Vice President-elect Mike Pence told House Republicans Wednesday that Donald Trump may sign executive orders that would help repeal pieces of Obamacare, but implored GOP lawmakers in a closed meeting to tell their constituents "the truth": That Democrats are still to blame for any of the law's failures. reports that, it's a dual-track message: Pence and the president-elect want to show that they're moving toward repeal, but also want to continue to lay the responsibility for any problems at Democrats' feet. President Barack Obama, meanwhile, huddled with Hill Democrats to discuss their own strategy to protect his signature health care law.

“We’re working out right now with the White House staff and in concert with legislative leadership a two-track approach to ensuring that it is an orderly transition as the president-elect has directed," Pence said of the repeal effort. “We’re talking about people’s lives. We’re talking about families. But we are also talking about a policy that has been a failure virtually since its inception.”
