Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) indicated Friday that he would be open to crafting an Obamacare replacement with Republicans, even if they repealed the law without a replacement.
Speaking with New Day’s Alisyn Camerota, Ryan said, “If people in my district are thrown off their health care, and they have nowhere else to go, I think we all have an obligation to try to fix it, try to be a part of the solution.”
Ryan emphasized several times that he believed that the GOP should not repeal the health care law. However, he said: “If they’re able to pass it, and it passes the Senate, and Trump signs it, and people don’t have health care, then I’m going to be willing to have a conversation.”
Ryan’s comments stand in stark contrast to the plans of many top congressional Democrats, who refuse to aid Republicans in replacing Obamacare.
Ryan challenged Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for leadership of House Democrats in November.
