Mike Pence pressures Senate to act on healthcare by summer

June 5, 2017

Vice President Mike Pence called on Congress on Saturday to pass Obamacare repeal by summer after some senators expressed doubt healthcare reform would get done this year at all.

“This Congress must repeal and replace Obamacare,” Pence said during Sen. Joni Ernst’s “Roast and Ride” event in Boone, Iowa. The two rode into the event riding motorcycles.

Pence’s comments come a day or so after Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., told a local radio station that he didn’t think healthcare reform could get done this year, let alone before Congress’ month-long August recess that starts at the end of July.

Pence detailed the problems with Iowa’s beleaguered individual market, which is for people who don’t get insurance through work.
