Vice President Elect Mike Pence spoke to reporters this past Wednesday on Capitol Hill to discuss what will happen once the Trump administration takes over. He made it abundantly clear one of the first marching orders he has is to repeal and repalce Obamacare. Pence said the following,
“The president-elect campaigned all across this country. He gave voice to the frustrations and aspirations of the American people, he laid out an agenda to make America great again, and my message on his behalf today before this Congress and this Senate is that we intend to keep those promises. It will literally begin on day one. Before the end of the day, we do anticipate that the president-elect will be in the Oval Office, taking action to both repeal executive orders and also set into motion through executive action policies to implement promises that were made on the campaign trail.”
Pence also discussed rolling back excessive regulation that is ridiculous and stiffling to economic growth. As well, he indicated they would initiate tax reform for some businesses as well as individuals. Not to mention ending illegal immigration and rebuilding the military.
“The American people had a choice. Our president-elect took his case to the American people to repeal and replace Obamacare, and the American people voted decisively for a better future for health care in this country.”
It is very clear that the Trump administration will be going full steam ahead as soon as the administration steps into office. Attempting to do their best to fix the eight years of upheaval the Obama administration has caused. All with the help of a super majority Republican Congress as well as Senate.
It will be incredibly interesting to see what is to come under the new administration and if they keep the hefty promises they made to the American people.
