"McConnell: ‘It’s A Lot Harder’ To Undo Obamacare"

Republicans have pledged to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act if the party regains control of the Senate and presidency in 2012. But Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is less than confident about the probability of eliminating the law. Speaking to a small group in Elizabethtown, Kentucky on Monday, McConnell admitted, “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.” Indeed, Republicans face an uphill battle in undoing the measure.
