Vice President Mike Pence is fed-up with Obamacare — and he’s threatening to take away Congress’ special healthcare, giving them all a taste of how destructive the “Affordable Care Act” really is.
On Wednesday, in an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, Pence was asked specifically about how Congress is exempt from the Obamacare.
Carlson asked, “Why should Members of Congress and their staffs have a better deal, not subject to the same rules as everybody else is?”
The Vice President responded with this:
“That’s pretty typical of Washington, isn’t it? You, more often than not, see one set of rules for the American people and another set of rules for the political class here in our nation’s capital. but as we move forward, the point is that whether the president makes a decision, it would be his decision whether to rescind that special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs.”
He went on to say, “What we want is a health care system that works for all of the American people.” Pence explained that one element of health care reform should be cheaper coverage. “I think the primary goal first is to give people freedom over their own health care choices again,” said Pence.
Pence said that the Trump administration intends to keep its promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Watch the interview here:
