Pence: Senate’s Close to Moving Forward With Graham-Cassidy Bill ‘As We Speak’ (The Washington Free Beacon)
Vice President Mike Pence told an Indiana audience the Senate was close to moving forward with the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal "as we speak" Friday, just hours after Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) put the bill in peril by announcing he couldn't support it.
Speaking in Anderson, Indiana, to tout President Donald Trump's push for tax reform, Pence spent a few minutes on health care and sounded optimistic.
"The good news is the Senate's close to moving forward with legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare as we speak," Pence said. "President Trump and I firmly believe that the Graham-Cassidy bill is the right bill at the right time to repeal and replace Obamacare."
