Quote"If we can repeal part of Obamacare as part of a tax bill, and have a tax bill that is still a good tax bill that can pass, that's great. If it becomes an impediment to getting the best tax bill we can, then we're OK with taking it out." — White House budget director Mick Mulvaney to CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union"
