Speaking about the possibility that Senate Republicans may not be able to pass their plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, is saying that action will need to be taken to stabilize insurance markets.
“If my side is unable to agree on an adequate replacement, then some kind of action with regard to private health insurance markets must occur,” McConnell said at a Rotary Club meeting in Kentucky on Thursday.
Senate Republicans had to postpone a vote on their legislation prior to the July 4th recess. President Trump has opened the door to a full repeal of Obamacare with a replacement to come later if the Senate can’t pass the proposed legislation.
McConnell added that “no action is not an alternative.”
“We’ve got the insurance markets imploding all over the country, including in this state,” McConnell said.
