President Trump got something he wanted today… the chance of repealing Obamacare is still alive in the Senate. There was a tie vote on whether to begin debate -- broken by Vice President Mike Pence.  It’s not yet clear what’s in the bill, but the President was gratified.

Despite a recent diagnosis of brain cancer, Republican John McCain travelled to Washington from Arizona to vote for debate — even though he opposes the current options – and decried what he sees as a decline in Senate procedures.

Jeffery Young, who covers health care for Huffington Post, says that with multiple bills on the table, Senators don’t really know what they were voting for.
