Donald Trump and Mike Pence marked the start of ObamaCare open enrollment Tuesday by railing against the program’s rising consumer costs and pledging to make repealing and replacing President Obama’s signature health care law a first order of business if elected.
Trump, speaking in Valley Forge in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, called the Affordable Care Act a “catastrophe” that needed to be replaced immediately.
“I will ask Congress to convene a special session so we can repeal and replace,” Trump vowed.
The running mates, already trying to energize supporters in the wake of the FBI’s decision to revisit the Hillary Clinton email probe, used Tuesday’s rally to draw attention to another October surprise — the administration admission that premium rates on the ObamaCare exchanges will rise an average 25 percent next year.
Despite Trump’s vow, a “special” session likely would not be necessary to address the law, since Congress already plans to reconvene after the election, and a new Congress would be in session by the time the next president is inaugurated.
