McConnell to Add Obamacare Repeal to Crucial Highway Bill

Friday, 24 Jul 2015 09:46 AM

Republican leaders in the Senate will use a must-pass highway bill to start another fight over the president's signature healthcare law.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to introduce an amendment to the transportation bill to fully repeal Obamacare.

McConnell's spokesman says that would set up a likely vote on the healthcare amendment on Sunday.

The Senate is rushing to complete the highway legislation before states face a cutoff of highway and transit aid one week from now.

The House has voted about 50 times to repeal Obamacare, but the Senate was under Democratic control until this year and has not followed suit.

The healthcare law survived a critical challenge at the Supreme Court last month.
