gop, continues, repeal, obamacare, effortThe strategy now will be to delay implementation of Obamacare and overturn its most onerous provisions. “We think it is just the beginning,” Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (pictured) said after Wednesday’s vote. “This issue is still ahead of us and we will be going back at it in a variety of ways.”

Republicans will try to axe funding for the law’s implementation when a stop-gap government spending measure expires March 4. McConnell notes that Republicans withheld more than $1 million in funding for the law that Democrats tried to include in a $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill in December.
