Sen. Chris Coons said Monday that Republicans will slow-walk the health care bill until after the 2018 elections.

“Leader [Mitch] McConnell is going to take some time here, and while he might actually pass a bill in the Senate, he’ll send it into the Republican conference,” Mr. Coons, Delaware Democrat, said on MSNBC, adding that it wouldn’t come out of conference until after the next election cycle.

“Probably until after the ‘18 election,” he said.

Republican senators have already begun working on their own version of the health care repeal bill as several members have said they weren’t pleased with the final result of the House bill.
