U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement today following the House vote to repeal Obamacare:
"The Republican leadership in the House has once again fulfilled its commitment to protect the American people from the tax hikes and mandates in Obamacare that are driving up health care costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire. The President's health law is the single worst piece of legislation passed by Congress in modern times. I've already committed to making its repeal the first order of business in the Senate next year if I am the leader of the Majority. But in the meantime, I have filed a repeal amendment and will work to bring it up for a vote in the Senate."
