McConnell To Push For Repeal Of Health Care Law

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell says he’ll push to repeal the health care overhaul passed by congressional Democrats, and if that fails he’ll try to undo the law “piece by piece.”

McConnell will lead a larger Republican minority when the next Congress convenes. Republicans gained at least six Senate seats in Tuesday’s election, and the GOP held a Senate seat from Kentucky with Rand Paul’s victory.

McConnell told Kentucky reporters in a conference call Wednesday the election was a referendum on President Barack Obama, the outgoing Democratic-led Congress and their “massive overreach.”

He called the health care law a “monstrosity,” and says his first choice is to repeal and replace it. If that fails due to a lack of votes or a presidential veto, his next option is to review the law “piece by piece.”

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
