GOP defections postpone health-care vote

(WASHINGTON TIMES) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shelved plans for the Senate to vote this week on the Republicans’ proposed Obamacare repeal, suffering an embarrassing setback Tuesday as he acknowledged the bill he wrote failed to win over enough troops in his own party.

Republican leaders insisted they will try again in July, but they struggled to explain how they might bridge the gap within their party, where conservatives want the bill to further dismantle Obamacare while moderates say it already goes too far.

As many as a dozen Republicans signaled reluctance to back the proposal, leaving Mr. McConnell well shy of the 50 senators he would need to clear the bill this week.
