McCain, 80, was diagnosed with brain cancer after an operation in Phoenix. McCain was in Arizona resting after his procedure and diagnosis before returning to the Senate on Tuesday. With McCain's "aye" vote the Senate was split 50-50 and Vice President Mike Pence voted to break the tie and move the bill forward.
"My service here is the most important job I've had in my life and I'm so grateful, so grateful to the people of Arizona for the privilege, for the honor of serving here and the opportunities it gives me to play a small role in the history of the country that I love," McCain said in a speech on the Senate floor after the motion to proceed to debate on the bill passed.
