ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Vice President Mike Pence visited Kentucky on Saturday to sell the Republican healthcare bill with a vow to "repeal and replace Obamacare once and for all." Pence visited an energy services company in Louisville to tout Trump's plan to gut the Affordable Care Act, calling the Obama-era law a "nightmare." The Republican plan backed by President Trump to overhaul the U.S. healthcare system cleared its first hurdles in Congress on Thursday, but its chances for passage looked uncertain and top Republicans scrambled to bring disgruntled conservatives aboard. In the face of opposition by Democrats, healthcare providers and many conservatives, two House of Representatives committees approved the legislation that would undo much of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, moving it closer to a vote before the full House.
