Vice President Mike Pence, at a stop in Louisville, Ky., vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, even as hundreds of people demonstrated outside in support of the federal health law.
“Obamacare has failed the people of Kentucky, Obamacare has failed the people of America and Obamacare must go!” Pence declared Friday to an enthusiastic invitation-only audience of more than 100.
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, also a Republican opponent of the federal health law, introduced his “dear friend” Pence and said he shared his views on the law that has brought health coverage to more than half a million Kentuckians.
“Obamacare is a disaster,” Bevin said. “It needs to be repealed. It needs to be replaced!”
