(AP) GOP: Voters will have final say on health care law
Republican leaders in Congress say voters will have the final word on health care in the November elections, and the GOP is betting that the law’s unpopularity will be enough to drive Democrats from power.
The White House’s response? Bring it on.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell tells “Fox News Sunday” that the health law just upheld last week by the Supreme Court was a “job-killing, tax-increasing” measure that has angered voters.
McConnell says the law’s opponents have “one last chance here to beat Obamacare, and we can do that in the November election.”
In a separate interview, White House chief of staff Jack Lew tells Fox that voters are tired of the health care debate and want to focus instead on job creation.
