McConnell Committed to Repealing Obamacare

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said he won't back down from the battle to repeal Obamacare, as the impact is starting to be felt across the nation with higher medical costs and shrinking Medicaid and Medicare coverage.

Standing next to a stack of 20,000 pages of health care rules and regulations, which McConnell called a "monument to liberalism" at the Conservative Political Action Conference, said Republicans won't be afraid to fight back against the liberal health care disaster.

In a humorous reference to failing Democrat ideas, he said they haven't had a new one "since the days of the Studebaker." For the unenlightened, the Studebaker was a car from a long time ago that has been long abandoned.

On top of his comedy game, McConnell finished off with a reference to the possibility that Joe Biden or Hillary Rodham Clinton  would run for president in 2016, saying it would be a "rerun of 'The Golden Girls.'"

This is a funny Mitch McConnell I haven't seen too much of. I think his combination of humor and seriousness of the out-of-control liberals and Democrats is the way to go after them; revealing the devastating consequences of their world view.
