Minority leader: Odds long to undo health care law

I have predicted that this will happen. Neither the GOP or the Democrats will lift a finger to repeal Obamacare. Once a law is in place, it is extremely difficult to remove. It is likely that Congress will stop funding the program. However, this will only give the opportunity for the next Democrat to come in and screw it up. We have to wait and see what Romney will do if he become the next president. If the GOP gain the majority of both chambers of the House, we will see if they have the guts to repeal it. Only time will tell.

(AP) ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky.-- It's on his to-do list, but U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says the odds are against repealing the health care law championed by President Barack Obama.

The Kentucky Republican said Monday it's hard to unravel something of the magnitude of the 2,700-page health care law, WHAS-TV (http://bit.ly/LSUtqX ) reports.

"If you thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in this direction, I'd say the odds are still on your side," McConnell said. "Because it's a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place."
