Speaker Ryan: Congress Will Move Obamacare by End of Quarter

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced his intention to move Obamacare legislation through the House of Representatives “by the end of the first quarter,” at his weekly press conference Thursday.

Asked by reporters upon which model House Republicans would base the Obamacare replacement, Ryan pointed to the plan on the website, better.gop.

Ryan described what Republicans were looking for in their plan: “What we think is you want to have a vibrant individual market, a vibrant employer market. We want Medicaid to work so that states can innovate and so that doctors actually take Medicaid patients. We want Medicare to be solvent.”

Concerns about Republicans’ plans to repeal and replace Obamacare have risen after leaked audio of a private Republican meeting showed that many GOP Congressmen were worried about the consequences of quick action.
