Vice President Mike Pence spoke in Janesville, Wis., Friday alongside other top Republicans to unite his party around a replacement of Obamacare — a challenge that could define the presidency of Donald Trump.
With both conservative and moderate Republicans shaky on the plan, Pence sought to shore up support by heading to the hometown of House Speaker Paul Ryan to visit the headquarters for a chain of farm supply stores. It was a clear signal that the White House wants other Republicans to fall in line behind the House leadership’s plans to replace the Affordable Care Act.
Pence held a listening session with local business owners and farmers and then told hundreds in an invitation-only audience that the replacement process would begin in “just a matter of days.”
“Let me make you a promise: The Obamacare nightmare is about to end. … Obamacare has failed and Obamacare must go,” Pence said.
