Now let's see. What else can they think of to attach to this highway bill? This kind of thing reminds me of nothing more than blackmail.

WASHINGTON — Senate Republican leaders announced plans Friday to use a must-pass highway bill to try to overturn President Barack Obama's health care law, in the latest GOP assault on "Obamacare."

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said on the Senate floor "nearly every Republican wants" a full repeal of the law, and he introduced an amendment to the highway bill to do just that. A vote was set for Sunday.

The move was met with immediate derision from Democrats in the wake of last month's Supreme Court ruling upholding central elements of the law. - America's Trucking Newspaper
