OBAMACARE-LITE: Senate Republicans Halt Health Care Overhaul as Ted Cruz Maintains Opposition (includes video)

After days of arm-twisting, Senate Republican leaders on Tuesday essentially conceded that they had not secured the votes to move forward on a massive overhaul of the American health care system and would pick up the issue again in July.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky emerged with the updated plans from a lunch with other GOP senators, along with the news that the chamber's Republicans were headed to the White House for a meeting with President Donald Trump.

Both U.S. Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz were at the lunch, as were several senior advisers to the president.
Cruz has yet to back the Senate GOP bill but publicly maintains he is open to supporting the effort. He is part of a bloc of senators who are withholding support for the bill, asking for changes to move the legislation in a more conservative direction.
