Pence Counterprograms Obama
After Obama announced he was hitting the Hill this morning to defend Obamacare, Vice President-elect Pence suddenly decided to head to the Capitol as well. He'll speak separately to Senate Rs and House Rs.
What We're Hearing: An aide says the gist of Pence's Obamacare message will be: "This thing is a disaster. Costs are going up — it's collapsing. This is a promise we made to voters, and it can't wait. They want to see action. The sooner you get it done, the sooner we'll sign it."
