Applause and whoops greeted McCain as he entered the chamber. His face was pale and his cheek was bruised, and he bore a visible red scar and stitches above his left eye where doctors had removed a blood clot. John McCain has returned to the Senate for a vote concerning healthcare.

"Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio, TV and internet".

"Moderates say the current legislation doesn't solve all the problems, and conservatives say they want every line gutted in this bill (Obamacare) because it's all government overreach", he said, referring to conservatives' claims that Obamacare gives too much power to bureaucrats in Washington.

If the Senate approves a motion to begin debating a healthcare bill, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will determine which proposal has the most Republican support and move forward to a vote, Republicans said. He received a standing ovation when he walked in.

Last week Sens. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Susan Collins of ME, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said they wouldn't support repeal of the ACA, which would have left millions of Americans stranded when the GOP failed to put forth a viable health care plan to replace it.

The plan is for the Senate to take a major procedural vote Tuesday afternoon to advance the bill to overhaul health care later Tuesday. Sen.

Ahead of the vote, the path forward remained murky, irritating some Republicans. He also thanked McCain for coming for the vote. "That's positive", said Sen.

Trump's scattershot approach to passing the GOP health care legislation might have been foreseen in his varying views on health care generally during the campaign. Senate Republicans have considered two versions but have been unable to reach consensus after estimates showed they could lead to as many as 22 million fewer Americans being insured. "McCain, or for me or for others - but would put at risk such people who have such a serious illness".
