Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., described the push to pass Obamacare as an "exercise in sleaze" as he called for Mitt Romney to "repeal and replace" the law as president.

"It was the sleaziest process I have ever seen in my years as a United States Senator," McCain said of the effort to get Obamacare through Congress. "That was an exercise in sleaze and we've got to do away with it," he added, recalling the Cornhusker Kickback and other efforts.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, speaking at the same RNC State Chairmen's meeting where McCain was speaking with Romney, said that Obama must lose reelection before he "ends our way of life as we know it."

A new Wall Street Journal poll shows 49 percent of Americans in favor of "repealing and replacing" Obamacare.
