Texas Sen. John Cornyn says passing a health care bill won't get any easier if Republican leaders delay a Senate vote on the GOP health care plan. The Senate's No. 2 Republican said the Senate is on pace to hold a key procedural vote Wednesday.

Cornyn made the comments Sunday at a private gathering hosted by the libertarian Koch brothers in Colorado.
