Senator Calls Obama’s Strongarm Healthcare Bill “Completely Reckless, Completely Irresponsible”

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor Thursday regarding the importance of getting it right on health care reform: “Senators on both sides acknowledge that the health care bill we’re considering is among the most significant pieces of legislation any of us will ever consider. So it stands to reason that we’d devote significant time and attention to it. Indeed, some would argue that we should spend more time and attention on this bill than most – if not every – previous bill we’ve considered. The Majority disagrees. Why? Because this bill has become a political nightmare for them. They know Americans overwhelmingly oppose it, so they want to get it over with.”
