I know, everyone’s all upset about Mitt Romney’s campaign manager Eric Fehrnstrom’s blunder about the mandate being a penalty and not a tax. He should probably be kept off TV since he’s not very good at making his point. But I’m more concerned about what Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said about repealing Obamacare.
“If you thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in this direction, I’d say the odds are still on your side,” McConnell said. “Because it’s a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place.”
In all fairness, he did go on to say he will do whatever he can to get it repealed, including reconciliation. But still, he could try to be a bit more enthusiastic about it. Good grief.
