McConnell Readies ObamaCare Repeal

“‘If you thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in this direction, I'd say the odds are still on your side. Because it's a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place.’"
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says it’s an uphill battle in the fight to repeal the health care law fronted by President Obama. Nonetheless, McConnell has mentioned he would support using budget reconciliation rules to repeal it, which would prohibit Senate filibusters and require only 51 votes to succeed.
