Paul Ryan opposes Obamacare deal

by Robert King  |  Published on October 18, 2017

House Speaker Paul Ryan announced his opposition to a deal to stabilize Obamacare’s exchanges shortly after President Trump bashed it.

Ryan’s spokesperson Doug Andres told the Washington Examiner Wednesday the speaker didn’t see anything in the bipartisan deal that changes his view that “the Senate should keep its focus on repeal and replace of Obamacare.”

Ryan’s opposition alongside Trump’s may deal a death blow to the nascent bipartisan deal just announced on Tuesday.

Trump earlier encouraged Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D-Wash., to continue bipartisan talks for a deal that makes cost-sharing reduction payments to Obamacare insurers in exchange for reforms to the law.
