House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-WI, said Republicans are just about to put the “finishing touches” on their latest effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
“We’re in the midst of negotiating sort of finishing touches, because our members want to make sure that we lower premiums,” Ryan said while answering questions during a trip to London.
“We’re very close, and it’s basically, make good on the promises that were made,” Ryan added of the status of their repeal and replace plan.
“It’s just going to take us a little time to make good on that,” he continued.
Ryan also said it would be better if Republicans passed their health care plan before they move on to tax reform because the Obamacare taxes would be repealed.
“Healthcare is not dead,” Ryan said. “We’re still working on it.”
