Vice President Mike Pence struck an optimistic tone Monday to say “we are close” to getting a deal on healthcare.
“Every Republican in the House and the Senate as well as this administration promised the American people we would repeal and replace Obamacare,” Pence said on conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham’s radio show. “The Senate is within weeks of being able to deliver on that promise.”
Ingraham brought up Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s comments last week in which he said Republicans would have to work with Democrats to fix Obamacare insurance markets if the Senate health bill doesn’t get passed.
Pence said a deal needs to happen soon as he believes the law is collapsing.
