McConnell: Odds long to undo health care law

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. — It’s 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 it’s hard to unravel something of the magnitude of the 2,700-page health care law, WHAS-TV reports.

“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,” McConnell said. “Because it’s a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place.”…

…If given control of the Senate next year, McConnell said he would support using budget reconciliation rules to repeal it. Doing so would prohibit Senate filibusters and require only 51 votes to succeed. In 2010, Republicans lambasted Democrats for relying on these rules to pass the health care bill, calling their tactics unusual and hyperpartisan.

“I’m confident they’re going to give us the votes to repeal it,” he said of the American public.

Get up.

Yeah, we got knocked on our tails last week. And? This isn’t the first time and won’t be the last. Now we have a choice to make. We can either choose to roll up into the fetal position and hope our new progressive overlords are merciful, or we can stand up – like Americans – and take this country and our Constitution back.

November is coming, and we’re not going to win this thing sitting around trying to figure out why John Roberts took the off ramp to Stupidville.

Maybe he was eager to bask in the Strange New Respect McCain used to have from the liberal elite up until the time he became inconvenient. Maybe he sought to preserve the legitimacy of the Supreme Court – at least in the eyes of ivory tower law professors, aspiring bureaucrats, and Democrat collectivists. Maybe this was all a cunning scheme to save the Constitution by snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Who cares? It doesn’t matter.

All that matters is what we do about it right now…

…Over? Nothing is over until we say it is.
