McConnell to pin down colleagues on healthcare

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellMitch McConnellMcConnell to pin down colleagues on healthcareLooking back on ‘healthcare hell’McCain returning to Senate in time for health voteMORE (R-Ky.) appears to be blundering into a healthcare vote this week, despite not having a deal on a Senate healthcare bill.

Public struggles aside, McConnell actually does have a plan: pin down fellow Republican senators on their seven-year-old promise to repeal ObamaCare.

McConnell told activists from Tea Party Patriots, FreedomWorks and Americans for Limited Government during a Monday meeting at the Capitol that a key procedural vote will happen Tuesday afternoon.

The motion to proceed needs the backing of 50 senators to pass — assuming Vice President Pence breaks a tie — and it will be close.
