Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said Wednesday that he expects a health care vote the week after the July Fourth recess.

“The vote will occur the week after the Fourth of July when the Senate comes back in,” Mr. Price said on “The Hugh Hewitt Show.”

But Mr. Price said Senate Republicans are working on finding a way to come together in the meantime.  

“I think it’s important for folks to appreciate that once the vote was postponed, or the scheduled vote was postponed yesterday, that people didn’t just retreat to their corners and not continue this conversation. Work is going on literally as we speak on what kinds of things are necessary in order to get the support that’s needed to get this over the finish line in the Senate,” he said.

Mr. Price said the Congressional Budget Office will need to score the revised bill, creating another battle, but he is confident a vote will be held in “a number of days.”
