Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shared what his first thought was after the latest GOP-led effort to dismantle Obamacare failed last month in the Senate, the Washington Examiner reported Sunday.

While admitting that he chose "not to dwell on situations where we come up a little bit short," McConnell revealed to Republicans at Graves County High School in Kentucky on Saturday the first thing that came to mind when Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., cast the deciding vote against the GOP's "skinny" repeal bill.

"Even on the night when we came up one vote short of our dream to repeal and replace Obamacare, here's the first thing I thought about — feel better, Hillary Clinton could be president," McConnell said, WFPL reported.

McCain joined two Republicans and all Democrats and Independents in voting down the measure that was a bare-bones attempt to get the legislation in conference with House lawmakers. McCain later explained why he voted against it, explaining he feared the "skinny" bill as it was might become law.

McConnell added he was willing to work with Democrats on healthcare legislation as long as they were interested in "real reforms."
