Vice President Mike Pence on Saturday said eliminating Obamacare remains the chief priority for the administration, as it works with congressional Republicans to replace the law before the summer is over.
Mr. Pence said Congress has no choice but to scrap the 2010 Affordable Care Act, as insurers pull out of the marketplace and request double-digit premium increases.
“Obamacare is dead. That’s why Obamacare must go,” Mr. Pence said in remarks from Milwaukee. “You’d have to be blinded by partisanship not to believe otherwise, and unfortunately some people are. Democrats in Congress to be exact.”
Republicans are using fast-track budget rules to carve Democrats out of the repeal effort, but they’re struggling to pin down a plan that can satisfy at least 50 members of their narrow Senate majority.
Conservatives want to eliminate as much of the law as they can, though moderates are skittish about waiving regulations that allow insurance to charge sicker people more than healthy ones.
