It seems that the new Senate Majority Leader failed to replace Senate Parliamentarian MacDonough when he "took control" of the Senate after the 2014 elections. Now, MacDonough claims that Obamacare, which the Democrats had to pass using a technique called reconciliation with less than 60 votes, cannot be repealed through the same mechanism.
But McConnell doesn't want to do it:
In other words, McConnell doesn't want to repeal it. He just wants to run on repealing it. Forever.
And that means he's either betrayed the people who elected him, or is being blackmailed with NSA intercept data. Or both; it could easily be both.
Not that this is news. It's just nice to point out the details occasionally.
