Obamacare Repeal Pressure Building on Mitch McConnell, John Boehner

Mitch McConnell is days, perhaps weeks, away from knowing whether he could be leading a GOP-controlled Senate next year, but he’s already getting a taste of what it might be like for Republicans to run both chambers of Congress.

Conservatives started calling on Mr. McConnell last week to assure them that he is committed to his previous pledge of doing everything in his power to end Obamacare after he tried to downplay expectations of an outright repeal over the next two years.

“Reports say GOP Senate Leader Mitch McConnell is planning to walk away from his commitment to repeal Obamacare, ‘root and branch,’ as he promised,” the conservative group ForAmerica said in a Facebook post. “Americans need to know the truth! Is repealing Obamacare a McConnell priority or just an empty campaign promise? CALL his office now and tell him to refute the charge and stand with conservatives!”
