(CNN) - Republican leaders Mitch McConnell and John Boehner took aim at the Democrats' health care proposal Wednesday, hours before the president is set to address the matter at a prime time news conference.
Boehner, the house minority leader, laid out his view of several "myths" he expected to hear from Obama: "First he'll say, 'If you like your plan you can keep it,' but clearly under the [plan], the congressional budget office estimates 23 million Americans will be forced out of their private health insurance into a government run plan."
McConnell, the senate minority leader, disputed suggestions Repuplicans are agaisnt reforming the country's health care system.
"I can't find a single member who is not for trying to improve America's healthcare system," the Kentucky Republican said.
Both leaders also expressed concern with what they see as the president's rush to get a bill passed rather than addressing their concerns, and said they were willing to work with the White House on a bill on a slower timetable.
