McConnell to Introduce Repeal of Healthcare Overhaul

Tuesday, 01 Feb 2011 02:53 PM

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said he will introduce a measure to repeal the healthcare overhaul.

McConnell, of Kentucky, said all 47 Senate Republicans will vote for the repeal. He said no agreement had been reached on how a vote will be held, though he added, “It’ll be clear who is for repeal and who isn’t.”

Democratic leaders said they will defeat the measure. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, told reporters he had been told that McConnell plans to introduce the measure as the first amendment to a bill on the Senate floor to reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration.

Reid said a repeal of the healthcare law would be “a deficit buster to say the least” and that the FAA measure would create or save almost 300,000 jobs.

“It appears that there’s a plan to divert attention from the first jobs bill we’ve had in some time,” Reid said.

A repeal “won’t pass,” said New York Sen. Chuck Schumer.
