The top-ranking Republican in the Senate calls the Obama health care law the first step in "Europeanizing America" and says Congress should "start over" if the system is ruled invalid by the Supreme Court.
Kentucky's Sen. Mitch McConnell says Republicans believe Americans want to "repeal the whole thing."
McConnell tells "CBS This Morning" the GOP is ready to try again for a "grand bargain" with Democrats to federal deficits.
But he charges that President Barack Obama hasn't been willing to deal and says, "I understand full well that our friends on the other side live every day to raise taxes."
McConnell says Congress must find a way to slash the cost of entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, which he says are on an "unsustainable path" toward bankruptcy.
