Whom a presidential candidate chooses to be a running mate speaks volumes. When Obama chose Joe Biden as his VP selection, it seemed to confirm what Americans thought about Obama’s judgment. Whenever Biden went before the American public or Congress, his show was one size too big for his mouth.
However, President’s Trump’s judgment in picking someone like Mike Pence was on spot. The US population has gotten to know Pence as a man of integrity, character, and faith. Now they are seeing he is a bulldog as well for the president.
Congress has been playing patty-cake with the whole repeal/replace aspect of Obamacare. Americans know this is a bad healthcare legislation that came from Obama’s liberal support. The Republicans seem hard pressed to get something out before their August recess. Some want to simply repeal then start clean after the break. Others, ok about four, are playing politics with Trump and do not want the current drafts that have come forth.
But V.P. Pence has had it with those of the GOP that are being recalcitrant. This video below shows Pence laying it on the line with the slackers. “Repeal Obamacare” is his warning to them.
The video shows Pence at The National Retail Federation summit in D.C. As he declared to the audience, “Congress needs to do their job, and Congress needs to do their job now!” This main even-keel gentleman is putting the fire to the legislature’s feet to get the Obamacare fiasco handled.
So Pence is not putting up with it any longer. He knows that things need to get moving and his boss expects it. He isn’t even asking them to come up with a new plan before they leave for the term. Simply do what the voters asked for and repeal Obamacare.
Per Mike Pence;
“President Trump and I fully support the majority leader’s decision to move forward with a bill that just repeals Obamacare and gives Congress time, as the president said, to work on a new health care plan that will start with a clean slate,”
But whatever is done, he is adamant they get off their behinds and do their job. Maybe the voters should remember this come 2018 for those seeking re-election then.
Do you feel Pence is right on the money about Congressional inaction?
