The United States Senate will be postponing the Republican healthcare bill until Sen John McCain recovers from surgery, said Sen Mitch McConnell on Saturday evening. 

McCain had surgery on Friday to remove a blood clot from his left eye and was advised by doctors to stay at home next week.

With all democrats having come out against it, and republican support wavering, the bill is on thin ice, needing just one more no vote to prevent it from coming up for debate.

Check out The Guardian’s breakdown of the bill here.
