From the June 22 edition of Fox News' Special Report with Bret Baier:
MOLLIE HEMINGWAY: It's an imperfect bill that comes out of an imperfect process. But when you think about what the option really is, you have a bill that gets rid of the individual mandate, gets rid of the employer mandate, that phases out Medicaid expansion, cuts taxes and a lot depends on what happens in the future but it builds a case for getting rid of Obamacare structurally over the long term. If your option is that or nothing, that's actually not the worst option that you have. At the same time, it's a bill that does a little bit more in reaching out to the moderates than the house bill did in that it does phase these things out a little more gently, provides some money upfront. So the best way to understand Mitch McConnell I think is that he picks the most conservative, politically plausible position, and that's what this bill might be.
