New Speaker Paul Ryan pledged that the House will fi­nally come up with a re­place­ment for Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s health­care law.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

Repub­li­cans have promised but failed to co­a­lesce around a new plan since the Af­ford­able Care Act be­came law more than five years ago. “We think this prob­lem is so ur­gent that, next year, we are go­ing to un­veil a plan to re­place ev­ery word of Oba­macare,” Ryan said. Al­though short on new ideas and lack­ing specifics, the Wis­con­sin Repub­li­can’s speech made clear that he has no de­sire to hang back and play a sup­port­ing role to the GOP’s pres­i­den­tial nominee next year. Ryan was the party’s vice pres­i­den­tial nominee in 2012.
