OXON HILL, Md. (March 15, 2013)—U.S. Senate Republican leader U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is vowing to repeal President Barack Obama's sweeping health care law.
McConnell spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference next to a tower of 20,000 pages of health care rules and regulations, which he called a "monument to liberalism."
He said Republicans will not back down from the fight.
McConnell, who faces re-election next year, said Republicans need to rebound from election losses last year and "punch back."
He said Democrats haven't had a new idea "since the days of the Studebaker."
He compares the possibility of Democrats nominating Hillary Rodham Clinton or Joe Biden for president in 2016 to, quote, a "rerun of 'The Golden Girls.'"
