Pence: We Will Repeal Obamacare Before End of Summer

The Vice President said that Congress and the president would repeal President Obama’s signature health care law soon.

Vice President Mike Pence said to the National Association of Manufacturers on Tuesday that the Trump administration and Congress would repeal Obamacare “before this summer is over.”

“President Donald Trump and this Congress will keep their promise to the American people and we will repeal and replace Obamacare,” Pence promised.

The vice president said that the Trump administration would rescue the United States from the “failed” 2010 law.

Pence then detailed the challenges facing businesses and Americans as Obamacare cements itself as the law of the land. Rising premiums, diminishing choices, and falling business flexibility have plagued Americans, according to Pence.

House Republicans passed a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare in May, and the Senate has been working on its own bill. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans hope to schedule a vote in the next few weeks.
