Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Republican says the odds are against repealing Obama Care.
The Kentucky Republican said Monday it’s hard to unravel something of the magnitude of the 2,700-page health care law, WHAS-TV reports.
McConnell added “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 Health Care Repeal Unlikely, But He will Try
McConnell discussed the law in comments to about 50 people at Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown.
The court upheld the law’s crucial mandate that individuals buy health insurance or face a penalty. As you see Republicans are now calling it a penalty and not a tax.
McConnell says he’ll do whatever he can to repeal the law. Don’t count on it.
If given control of the Senate next year, McConnell said he would support using budget reconciliation rules to repeal it. Doing so would prohibit Senate filibusters and require only 51 votes to succeed.
