Senate feels pressure for summer healthcare vote

Senate Republicans are under mounting pressure to pass an ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill before the congressional recess in August.

While Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is wary of committing to a specific deadline after the House struggled to pass a bill, the White House wants the upper chamber to hit the gas.

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and House GOP lawmakers are publicly nudging the Senate to vote before lawmakers leave town at the end of July.

McConnell remained tight-lipped on Tuesday, only saying that Senate Republicans are “all about healthcare these days ... which we will move forward sometime in the near future.”
