Lots of Americans feel let down by the fact that Republicans haven’t been able to repeal Obamacare. Especially because they promised to do so for so many years.
There is some good news, however. According to Vice President Mike Pence, the fight isn’t over.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Mike Pence: Healthcare reform fight ‘ain’t over by a long shot’
Vice President Mike Pence said on Thursday that healthcare reform “ain’t over by a long shot.”
Pence spoke about the need for both healthcare and tax reform at the Tennessee GOP 2017 Statesmen’s Dinner at Music City Center in Nashville. While healthcare reform stalled in the Senate last week, Pence remains optimistic the GOP can revisit the issue before the end of the year.
“This ain’t over by a long shot…we won’t rest until we end the Obamacare nightmare once and for all,” Pence said, according to a press pool report. “We’re going to keep fighting until Congress sends a bill to his desk to repeal and replace Obamacare.”
Pence echoed the sentiment of his boss, President Trump, who has taken to Twitter to pressure Senate Republicans not to give up on healthcare reform.
Lots of people have lost trust in Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, but Mike Pence is a different story.
