After emerging from a closed-door meeting with members of the House Republican conference, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said they recommitted to repeal ObamaCare.
“We’re not going to retrench into our corners put up dividing lines. Today we broke down many of these dividing lines. There’s too much at stake to get bogged down in all of that.”
He said Republicans want this year to be the last Americans have before tax reform is done, meaning that benefits to working families and businesses could be retroactive.
“ObamaCare is a failing law and we are going to get this right,” Speaker Ryan added.
Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., said Democrats who were celebrating the failure of the American Health Care Act did so “prematurely.”
