The night after the Senate gets 60 votes to proceed on debating health care reform, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell shares his thoughts on what to expect with CNN's John King.

"We know the American people don't want us to do this," McConnell argued, adding that the bill is "the wrong direction to go." "It drives the cost up for Americans... This bill is a job killer."

King then asks McConnell to explain why health reform was not proposed during the Bush administration. McConnell said that it would be futile because "we didn't have the votes to pass it." He also proposed that the balance of the "failure" of the stimulus package be repealed.

McConnell also responds to a "challenge" made by Dick Durbin for an alternative ("there's nothing on the Internet," Durbin said). "We're not planning on having a 2,000-page bill," McConnell said.
