Last quote by Paul Ryan on Obamacare

Under our Constitution, the power of the purse belongs to Congress, not the executive branch. Today's decision by the Trump administration to tend the appeal of that ruling preserves a monumental affirmation of Congress' authority and the separation of powers.feedback

All quotes by Paul Ryan on Obamacare

So our charge from the electorate – the House of Representatives, we won the popular vote and we ran on an Obamacare repeal and replace plan. This is big stuff, I mean it's two basically entitlements – this is the kind of entitlement we've never done before. The welfare reform that we did in 1996, that program cost $16.5 billion a year – we're talking about hundreds of billion dollars of dollars a year here, so it's difficult to do. We're very close, and it's basically, make good on the promises that were made. It's just going to take us a little time to make good on that.feedback

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
