(CNN)Vice President Mike Pence vowed to continue to press for the repeal and replacement of Obamacare on Friday night, telling a group of conservative students in Washington that the effort “ain’t over by a long shot.”
Pence was speaking at Young America’s Foundation’s annual National Conservative Student Conference a little over a week after the Republican-led Obamacare replacement proposal failed in dramatic fashion in the Senate.
Hours before Pence’s speech, President Trump had left the nation’s capital for a 17-day working vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, and the Senate had left for its August recess.
Yet the vice president assured the conservative audience that the GOP’s seven-year campaign to repeal the Affordable Care Act would continue.
“Last week it was clear that the Senate wasn’t quite ready to keep that promise to the American people when they fell one vote short of moving forward on a bill to repeal and replace this disastrous policy,” Pence said.
