The Ryan Budget (Part1). Rep. Paul Ryan (Rep. WI.) issued his final budget, and it’s one including a full repeal of Obamacare. However, Ryan has not outlined provisions for even a potential replacement, or even given the slightest indication what would happen to those currently enrolled in under the new healthcare law. Ryan says his budget “[C]lears the way for patient-centered reforms that will help increase access, improve quality, and lower costs.”
Three senior Senate Republicans: Burr of North Carolina, Coburn of Oklahoma, and Hatch of Utah have a blueprint for an Obamacare alternative, but leadership of the House is not enthusiastic.
