Back in the United States, on Capitol Hill, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has delayed a vote on the revised Republican healthcare bill as Arizona Republican Senator John McCain is unable to vote while he’s home recovering from a surgery to remove a blood clot above his left eye. The Congressional Budget Office has not yet finished its review of the Republicans’ latest healthcare bill, unveiled Thursday, but it’s similar to the previous bill, which would have caused 22 million Americans to lose their health insurance over the next 10 years. Over the weekend, Republican governors confronted Vice President Mike Pence and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price over the healthcare plan during a closed-door session at the National Governors Association conference.
