Last quote by Paul Ryan on Obamacare

If moving forward requires a conference committee, that is something the House is willing to do. The reality, however, is that repealing and replacing Obamacare still ultimately requires the Senate to produce 51 votes for an actual plan. The House remains committed to finding a solution and working with our Senate colleagues, but the burden remains on the Senate to demonstrate that it is capable of passing something that keeps our promise, as the House has already done. Until the Senate can do that, we will never be able to develop a conference report that becomes law.feedback

All quotes by Paul Ryan on Obamacare

The whole idea of Obamacare is the people ... who are healthy pay for the people who are sick; it's not working and that's why it's in a death spiral.feedback

What I worry about Norah is that if we don't do this, then he'll just go work with Democrats to try and change Obamacare, and that's hardly a conservative thing.feedback

What I worry about, Norah, is that if we don't do this, he'll (Mr. Trump) just go work with Democrats to try and change Obamacare and that's hardly a conservative thing. If this Republican Congress allows the perfect to be the enemy of the good, I worry we'll push the president into working with Dems.feedback

I understand the president's frustration. I share frustration. About 90 percent of our conference is for this bill to repeal and replace Obamacare and about 10 percent are not. And that's not enough to pass a bill. This is too big of an issue to not get right, and so I'm not going to put some kind of artificial deadline on saving the American health-care system from oncoming collapse. Obamacare is the law of the land. We came really close today, but we came up short. I don't want that to happen.feedback

The Democrats aren't for repealing Obamacare. We are. I'm not going to put some kind of artificial deadline. You all know that he does that in various forms, including Twitter. I understand the president's frustration. What I encourage our members to do is keep talking until we get this done, to pass this.feedback

We have come a long way in our country when the speaker of one party urges a president NOT to work with the other party to solve a problem. The Democrats aren't for repealing Obamacare. We are. We work with Democrats all the time ... but I don't think it's a stretch of the mind to suggest that the Democrats disagree with us about repealing Obamacare. So if we're going to do what we said we would do and repeal and replace Obamacare, something tells me the Democrats are not going to help us.feedback

The worst is yet to come with Obamacare. Do we try to prop it up? It is so fundamentally flawed, I don't know if that is possible.feedback

Yes, this does make tax reform more difficult. But it doesn't in any way make it impossible. We will proceed with tax reform. Obamacare taxes stay with Obamacare. We're going to go fix the rest of the tax code. He's not going to turn his back on his core principles. I think his core principles have broad admiration in both parties.feedback

I'm really proud of the bill that we produced. It would make a dramatic improvement in our health care system and provide relief to people hurting under Obamacare. And what's probably most troubling is the worst is yet to come with Obamacare.feedback

ObamaCare will remain the law of the land until it's replaced. We're going to be living with ObamaCare for the foreseeable future. We came really close today, but we came up short. I spoke to the president a little while ago and I told him the best thing I think to do was to pull this bill, and he agreed with that. I will not sugarcoat this; this is a disappointing day for us. Doing big things is hard. The president gave his all in this effort. He did everything he possibly could to help people see the opportunity we have with this bill. He really has been fantastic.feedback

I think the losers are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, because they own Obamacare. They 100 percent own it.feedback

The bottom line is, we made a promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, and we are going to keep our word.feedback

Our whole thing is we don't want to load up our bill in such a way that it doesn't even get considered in the Senate. Then we've lost our one chance with this one tool we have. This is the one chance we have to actually repeal Obamacare and replace it with the stuff we believe in. The president is all in, we all made this promise, and that's why I'm confident.feedback

Everybody running for the Congress and the House, everybody running for the Senate, and the president himself, said to the American people, You give us this chance, this responsibility, this opportunity, with a Republican president, with a Republican Senate, a Republican House, and we will repeal and replace Obamacare. The president was really clear, he laid it on the lines for everybody: We made a promise, now is the time to keep that promise, and we need to keep our promise and the people will reward us. If we don't keep our promise, it will be very hard to manage this.feedback

President Trump was here to do what he does best, and that is to close the deal. He is all in and we are all in to end this Obamacare nightmare. This is our chance and this is our moment. It's a big moment. And I think our members are beginning to appreciate just what kind of a rendezvous with destiny we have right here.feedback

With this amendment, we accelerate tax relief, give states additional options to spend health care dollars how they choose, strengthen what were already substantial pro-life protections, and ensure there are necessary resources to help older Americans and the disabled. With the president's leadership and support for this historic legislation, we are now one step closer to keeping our promise to the American people and ending the Obamacare nightmare.feedback
