WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) today applauded the Ways and Means Committee and the Energy and Commerce Committee for approving the American Health Care Act, the first step in an open, transparent process:
“Two House committees have now approved the American Health Care Act. Next the bill goes to the Budget Committee as part of an open, transparent process.
“We promised to repeal and replace Obamacare, and now we are one step closer to giving families relief from this collapsing law. That means we are one step closer to going from a government-centered system to a patient-centered system, where you have lower costs, more choices, and greater control over your care.
“And—this is so important—we are one step closer to returning power from Washington back to states, to doctors, and to patients. Let’s come together. Let’s get it done.
