Ryan calls for 'incremental' health reforms after failure of ObamaCare repeal

Source: The Hill




BY PETER SULLIVAN - 02/13/18 12:09 PM EST

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is calling for "incremental" health-care reform after the Senate failed to pass an ObamaCare replacement bill last year.

Asked on Fox Business on Tuesday if lawmakers will try again to pass an ObamaCare repeal legislation this year, Ryan pointed to incremental changes.

"Well, I think there are a lot of things we can do kind of incrementally," Ryan said.

The comments are an acknowledgment that there is no apparent path forward for a large-scale ObamaCare replacement or entitlement reform bill this year in the Senate, where Republicans now have a one-seat majority.

2. Ryan, you cashed in all your chits on the Tax Scam

 

Now, the 1% will need to start paying their goddamn share to cover essential services.

Ryan does not have any stroke left, except for the one in his brain, which he will be getting within the next few weeks.

5. Paul Ryan would screw over his own mother.......

Of her Medicare if it meant saving face.

Lyjn' Ryan has sold his soul. He is no Catholic, let alone a Christ follower because he has NO PLAN in store to cover all Americans with Health Insurance.

Shit! His plan for Medicare is to hand out coupons to seniors for X amount of money to have Seniors go out and buy Health Insurance on the Private Market. Throw them to the wolves for bare bones coverage. Just like BEFORE the ACA became law.

6. They couldn't get it repealed, so they're going to repeal it by bits & pieces.

First, the mandatory provision was taken away. The funding for the subsidies was put into question. Now this.

Then they'll move on to Social Security and Medicare.

They have a tight deadline. They know their time is short before the mid-terms or before Trump is impeached. As McConnell said, Trump will sign anything they put in front of him.

8. Hey Ryan here's someone that incrementally wants to have debate with you and what you want to do

his Mother, Father, and Son, himself and millions of others human beings that you want to incrementally fuck us out of health care ------so that you can privatize Medicare and Medicaid-------------FUCK YOU asshole, we are coming....................November cannot get here fast enough...............asshole.......

Quote from Paul "ayn rand" Ryan

“So what are we doing?” Ryan continued. “We're going back and doing it incrementally. Going back at incremental health-care reform and other entitlement reforms so we can chip away at this problem.”

12. Thanks for posting these ads.

Just sent him $10.

I like the line, "Hey Paul Ryan, you come work the iron and I'll go to DC."


Can you imagine Ryan actually WORKING?
He'd be the laughing stock of the work site.

9. This was suggested several times before...and now the GOP acknowledges this option?

Every piece of legislation needs an occasional update or fix. This was suggested many times before, but GOP rejected attempts to do so. I laugh because I don't believe Ryan and his ilk to be serious about this option either. They are desperate because they are looking at the polling numbers now (in preparation for the 2018 upcoming elections and see a wasteland of decimated GOP candidates).

13. When Ryan says "incremental", he means "decremental"

Chip away at health care, bit by bit.

Let's start with abortion and contraception, shall we?

15. They all think the same...

"Well, I think there are a lot of things we can do kind of incrementally," Ryan said.

very similar to sam brownbacks..."We're going to have a real live experiment."

18. Ryan would like to throw boxes of band aids at patients in hospitals like

The Moron did when throwing paper towels at hurricane victims in PR. These cretins are sub human.
