ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) -- It's on his to-do list, but U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell admits the odds are against lawmakers wanting to gut the health care law championed by President Barack Obama.

The Kentucky Republican talked about the law to about 50 people at Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown Monday,

WHAS-TV reports that McConnell said it's hard to undo something of the magnitude of the health care law. As a result, McConnell says the odds are still on the side of people who think it's a good idea.

He said it's much harder to undo something than to stop it in the first place.

Last week the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law's mandate that individuals buy health insurance or face a penalty.
