McConnell to Offer ObamaCare Repeal Today, as Amendment

By on 2.1.11 | 1:17PM

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will introduce the bill to repeal the national health care law today, as an amendment to the Federal Aviation Administration bill.

"Everybody will have an opportunity to go on record," McConnell just said at a news conference.

A Senate GOP source tells me at this moment it's unclear whether the actual vote will occur today, which is largely dependent on how Democrats react. They could immediately move to table the amendment, it would set up a quick vote.

All 47 GOP Senators are expected to vote for the repeal measure, but it's unlikely that it would attract any Democratic support, let alone enough to reach 60 votes.
