UPDATE: At a press conference, various Senate Republicans spoke about how Obamacare was collapsing, premiums were increasing, and Medicaid had been expanded far beyond its original intended purpose.
The Senate will not vote on the proposed health care bill until after next week's July 4th holiday, it was announced on Tuesday.
