That statement is in response to McConnell's campaign arguing that Kentuckians should be allowed to keep the state exchange even while Obamacare is totally removed.

"If Obamacare is repealed, Kentucky should decide for itself whether to keep Kynect or set upa different marketplace," McConnell campaign spokeswoman Allison Moore told TPM on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the editorial board of the Lexington Herald-Leader, one of the biggest newspapers in Kentucky, strongly criticized McConnell for his new statements on Kynect as it relates to Obamacare.

"Repeal the federal law, which McConnell calls 'Obamacare,' and the state exchange would collapse," the editorial said.
