After meeting with the House Republican leadership Wednesday morning, Vice President-elect Mike Pence said of the new administration, “The first order of business is to repeal and replace Obamacare.” Throughout the campaign, President-elect Trump promised to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
Pence cited Trump’s electoral mandate in his remarks, “The American people had a choice…Our President-elect took his case to the American people to repeal and replace Obamacare and the American people voted decisively for a better future for health care in this country.”
“We are 16 days away from business as usual in Washington, D.C. We’re going to be in the promise-keeping business,” Pence said before citing numerous Obama administration’s broken promises.
“We were told that if you like your doctor, you can keep it. Not true. We were told if you like your health insurance, you can keep it. Not true.”
In many battleground states, health insurance premiums shot up this year, another fact Pence noted in his remarks.
“Obamacare has worked a hardship on American families, on American businesses, and in a very simple conclusion the American people have sent new leadership here because Obamacare has failed,” Pence concluded.
