Vice President Mike Pence had some strong words for Republicans on Saturday during the Ohio Republican Party’s 2017 State Dinner in Columbus. Republicans are now in control of the House and Senate, but have not yet been able to repeal and replace- or even just repeal- Obamacare, something they have been promising for years.
“The opposition has been universal. It’s been incredible, when you think about it. The Democrats who gave us the failed policies of Obamacare, won’t- any one of them– lift a finger to help the American people out from under its burden.”
“But the Republicans have soldiered on to keep their promise to the American people.We’ve been making some progress. But a few days ago…we learned that a few Republicans in the Senate weren’t quite ready to move forward on legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare.”
“Some people around the country harbor the belief that the Democrats will help us clean up the mess they made. But, as I said the the president said this morning, Republican senators must step up to the plate after seven years and vote to repeal and replace Obamacare.”
President Trump issued a call to Republicans to work together to fix American health care earlier that day:
The Republican Senators must step up to the plate and, after 7 years, vote to Repeal and Replace. Next, Tax Reform and Infrastructure. WIN!

We have enough problems with the Democrats. Republicans must get together and sort out health care once and for all. It will not be easy, but now is the time and our country needs them more than ever. As President Trump said earlier today:
If Republicans don’t Repeal and Replace the disastrous ObamaCare, the repercussions will be far greater than any of them understand!

Share if you stand with President Trump and VP Pence and urge Senate Republicans to get rid of Obamacare ONCE and FOR ALL!
