"But yes, I believe that when we have a full contingent of Senators that we'll have that vote and it's important that we do so", he added.

McConnell's new bill made a major change to tax-sheltered health savings accounts, which was also advocated by Cruz.

McCain's surgery was a minimally invasive craniotomy, or a surgical opening into the skull, with an eyebrow incision, a statement from his office said, adding that McCain, 80, is resting at his home. "His Mayo Clinic doctors report that the surgery went "very well" and he is in good spirits", the hospital said in a statement.

A close vote has already been predicted to pass the GOP health care bill, with all Democrats and independents coming out against it and some Republicans opposed or undecided.

Senate budget rules are giving opponents of the rollback of the 2010 health care law an easy way to attack Republicans for hypocrisy.

Collins has said she plans to vote against the bill, reiterating the position in the Sunday interview.

"While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act", McConnell said Saturday. The revised BCRA released on Thursday will now be "scored" by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO), with results expected sometime next week.

"But if we are not able to reach a consensus, the Senate should return to regular order, hold hearings, and receive input from senators of both parties, and produce a bill that finally provides Americans with access to affordable and quality health care".

Members of Congress and their staff get their health care though a small-group exchange in the District of Columbia, which will likely keep most of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, according to The Washington Post.

The delay in voting this week could have an effect on how people perceive the bill, Paul said Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation".

"I do want to see more flexibility in the insurance market, but Sen".

Many of those senators are waiting for their Republican governors to weigh in on the legislation before moving forward and are bristling at proposed reductions in Medicaid spending. So you are asking me what number am I comfortable with - well, I don't know.
