Exclusive - McConnell Vows Obamacare Repeal 'Will Be Job One'
This morning, WHAS 11 in Kentucky reported that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated regarding Obamacare’s 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.” The comment prompted widespread consternation from conservatives concerned that McConnell and Republican leadership might somehow go wobbly in the quest to repeal Obamacare.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News today, Senator McConnell put all such fears to rest. “I have said many times that if I'm the leader of the majority next year, I commit to the American people that the repeal of ‘Obamacare’ will be job one,” he reiterated. “That includes pursuing reconciliation. What people need to understand is that this is literally a fight for the future of our country and Democrats have proven during this debate that they will stop at nothing to protect this massive expansion of government into our lives and our health care. We need to be aware that this will take every ounce of our energy to accomplish.”
McConnell went on to explain that the fight would not stop with the election: “Our success is dependent upon the voices of the many who are concerned about Obamacare to get involved and stay involved. Do not shut up, do not sit down, do not be intimidated. Keep fighting with every ounce of energy you have. We’ll do the same. The road to repeal begins with a Republican Senate and Mitt Romney in the White House, but it won’t end for me until this historic mistake is wiped off the books for good.”
The fight begins now. And Republicans are obviously united in their determination to repeal Obamacare, regardless of the challenges.
