Testifying before Congress today, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price pledged to uphold the Affordable Care Act (ACA, or Obamacare) so long as it is “the law of the land,” including the individual and employer mandates.

“So long as the law is on the books, we at the department are obliged to uphold the law,” he said.

According to reports, however, Dr. Price skipped around questions about funding, which Republicans in Congress could cut or his department could play games with.

This came amid reports that Republicans in the House of Representatives are conferring on ways to revive the American Health Care Act (AHCA) that was withdrawn from a vote this past Friday and which would “repeal and replace” the ACA if passed.
