Pence Begins Meetings on Obamacare Wednesday

Vice President-elect Mike Pence will begin meeting with congressional Republicans Wednesday to discuss repealing and replacing Obamacare, on the same day President Barack Obama plans to talk with House Democrats about how to save his legacy legislation, incoming presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday.

“The Affordable Care Act has done some good things, like covering pre-existing conditions,” Conway conceded on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” program. “There are people who have health insurance who didn’t before. But the fact is many Americans feel harmed by the Affordable Care Act.”

The healthcare law, she said, resulted in Republicans gaining seats on both the state and local level, as Americans become more angry and upset over Obamacare.

“There are many people who say, ‘I thought was going to be covered, but all I got was two 25-hour jobs a week,'” said Conway. “There are people paying higher premiums. We have fewer choices, lower quality, less access, higher costs. That wasn’t supposed to be health reform.”

There are several changes that could come into play, including allowing customers to buy insurance across state lines, and allowing for the expansion of health savings amounts, said Conway. full story
