Speaking to The Washington Post Tuesday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said that it will be a lot easier to repeal Obamacare than replace it, due to Senate procedure. “Repealing it easier and faster because that could be a 51 vote," McCarthy said. "Replacing is going to be 60 votes." Asked when Congress would begin the process of repealing or replacing the law, McCarthy said he doesn’t want to put a time limit to get it done by a certain date. “I want to make sure it gets done right,” he said. “You need to make sure you replace it properly.”
