Paul Ryan Says Health Care ‘Legislating Is Going To Be Done This Year’

Matt Shuham, February 7, 2017 – TPM:

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Tuesday said that legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act would be completed this year.”

(Emphasis mine.)

Paul Ryan, December 4, 2016  – TheHill:

Repealing Obamacare will be the first priority of congressional Republicans when Donald Trump takes office in January, House Speaker Paul Ryan told CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

Though he hadn’t previously set a timetable, “first priority” implies soon.

The GOP has run smack into reality. It’s going to be a long year if that’s the first priority, and no legislation is forthcoming.
