The Senate's Republican leader says the White House's health care summit was important because it allowed GOP lawmakers to show their expertise on the issue and explain their opposition.

Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky also predicts that all 41 Republican senators will vote against the health care overhaul legislation if it comes to a vote.

McConnell says last week's summit gave the GOP the chance "to display some of our brightest, most knowledgeable Republicans" and explain why people oppose reform legislation that is a "massive government takeover of health care."

He spoke on CNN's "State of the Union."
