Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) on Saturday charged that Democrats' two most-celebrated healthcare reforms are already in jeopardy because of the law's "ineffective" language.

That newly passed bill, among other things, mandates an end to discrimination against children with pre-existing conditions, and permits young adults to remain on their parents' health plans until age 26. Democrats and Republicans alike have long supported both ideas, but McConnell noted in his party's radio address on Saturday that neither reform may take effect until 2014, despite Democrats' insistence that both provisions begin immediately.
