicines, according to the Washington Post, which cited a 2015 report by the Military Times. The eye-popping stats resurfaced Wednesday, the same day President Trump announced a ban on transgender people serving in the military because of “the tremendous medical costs and disruption that

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do

BALTIMORE - African American activists have a message for Democrats: If you want to win back the White House, strongly consider a black person on the ticket. On their list are a growing roster of black politicians, notably Sens.

The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight

Monday on WISN’s “The Jay Weber Show,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian election interference by saying Mueller was “anything but” a “biased partisan.” A listener asked Ryan a question about why Republicans in Congress are not doing more to defend Trump against “what is becoming an obvious witch-hunt.” Ryan replied, “Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican, who was appointed by a Republican, who served in the Republican administration, and crossed over — I mean and stayed on until his term ended.” He continued, “I don’t think many people are saying Bob

Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor´s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do. In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he heard from friends about the elderly senator. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter, the paying customer realized that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose. (Snip) First it was reported that

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that
