Sen. Thad Cochran's health monitored ahead of vote

Sen. Thad Cochran's health monitored ahead of vote”

Republican leaders in the Senate are keeping a close eye on the health conditions of two senior members - John McCain of Arizona and Thad Cochran of MS - ahead of a crucial vote on the GOP tax plan next week. John, take a little time.

McCain's office said late Wednesday that he is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland receiving treatment for the "normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy". "Senator McCain looks forward to returning to work as soon as possible". Senator McCain has the same form of brain cancer.

Now in his sixth Senate term, McCain underwent surgery in mid-July to remove a 2-inch (51-millimeter) blood clot in his brain after being diagnosed with an aggressive tumor called a glioblastoma. He was diagnosed in July with a primary glioblastoma, a type of brain tumor.

McCain returned to Walter Reed this week for treatment that his office said was related to side effects of his cancer therapy.

Sen. McCain's office released the statement Wednesday afternoon, saying Sen. During his days as a schoolboy he learned, "If we stuck to those standards of integrity and honor, then we could be proud of ourselves". "He's obviously recovering from the effects of the treatment and so we expect him back".

McCain, the Armed Services Committee chairman, has missed several votes in the Senate this week and didn't attend a White House ceremony held Tuesday for President Donald Trump to sign the annual defence bill into law.

In a speech in Philadelphia in October this year, McCain fired back at Trump with a complete rejection of Trump's view of the United States' role in the world.

"We have some main tools for treating cancer". Biden, who has been pressing to find a cure for cancer, was on "The View" to promote his new book, "Promise Me, Dad", about his dear son Beau's battle with the disease.

As she began to weep, Biden switched his seat to sit nearer her and hold her hand.

"You may remember when you were a little kid, your dad took care of my Beau", Biden said to Meghan, 33, as she wiped away tears.

He talked about how the two had run against each other in the 2008 presidential race. "We can combine two drugs at the same time". I said, I know, and I mean this sincerely, I know if I picked up the phone tonight and called John McCain and said, .

In light of all this, I feel confused by McCain's voting for the tax bill, knowing, as he must have known, that so many predictions based on objective facts have said that this tax law would benefit those who are rich at the expense of the rest of us who are not rich. 'I need your help, come, ' he'd get on a plane and come. "And I would for him".
