McConnell: ObamaCare Repeal Likely to be Included in Fast-track Budget Process

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday said that language repealing ObamaCare is the most likely choice for a budget reconciliation package expected in the next year.
The tactic allows Senate Republicans to pass legislation with a simple majority instead of 60 votes.
“The use of reconciliation is in active discussion by the Senate and the House,” he told reporters at a press conference touting the Senate’s accomplishments of 2015.
“We are looking at ways in which we would deploy budget reconciliation in a way that [President Obama] might not agree with us but that’s still important to us,” he said.
