Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, Ky., reaffirmed his commitment to repealing health reform after a conservative group demanded his resignation over comments McConnell made earlier this week.
On Wednesday, McConnell said he did not want to vote on repealing health care reform
until after the elections in November, according to The Hill. The Restore America’s Voice Foundation said it would call for the senator’s resignation as GOP leader if he didn’t retract his statement.
McConnell’s office told The Hill that the senator is an advocate for complete repeal of the health reform law, he authored the repeal amendment and he forced a repeal vote in February 2011
. In addition, McConnell plans to make March “Repeal ObamaCare Month,” the Hill reported.
