Senator Mitch McConnell - Press Releases Thursday, December 17, 2009 And heres the most outrageous part: at the end of this rush, they want us to vote on a bill that no one outside the Majority Leaders conference room has even seen. Thats right. The final bill well vote on isnt even the one weve had on the floor. Its the deal Democrat leaders have been trying to work out in private WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor Thursday regarding the importance of getting it right on health care reform: Senators on both sides acknowledge that the health care bill were considering is among the most significant pieces of legislation any of us will ever consider. So it stands to reason that wed devote significant time and attention to it. Indeed, some would argue that we should spend more time and attention on this bill than most if not every previous bill weve considered. The Majority disagrees. Why? Because this bill has become a political nightmare for them.
