Senator McConnell: Reconciliation Option Open for Repeal of ObamaCare

From Caitlin Huey-Burns:

In an interview with “Fox News Sunday,” Minority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested that the Senate would use the budget reconciliation method, which requires just 51 votes instead of the usual 60, to move forward on repeal. “Reconciliation is available because the Supreme Court has now declared it a tax,” McConnell said, referring to the voting procedure intended to ease the passage of budget and tax deals. “They have unearthed the massive deception that was practiced by the president and the Democrats to constantly deny that it was a tax. . . . And as a tax, it is eligible for reconciliation.”
