McConnell’s comments came one day after the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced that the administration likely wouldn’t meet an important Oct. 1 deadline to get healthcare exchanges set up as part of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.

“ObamaCare is set to become a bureaucratic nightmare,” McConnell said. “It’s already turning into one big mess. It wasn’t hard to see this coming.”

McConnell chided President Obama for recently saying the law is working as it’s supposed to.

“If this is the law working the way it’s suppose to, then this is a very bad law and should be repealed,” McConnell said, adding he hoped Democrats would admit they “made a mistake” by passing the law.

McConnell offered to work with Democrats to repeal the law and start from scratch.
