McConnell talks health care

Kentucky U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell says congress should start over on health care reform if parts of President Barack Obama's plan are rejected by the supreme court.

McConnell appeared on 'CBS This Morning' saying republicans believe Americans want to repeal the whole thing.

"It was a huge huge mistake, the single biggest step in direction of Europeanizing America. I hope the court strikes the whole thing down. Whether they find it unconstitutional or not, its still a big mistake, and we just need to start over and try to get it fixed," said Senator McConnell.

A ruling from the supreme court on the health care law is expected any day now.

McConnell also said that Republicans are ready to try again for a grand bargain with Democrats to attack federal deficits, but he says the president hasn't been willing to deal.
