Skip to comments.McConnell: We’ll Make 'Every Effort' to Repeal Obamacare — But Its Namesake is Still in Office
Posted on 12/08/2014 1:54:09 PM PST by Up Yours Marxists
Incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, says he has every intention of voting to repeal Obamacare with a new GOP majority in January, but also said people should be realistic about what to expect in the way of repeal with President Obama still in the White House.
We certainly will have a vote on proceeding to a bill to repeal Obamacare. It was a very large issue in the campaign, Mr. McConnell told Roll Call. Were certainly gonna keep our commitment to the American people to make every effort we can to repeal it.
It is a statement to the obvious, however, that Obama of Obamacare is the president of the United States, so I dont want people to have [unrealistic] expectations about what may actually become law with Obama of Obamacare in the White House, he said. But we intend to keep our commitment to the American people.

D’oh ,just remove the wheels and make sure it gets no fuel , FOOL
Which means .... He won’t
McConnell will do NOTHING.
Yeah, sure you will.
Take out totally stupid benefits which almost nobody uses and then work up from there. It ain't rocket science, Mitch.
If you've forgotten already, look up what the Democrat congress did to Bush when they took control in 2007.
It all depends on what the meaning of the word ‘effort’ is.
McTurd-le is full of hot air. The Uniparty sucks.
He never had any intention to.
Put repeal up for a vote and see which Marxists have the stomach to vote for it now that many of their political cronies have been sent home.
They’ll make every effort to use DC subterfuge to hoodwink conservatives and some other Republicans into thinking they are actually trying to repeal Obamacare.
Just as they’ll use every ruse and subterfuge to pretend they are actually fighting Obama’s illegal executive action to grant legal status to illegal aliens.
It will be in a new bill that we have to pass first to find out what is in it.....
You know how damned well that worked out last time they did this crap....
[ It is called death by a thousand cuts. Hamstring it. Start by repealing the most popular things like the medical devices tax. Then gut it a little at a time.

I would also add that they should pass a bill that forbids ANYONE in the executive branch structure from altering it in any way or the execution of it in any way.
Then pass a bill removing the exemption of congress and the executive branch from obama care.
FORCE the power elite who wanted the G-D Damned thing to actually live by it!
“I tried everything I could to not raise taxes on the middle class”
McConnell is a liar.
The GOP should have had an entire strategy already mapped out for this.
These jokers have no intention of repealing it. Their corporate lobbyist donors love it too much.
[ McTurd-le is full of hot air. The Uniparty sucks. ]
Of course if I ran the senate i would pooison the well on Obama care so to speak so much that all the jackasses who wanted it would have no choice but to vomit it back up and reluctantly repeal it....
But then again Obama’s “Bitch McConnell” has never really been on our side and so will only pretend to fight against it and do nothing, like a dry descicated fart in the desert wind...
All sound and fury but nothing to count...
What an idiot. Obamacare’s namesake is not in the White House. Obamacare’s eponym is in the White House.
