It was made clear to me yesterday that save for the unlikely event the whole health-care law were nixed, congressional leaders knew what they would be saying today, which they believe is the voice of a majority of Americans: This bill does not work and should be struck down. And so Senator McConnell e-mails:
Today’s decision makes one thing clear: Congress must act to repeal this misguided law. Obamacare has not only limited choices and increased health care costs for American families, it has made it harder for American businesses to hire. Today’s decision does nothing to diminish the fact that Obamacare’s mandates, tax hikes, and Medicare cuts should be repealed and replaced with common sense reforms that lower costs and that the American people actually want. It is my hope that with new leadership in the White House and Senate, we can enact these step-by-step solutions and prevent further damage from this terrible law.
