Biden on Wednesday called on the Senate to take up a sweeping healthcare package to address President Donald Trump’s insistence that it includes no tax increases or cost savings.
The White House has vowed that any bill will be revenue neutral.
The House and Senate must agree to the package before the end of this month, though they have until March to reach agreement.
Biden also said he would call House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to offer a plan on taxes and infrastructure.
But the president’s threats have complicated any efforts to negotiate.
The president told reporters that he would sign a bill that would repeal the Affordable Care Act if he were given the chance.
But he also told reporters at the White House on Tuesday that if he did not get a bill done by the end, he would use executive orders to roll back Obamacare and put it back into place.
