McConnell: Full Repeal of ObamaCare Rulings

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) immediately took the Senate floor this morning to respond to the Supreme Court's ruling on health care. Senator McConnell called for a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act rulings in his floor speech:
“Republicans won’t let up whatsoever in our determination to repeal this terrible law and replace it with the kind of reforms that will truly address the problems it was meant to solve. 
“We pass plenty of terrible laws around here that the court finds constitutional. Constitutionality was never an argument to keep this law in place, and it’s certainly not one you’ll hear from Republicans in Congress. 
“There’s only one way to truly ‘fix’ Obamacare, and that’s a full repeal that clears the way for common-sense, step-by-step reforms that protect Americans’ access to the care they need, from the doctor they choose, at a lower cost. And that’s precisely what Republicans are committed to doing."
