Blunt: No ‘Immediate Pressure’ To Act If Obamacare Is Struck

Ahead of the Supreme Court ruling, Senate Republican Conference Vice Chair Roy Blunt (R-MO) on Thursday downplayed the prospect that his party will act on health care in the near term.

“The immediate pressure to do something is not there,” he told MSNBC.

The remarks are in keeping with the GOP’s latest shift against replacing the law if it goes down.
