Given the difficulty of repealing the new healthcare law, many Republicans are seeking to withhold funding for it instead. Given the GOP’s new majority in the House and resurgence in the Senate, that’s a realistic goal. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell says he’s carefully examining ways to implement de-funding, The Hill reports .

Repeal will be difficult with President Barack Obama in office, he notes. "But if we can put a full repeal on his desk and replace it with the kind of common-sense forms that we were advocating during the debate to reduce spending, we owe it to the American people to do that."
