“WALLACE: I just want to ask, what specifically are you going to do to provide universal coverage to the 30 million people who are uninsured?
MCCONNELL: That is not the issue. The question is, how can you go step by step to improve the American health care system. … We’re not going to turn the American health care system into a Western European system.”

- Context: Mitch McConnell came on Fox News Sunday to discuss the Affordable Care Act. He was asked by Wallace what the Republican plan was to provide insurance to the 30 million uninsured American since he was so adamant about repealing Obama’s health care reforms. After dodging the question Wallace asked him once again, to which he replied that the 30 million uninsured Americans were not an issue.
