McConnell: I'll repeal Obamacare as majority leader
By SEUNG MIN KIM | 6/29/12 3:12 PM EDT
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) declared Friday that repealing the health care law would top his priority list if he controls the chamber come 2013.
If [Mitt] Romney is in the White House and I am the majority leader of the Senate, I assure you repeal of Obamacare is the first item on the agenda, McConnell on Laura Ingrahams radio show Friday.
By using a budget process called reconciliation, a theoretical Senate GOP majority could successfully vote to repeal the law with just 51 votes, rather than a filibuster-proof 60. Republicans need to pick up four seats to win control of the Senate, or three if Romney wins the White House.

McConnell is ALL TALK and NO SPINE! He needs to be kicked the hell out of office. I am tired of the pontificating of these pussies!
I just scoffed myself stupid.
I had to check twice to make sure this wasn’t satire.
I’d believe this professional wimp if he had balls...or even a chin.
He needs to be sedated, he is having wild dreams again. What a wuss.
A lot of strong talk. But where is the action?
He’s just trying to con us into voting for Republicans so we can have ruling class Republicans continue to suppress the Tea Party Republicans. And oh yea, appoint more justices like John Roberts to the Supreme Court.
Miotch, Soetoro’s biotch, won’t be majority leader next year. He’s replaceable.
McConnell is an invertibrate. He has no backbone to lead. Nor does he have the political instinct to outmanuver the Dems
We will have to rely on state governors to lead the revolt on ObamaCare
How about we support various Senate candidates who will repeal the whole darned thing, and maybe also elect a majority leader who is more faithful to the citizens than McConnell????
Ted Cruz in Texas comes to mind.
The link reveals what Alice (in Wonderland) saw when she fell down the rabbit hole and wound up in the Supreme Court.
Tippy the Turtle has no business being the Majority Leader. Besides, someone explain how they avoid the filibuster. There has to be some sort of loophole for that.
I think this article is mis-titled.
Here is what the turtle actually said.
“If [Mitt] Romney is in the White House and I am the majority leader of the Senate, I assure you repeal of Obamacare IS THE FIRST ITEM ON THE AGENDA” ???? So what?, “We need to start all over and not make things worse, and I think that’s the message for the fall election, McConnell said. Give us a chance to repeal this monstrosity and we will start all over with much more modesty, much more respect for the federal system.”
The turtle’s statement gives me absolutely no confidence that McConnell: “I’ll repeal Obamacare as majority leader” is doing anything other than making another campaign promise.
I just sent an email to McConnell and simply said:
“No speeches....just do it.”
ok. then there should be no problem with you, mcconnell, putting the repeal pledge and proposed bill in writing, signing it (along with all your cronies) and then publishing it.
How did this groveling jellyfish get into his position, anyway?
It has been explained. Using the same procedure Reid used to pass it needing only 51 votes, called RECONCILIATION, he is promising quick Senate repeal, followed by Romney’s signature.
If the Senate Majority Leader was someone like Jim DeMint, or perhaps James Inhofe, these words might have some weight.
As for Mitch ‘the Squish’ McConnell, he’s part of the problem NOT part of the answer. He needs to relinquish his lofty position in favor of someone with some guts.
