LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Too little. Too late.

That's what U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell says about President Obama's apology for promising Americans that if they like their health insurance, they can keep it under the Affordable Care Act.

During a news conference in Louisville Tuesday morning, McConnell pointed out that some 280,000 Kentuckians have already lost their policies under Obamacare. He says an apology is not enough.

"This was a chaotic mistake," he said. "The single worst piece of legislation that's been passed in modern times. And I think it's a little late for an apology. What the American people would like is a little action here; to get rid of this thing and to start over."

McConnell also blasted Ky. Gov. Steve Beshear's embrace of Obamacare, saying it could deal a crushing blow to the state's budget. He challenged his Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes' position on the health care law.

We'll have more on McConnell's comments and reaction on WDRB News at 4.
