McConnell Offers Amendment to Repeal ObamaCare

By on 2.1.11 | 2:28PM

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has offered a bill to repeal the national health care law as an amendment to a bill concerning the Federal Aviation Administration, and urged its "immediate consideration."

It's not yet clear when the actual vote will happen, but it could be shortly. The language is the same as the repeal bill that passed the House earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow is introducing an amendment to repeal the unpopular 1099 provision. That allows Democrats who will vote against repeal to argue that they're still willing to make changes to the national health care law.
