Vice President Mike Pence Endorses Ted Cruz 'Consumer Choice' Amendment and Straight Repeal of Obamacare

Pence traveled to GOP-friendly Kentucky on Wednesday to say he wanted to "turn up the heat" on Republicans to fulfill their pledge to uproot Obama's health care law. "Rand Paul will do the right thing together and we will pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare", he said.

Mike Pence's spokesman said Wednesday that the vice president was "not aware" of any meetings between Donald Trump Jr. and any Russian officials.

Paul, a tea party favorite and former presidential candidate who helped to block an earlier Senate vote on health care, sounded unpersuaded by Pence's comments.

"The president and I believe when the time comes Sen".

Pence will meet with small business owners and then give remarks about repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Vice President Mike Pence said that the allowing consumers to choose more affordable and flexible healthcare plans through the Cruz consumer choice amendment embodies the very essence of freedom. Pence heard from several small business operators who complained that the existing law has burdened them and their employees with skyrocketing costs and limited coverage.

"There is no flawless solution, there is no one size that will fit all for everyone, but give us that local control and the ability to make a change, that's all we're asking for", Bevin said. A study by the Commonwealth Fund and George Washington University found that Kentucky would lose 32,100 jobs in health care and other fields by 2026. 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.

"He was not aware of the meeting". The adviser said that people on Pence's staff have not lawyered up - as far as the source knew - but added, "man, what a stressful deal".
