Majority leader Mitch McConnell has said that the party’s representatives will swiftly repeal the healthcare legislation, which has guaranteed care to millions of people. He made the statement after it emerged that Donald Trump would be the new President of the United States, and that the Republicans had kept control of the legislature.
“It’s pretty high on our agenda as you know,” Mr McConell said in the aftermath of the election, according to Politico. “I would be shocked if we didn’t move forward and keep our commitment to the American people.”
Mr McConnell said that Obamacare was the “single worst piece of legislation” from the first two years of the Obama administration.
Donald Trump made the repealing of Obamacare one of his central policy commitments, and has said that he would look to carry it through in the early days after he takes office.
