McCain to miss Senate vote on Republican tax bill

McCain's Absence Probably Won't Hurt The GOP's Tax Bill Vote

Senator McCain was diagnosed with cancer this summer.

The 81-year-old senator will undergo physical therapy and rehabilitation at the Mayo Clinic in the state after spending several days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.

A statement issued last Wednesday by the senator's office said he was at Walter Reed receiving treatment for the "normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy".

"An evaluation of his underlying cancer shows he is responding positively to ongoing treatment", Gilbert said.

President Trump addressed reporters Sunday saying that McCain will return to DC if needed. "They've headed back, but I understand he'll come if we ever needed his vote - which hopefully we won't", Trump told reporters. "But he will come back if we need his vote".

The measure is President Donald Trump's last shot at a major legislative accomplishment in his first year in office.

Russell Simmons Accused of Rape by 3 Women
The paper quoted a fourth woman, Christina Moore , who accused Simmons of groping her during a brief encounter in Miami in 2014. He said he would "relentlessly fight against any untruthful character assassination that paints me as a man of violence".

McCain is unlikely to return to Washington this year, one of the sources said.

"He is grateful for the excellent care he continues to receive, and appreciates the outpouring of support from people all over the country", the statement said. The House takes up the final tax bill Tuesday, and once they've passed it, the Senate will bring it to the floor.

"Thank you to everyone for their kind words", she wrote.

McCain's daughter, Meghan tweeted he was doing well and the family will spend Christmas together in Arizona. Without McCain, Republican leaders have a razor-thin margin to pass the final version, which has been in House-Senate negotiations and can not afford any more defections.

McCain rebounded quickly, but his condition has appeared to worsen in recent weeks.

US Senator John McCain will miss a key vote on the Republican tax bill, further narrowing the already-thin margin of support for the controversial measure, US media reported Sunday. He suffered a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon, forcing him to wear a walking brace. "The truth is that as anyone knows whose family has battled cancer or any significant disease, that oftentimes there are side effects of treatment that you have".
