U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Friday regarding the latest White House effort to reverse Americans' opposition to the Democrat health spending bill that stifles job creation and increases costs:

"More promises of lower premiums for some people at some point in the future is little comfort to those who are already seeing higher premiums or won't be able to keep the coverage they have as the President promised. We need to repeal this bill and replace it with commonsense reforms that will actually lower costs, prevent unsustainable entitlement promises and make it easier for employers to start hiring again."
