President Trump: We Must Fulfill our Promise to Repeal Obamacare

On Monday, Vice President Pence and President Trump delivered dueling messages to Congress and the American people.

The President reminded Congress of the solemn vow they made to repeal Obamacare. It was a promise that many of today’s representatives made in their efforts to get elected, and it was the very reason that many of them were sent to Washington, D.C. President Trump told those politicians that it was their duty to fulfill the promises they had made and to find a way to repeal the terrible Obamacare law.

The President then spoke to the American people and gave his word that he would continue to fight for them, no matter what the establishment D.C. sewer threw at him.

“For last seven years Republicans have been united in standing up for Obamacare’s victims. They kept saying it over and over again, every Republican running for office promised immediate relief. So far, Senate Republicans have not done their job in ending the Obamacare nightmare…. We, as a party, must fulfill that promise to repeal and replace, what they’ve been saying for the past 7 years.”

Transcript of VP Pence’s remarks from the White House:

Well, thank you, Dr. Price.  And good afternoon to all.  To the families who are gathered here from all across America, on behalf of the First Family, welcome to the White House.

Since the first day of this administration, President Donald Trump has been working to keep the promises that he made to the American people to rebuild our military, revive our economy.  And this President has worked tirelessly to repeal and replace Obamacare.

President Trump knows that every day Obamacare survives is another day that American families and American businesses struggle. 

As we’ve traveled across the country, we’ve heard firsthand from Americans just like those who stand behind me today, from families who are bearing the cost of skyrocketing premiums and plummeting choices, from families who’ve lost their doctors, lost their insurance, and from families who are starting to lose hope that Congress will ever respond.

But as I’ve told every one of them and people all across this country, thanks to the leadership of President Trump, help is on the way.  President Trump hears you.  He is fighting for you, and he will keep fighting every day until we give the American people access to the world-class health care they deserve.

Tomorrow, the United States Senate will have the opportunity to begin the debate on a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.  And as the President said this morning, after years of talking and campaigning on it, now is the time for Republicans in the Senate to act.  Republicans in the Senate will have in his words a “chance to do the right thing” to keep their promise to the American people and these families and families all across this country.  And this President and the American people are counting on the Senate to act.

So with gratitude for his leadership and his persistence and determination to make American health care great again, it is my high honor and distinct privilege to introduce to these families and to all of you the 45th President of the United States of America — President Donald Trump. 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
