Three Republican senators announced their opposition to the current draft of the Senate health care bill Tuesday afternoon, shortly after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell decided to delay a vote on the plan until after the July 4 recess.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell makes a statement after a health care bill meeting with President Trump at the White House.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) says the Senate GOP health care bill is "rotten at the core" and will not succeed in winning over the American people unless it is changed.
Senator McConnell didn't have any tricks up his sleeves on health care. In his first major test as the leader of a party responsible for governing rather than obstructing, Senator McConnell fell short of the end zone. The Senate Majority Leader is shrewd enough to know when he is fighting a losing battle. He decided that his party needs to regroup or they would suffer defeat.
