OP-ED: ObamaCare failed Americans. Now it's time for relief

by Sen. Mitch McConnell

By nearly any measure, ObamaCare has failed: It didn't lower costs, it didn't increase choice, middle-class families continue to lose health plans they were promised they could keep, and Americans continue to call for ObamaCare's repeal. They spoke loudly again this November, and about 8 out of 10 favor changing ObamaCare significantly or replacing it altogether. We in Congress hear you, and we have already begun to act. The Senate is currently working to pass the legislative tools to bring r… Continue Reading


OP-ED: Back To Work For The American People

by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

When the American people elected a new Republican majority in 2014, they called for the Senate to get back to work. From day one, that's what this majority has set out to accomplish - and we've gotten a lot done as a result. Consider what we were able to achieve for the American people last year alone. Enacting permanent tax relief for families and small businesses. Bringing an end to a job-killing energy embargo from the 1970s. Rebuilding our nation's crumbling infrastructure with the most si… Continue Reading


OP-ED: 5 Broken Promises Americans Are Remembering On ObamaCare’s 6th Anniversary

by Mitch McConnell

Exactly six years ago, Obamacare was signed into law after being forced through Congress over the objections of the American people.

OP-ED: Promise kept: Senate passes Obamacare repeal legislation

by Mitch McConnell

When I became the Senate Majority Leader one year ago, I pledged to Kentuckians and to the American people that a new Republican Senate would work to repeal Obamacare, the most disastrous law in a generation. So I'm proud to report that the Senate has succeeded in this important task. Under my leadership, a majority of the U.S. Senate voted to repeal Obamacare, and passed the first repeal bill out of the Senate since this law's enactment. For the first time, the President will be forced to make … Continue Reading


OP-ED: Obamacare pushing toward mergers

by Mitch McConnell

Five years after its passage, I continue to hear from my constituents about how disastrous Obamacare has been for them and their families. It's caused increased premiums, reduced coverage and choice, and in some cases, the closing of hospitals altogether. Now the announced sale of Kentucky-based Humana, a health insurance company, reveals yet another pitfall of the law. The sale is the inevitable result of Obamacare's push toward consolidation as doctors, hospitals, and insurers merge in respon… Continue Reading
