Just got a short blurb from Politico.com that Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell will try to attachment an amendment to a Federal Aviation Administration bill to repeal the health care law.
I don’t know if Mr. McConnell is feeling emboldened by the recent decision in a federal district court in Florida that found the health care law unconstitutional because of the universal mandate that all Americans, with certain exceptions, have health insurance.
On the surface it looks like a move likely to fail given that Democrats have a majority in the Senate. McConnell might want to argue that the Congress “get the bill right” versus allowing the U.S. Supreme Court to do it. Right now the judiciary is split with two jurisdictions having found the health care law unconstitutional and two upholding it.
