Skip to comments.Senate minority leader McConnell: Odds long against lawmakers seeking to gut health care law
Posted on 07/02/2012 7:12:47 PM PDT by madprof98
ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. Its on his to-do list, but U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says the odds are against repealing the health care law championed by President Barack Obama.
The Kentucky Republican said Monday its hard to unravel something of the magnitude of the 2,700-page health care law, WHAS-TV (http://bit.ly/LSUtqX ) reports.
If you thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in this direction, Id say the odds are still on your side, McConnell said. Because its a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place.

Is McConnell wimping out?
Obamacare is like something out of a sci-fi action movie where people are tempted to get the cup of eternal life, the goblet of wisdom, the goose that lives forever and drops golden turds etc.
I assume your question is rhetorical.
Mitch, you’re out! your not a war time leader.
This guy thinks like a loser.
When has Mitchy ever done anything but whimp out.
Is the Pope Catholic?
Romney will win.
Rinos will place so much on the “replace” that “repeal” will fail.
Romney is primaried.
Rinse and repeat
You can protect liberty and keep our country free if it comes easy.... OK?
Mitch the Bitch snatches defeat from the jaws of victory. It’s weak ass weasels like this that hold us back as much as any liberal does. He and Bonehead have been major disappointments...all bark and no bite.
Tell you what ~ get 4 of your buddies together and all of you hold out all 10 fingers. I will provide the 51st.
The scarecrow McConnell not only needs a brain but some courage for his cowardly spine.
Mitch,, 51 votes and end the tax and the whole thing just crashes.
Told ya, told ya, told ya.
I’ve been saying it since the ruling. They will NOT try and overturn it. They can’t overturn it. They are just blowing smoke, again, to get some conservatives, again, to jump like the puppets they are. How do you think we got Romney?
But, hey. Listen to the pundits. Listen to the “leaders”. Keep voting like they tell you and other group will be having this conversation on another conservative site LONG after we are gone. They will be wondering, again ... how did this happen? It’s because some LISTEN to these “conservatives” and believe them.
I will say again, they will do NOTHING to Obamacare, I don’t care if they get 60 seats in the Senate, add 100 in the House, and Romney converts to Baptist.
These GOP elites have been causing my ire to rise steadily since the nominating process began. They said, “we’re gonna give you and you’re gonna like it.”
What a bunch of BS. It was really easy to pass it; therefore it should be be really easy to repeal it.
I sure didn’t.
Attention all Hobbitts, time to go Bilbo Baggins or Frodo on Mordor.
No McConnel isn’t whimping out, McConnel wanted the HC law passed, helped the democrats to pass it, and during the lame duck session he gave Obama and the democrats everything they wanted.
IOW - He is a died in the wool socialist pretending to be a republican, he and Roberts are of the same cloth, communists.
I hate em all
BS. Romney is going to get slaughtered. He’s feckless and a liar of epic proportions. STOP listening to the pundits. This election isn’t going to be close and you can thank Rove & Co for that. In the true swing states, not that idiot list that came out today, Romney is down by 8. He is getting hammered.
Vote McConnell out.
When I am anointed King this turd will walk the steps.
Then, Mr. McConnell, with a no can do attitude, please step aside. Take with you your like-minded senators who have also forgotten the oaths you swore to the Constitution and the People to who you exist to serve. Let those who care about the future of this country do the duty you all have willingly failed to do. We the People will continue to vote out the elitists who think they are our masters. I'm truly disgusted what this country has become and progressed to under such 'leadership' as yours and other elitists like you.
The great thing about Free Republic is that the replies
are often so inciteful,
I often think that printing the topic and replies might make an interesting mailing to the object/person of the post.
Has any FReeper done this in the past?
“it should be easy to repeal...”
Yes it should. As much as I despise Pelousi it is fairly evident that we don’t have any leaders that have her political savvy or are as evil as she is.
It will be hard to repeal.
Especially with guys like McConnell on the job. :)
Try this, McConnell, you emasculate wonder: “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.”
If I agree with him, then I guess it doesn’t matter who wins either the presidential race OR the congressional races... and this pansy ass would be the presumptive majority leader?
We are so screwed.
Wow! That was fast. They have already started going wobbly. I expected them to hold atleast until after the election.
Does he think we rubes on the right side don’t know how hard it is to fight to repeal? Sure glad he was not the leader in charge at Alamos (Alamos may be a bad example, but you get the idea).
Why is he still worthy of a ‘leadership’ role?
McConnell has made sure that he is exempt from Obamacare. The rest of us are unimportant.
Mitch, if the job is too hard for you, please pass the leadership job to someone who has the required capabilities. We don’t have time for incompetent squishes not taking care of business.
I’m ready to go Eowyn on the Witch King of Angmar and the Fell Beast he rode in on.
Why is this guy in a position of leadership? He needs to be gone!
The “chinless wonder” strikes, again. “Turtle, turtle.”
“Is McConnell wimping out?”
In his own mind he fights the good fight everyday by just showing up and keeping his suit neatly pressed all day. Mediocre is okay for Mitch.
Contrast with Pelosi, Reid, Hoyer, Schumer, and the Clintons who define a bad day as one they don’t draw blood from the other side.
Some people do whatever it takes to win, some forfeit the game by not even suiting up. This explains the current state of the nation.
Don’t expect Romney, McCain, Rubio, Boehner, the Bush family and the rest of the Republican elites to change. They are what they are. We can hope all we want, but they will never change. After all, they know what is good for us and don’t need to be told.
Pelosi should be in a jail cell.
0—care may be the law, but it will not withstand the laws of economics. There will continue to be challenges to the mandates including anti-mandate amendment proposals, expanding exemptions, state opt-outs, and widespread non-compliance.
Way to rally the troops - What a pathetic loser. There is no way in hell this guy should be majority leader if we retake the Senate. Of course, he will be w/o any real opposition, because it’s his turn and to do otherwise might hurt his feelings.
Goodbye cruel world—hey it’s not over till the fat lady sings
Noooooo, surely not.
Not a man who has a family crest with the slogan “Death Before Partisanship” with RINO rampant carrying a white flag on yellow field.
He is diminishing expectations. He is not 100% committed.
God! I am tired of pussy-men.
OK someone from KY, it is too late to call anyone down there, was this guy just re-elected or is his term up anytime soon?
