McConnell: Republicans Will Roll Back Obamacare

The Hill: “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday said he does not have a timeline for using reconciliation to repeal ObamaCare, but indicated that Republicans would look to roll back as much of the law as they can.”

“’I don’t have a time to give you, but we’re certainly going to consider using budget reconciliation for repealing as much of ObamaCare as is reconcilable,’ McConnell told reporters. ‘There’re certain rules that have to be applied to what is reconcilable and that’s an active consideration, as you can imagine.’”

“The Republican budget sets a deadline of July 24, just 10 days away, for the relevant committees to come up with a reconciliation plan. But even after that deadline, the Senate could still use reconciliation until the end of the congressional session in 2016.”
