McConnell on Obamacare: The American People Need Help Now
‘That’s why we started the process of repealing and replacing this partisan law at the beginning of this year. And it’s why we’ll keep working to make this right for American families.’
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the following remarks on Senate floor today regarding the need to repeal and replace Obamacare:
“I appreciated the opportunity to visit with the president yesterday after his impressive speech before Congress. We had a positive discussion about the upcoming legislative agenda.
“One important item we discussed was the way forward on repealing and replacing Obamacare.
Just yesterday our Members came together for a productive discussion on the next steps toward protecting American families from the broken promises of Obamacare.
“Here in Congress, we remain committed to working with the Administration to repeal and replace this failed law. President Trump, in his address to Congress, reaffirmed his own commitment too. He provided important direction on what the path forward should look like as we transition away from Obamacare toward truly patient-centered care.
“We know this transition isn’t going to be easy. Providing relief from the disaster of Obamacare is going to be a challenge. However, the status quo is not sustainable. The American people need help now.
“That’s why we started the process of repealing and replacing this partisan law at the beginning of this year. And it’s why we’ll keep working to make this right for American families. It’s what the people who sent us here have called for, and it remains among our top priorities in the Senate.”
