Rep. Paul Ryan gave a single answer on Obamacare repeal
During an interview on Meet The Press, Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) gave a single answer on Obamacare repeal that revealed why the attack on the ACA would be a disaster for the American people.
Ryan’s answered, “Yeah, somewhere along the line there was confusion that we were going to take the Obamacare architecture and, you know, tinker at the margins and repair it. You can’t. It is a collapsing law. Five states have one plan to choose from. A third of all the counties in America have one plan to choose from. 70 percent of all counties in America have one or two plans to choose from. That’s a monopoly or a duopoly. Premiums are going up double digits. Deductibles are so high, doesn’t even feel like you have health insurance. So the law is literally in the middle of a collapse. And it’s our duty as representatives of our constituents, of the American people, to step in front of this crash and rescue people from this collapsing health care system, and replace it with something better.”
