WASHINGTON--GOP Senate nominee Rep. Mark Steven Kirk (R-Ill.) said if President Obama signs a health insurance reform bill into law--and if he is elected to the Senate--he would "lead the effort" for its repeal.
"As your senator I would lead the effort to repeal this bill," Kirk said.
The Obama White House roared back at Kirk on Wednesday. White House Senior advisor David Axelrod told the Chicago Sun-Times, "Given the great challenges America, and families across Illinois face today, the last thing we need is another Republican Senator in Washington who is more focused on tearing down the President than he is on solving problems."
