The Senate has struggled to pass a health care bill, delaying a vote on a previous version of the legislation in June.
But McConnell abruptly called off the vote when it was clear he was well short of the Republican votes he needed.
When asked at a Sunday news briefing about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's decision to delay the health care, White House director of media affairs Helen Aguirre Ferre (ah-GEE'-ray feh-RAY') replied: "We wish Sen".
"While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act", McConnell, R-Ky., said on Saturday. He is at home with his family and, "on the advice of his doctors", will be recovering in Arizona this week, a spokeswoman said.
Achieving Mr Trump's goal to end predecessor Barack Obama's 2010 sweeping reforms has been elusive in the first six months of the new administration.
The national trade association for insurance companies is not impressed by any of this, realizing that the GOP's "fixes" are going to turn them into the most hated industry in America-as if multitudes from coast to coast hadn't already lost their patience with rising premiums, co-pays and deductibles before 2016's "repeal and replace" charade. Susan Collins, R-Maine, doesn't want to proceed to the bill because it would actually address rampant Medicaid spending.

She added, "There are about eight to 10 Republican senators who have serious concerns about this bill". It also creates a $100 billion tax break for people who open health care savings accounts, enlarging the role for those fee-skimming middlemen with an option that only people with high enough incomes can afford to establish and use.
At least two Republicans - Sens.
US Republican Senator Rand Paul has said he doesn't think his party has the votes to pass the Obamacare repeal-and-replace bill.
When Senate Republican leaders unveiled a revised version of their health care bill on Thursday, Mr. McCain said it did not include the measures he had been seeking to protect the people of Arizona and newly eligible Medicaid beneficiaries, in particular.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated the bill would cut Medicaid by almost $800 billion by 2026, and would cut Medicaid 35 percent come 2036.
Trump declared a day earlier that failure would make him "very angry" and that he would blame McConnell.
The bill unwinds Obamacare's Medicaid expansion over three years, from 2021 to 2024. President Donald Trump weighed in Friday morning, tweeting: "Republicans Senators are working hard to get their failed ObamaCare replacement approved". This addition could bring down costs for some, but has caused contention with some moderate senators because it could hurt those with pre-existing conditions.
