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.
