mitch-mcconnell11Nov 8, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has specified with full conviction that the first aim of the Republican would be to oppose and amend the health care policies, that was drafted by the Democrats.

He said that his first aim would be to repeal and replace the health spending bill and to end the bailouts. According to him, the best way to do it would be by putting someone in the white house, who would not veto the new Republican policies. Mitch McConnell knows that Barack Obama is most unlikely to approve the repeal, and therefore, it would be the call of the Republicans to assure the repeal. According to him, health care policy was the worst thing, followed by the Financial Services Bill, that he experienced during his term in the Senate. Incoming House Speaker John Boehner has promised that he would do all that is necessary to repeal the health care policies, that would be offered by the fresh senators. However, some Republicans are aware that a complete repeal is quite unlikely as Barack Obama still holds the authority to reject, and the Republicans cannot help it, as they could not make a victory large enough to supersede his decision. Some of these policies are already widely accepted by the people. In this situation, the Republicans would try to reverse some of the provisions, while blocking any funding for new health care provisions.

Mitch McConnell has revealed that it might be a bad time with the president in the white house. Yet he is hopeful about putting a full repeal on his desk and replace it. Republican Paul Ryan said that the full law cannot be repealed before unless a new president is elected in 2013. The reformed policies would be enforced before 2014 in that case.
