Conservatives are waiting with bated breath for President-elect Donald Trump’s first day in the White House. Eight years of Obama’s failed policies need to be undone, and many are wondering where he’ll begin.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence just revealed one of the things Trump will be doing as soon as he gets into office, and it’s great news for anyone who wants to see Obama’s legacy undone.
“Decisions have been made by the president-elect that he wants to focus out of the gate on repealing Obamacare,” Pence said in an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” this past weekend (via The Hill). “And beginning the process of replacing Obamacare with the kind of free-market solutions that he campaigned on.”
Pence’s remarks aren’t just a confirmation that the administration plans to tackle Obamacare right from the start. By only using the word “repealing,” Vice President-elect Pence seems to have quashed any hope for liberals that the incoming administration would choose to amend it instead.
Even President-elect Trump has said, “Either Obamacare will be amended, or repealed and replaced,” leaving some hope for the left that it would be left intact. While Trump plans to keep two of the more popular parts of the sweeping legislation — letting adult children stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26 and coverage for pre-existing conditions — Pence’s language seemed to indicate that amendment was off the table.
Good. Obamacare has been one of the most disastrous pieces of legislation ever introduced for American families, leaving millions without coverage or unable to afford coverage. It’s created a nightmare bureaucracy and has stifled competition.
Trump’s plan to reduce red tape and allow competition across state lines would be an amazing boost for families across the nation. The sooner it happens, the better — especially if it’s on day one. Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter if you agree.
