White House budget director, Mick Mulvaney on Sunday said the Senate should vote on repealing Obamacare before anything else.
Mulvaney said it’s official White House policy that the Senate shouldn’t hold a vote on another issue, until it votes again on health care.
“In the White House’s view, they can’t move on in the Senate,” Mulvaney said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“You can’t promise folks you’re going to do something for seven years, and then not do it.”
“The special exemption dealt with the employer contribution, how much your employer — when you’re a member of Congress, that’s the federal government — can contribute to your coverage. And that’s the rule that the president was talking about in his tweet yesterday,” Mulvaney explained.
Trump in a series of tweets had urged the Republican senators to not “give up” on repealing Obamacare.
