McConnell once again called for a full repeal of the president’s signature healthcare law, the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.
More aspects of the healthcare law are set to go into effect in 2014. Republicans have warned that workers' hours will get cut so employers can avoid the healthcare mandate.
“When it comes to the implementation of ObamaCare, I fear that some of the worst hit are likely to be small businesses and the Americans who work for them,” McConnell said.
But Democrats have argued the law has already had a positive effect by providing insurance coverage for people with preexisting conditions, women with preventative healthcare needs and people under age 26 who can now stay on their parent’s insurance plan.
