Statement from Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell on Healthcare Passage

Lady Libertas received this Press Release – I am gathering my thoughts for my own response…

McConnell Statement on House Passage of Partisan Health Spending Bill:
‘Senate Republicans will now do everything in our power to replace the massive tax hikes, Medicare cuts and mandates, with the reforms our constituents have been calling for throughout this debate’

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement regarding House passage of the partisan health spending bill:

“Today’s vote will go down in history as the culmination of a year-long quest by a partisan majority to force its will on the public over bipartisan opposition. And it marks the beginning of a backlash against Democrats in Washington who lost their way and lost the trust of the people who elected them. Americans rejected the process and the special deals that brought us to this point, and they are demanding an explanation. A bill that had a simple goal — to lower the cost of health care — became instead a monstrosity held together by special deals, a rejection of the clear will of the voters, and Presidential appeals to put party first. That’s not reform.

“Americans had already rejected this bill before today’s vote, along with the unseemly power grab that led to its passage. They are tired of being treated more like obstacles to be overcome than constituents to be respected and heard. But they will be heard. Senate Republicans will now do everything in our power to replace the massive tax hikes, Medicare cuts and mandates with the reforms our constituents have been calling for throughout this debate.”
