Senate GOP leaders have shelved this week's planned health care vote as Sen. John McCain continues to recover from eye surgery, with no timeline for reviving the debate over the controversial Obamacare alternative. Without McCain, who is recovering in Arizona from surgery to remove a blood clot above his left eye, Senate GOP leaders are short of the 50 votes needed to even begin debate on their health care bill. Privately, Republicans said the delay could be as little as a week, though others worried it could stretch for several weeks and jeopardize the entire repeal efforts. Clouding the timetable further, a new Congressional Budget Office estimate for the bill that was expected on Monday had also been delayed, but it could come as early as Tuesday.
