MIKE PENCE: For Healthcare Reform, Repeal NOW And Replace LATER

If they can’t make it over the finish line, Mike Pence wants the GOP to get the repeal done, as they promised voters they would.

He’s not the only one who feels that way.

Newsmax has the story:

Vice President Mike Pence said congressional Republicans should pass a repeal only” bill if they can’t reach an agreement on legislation to replace Obamacare.”

In an interview Monday on “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” Pence said President Donald Trump has “made it very clear.”

“We believe if they can’t pass this carefully crafted repeal and replace bill — do those two things simultaneously — we ought to just repeal only,” he said. “And then have enough time built into that legislation to craft replacement legislation in a way that’s orderly and allows states to adjust to different changes in Medicaid over maybe a three or four-year window that allows the insurance markets to evolve.”

While some Republicans are still trying to push the current senate bill, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are pushing something that has been a point of contention since the healthcare debate started, selling insurance across state lines:

… In his radio interview, Pence also endorsed an amendment being heavily promoted by Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah that’ would give insurance companies the freedom to sell any kind of healthcare plan they want, as long as they also sell at least one plan that qualifies under the regulatory requirements of the Affordable Care Act.

One could only hope the “conservatives” hold strong and keep the rest of the party at bay while advancing a real repeal.
