McConnell: Job 1 Is Repeal Obamacare

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Wednesday that Republicans would move quickly to repeal Obamacare after Donald Trump takes office now that the GOP has retained its majority. “It’s pretty high on our agenda as you know,” McConnell said. “I would be shocked if we didn’t move forward and keep our commitment to the American people.” He did not commit to using budget reconciliation to repeal the law, but that is the likely outcome for Republicans. There is no plan to replace health insurance for the millions of people who will lose it.
