  • “We’ve got to repeal and replace Obamacare because that is really hurting families,” Ryan told CBS’ “60 Minutes.”
  • Ryan, who initially declined to endorse Trump’s candidacy and was subsequently openly attacked by the GOP nominee on the campaign trail, said that he and Trump have “decided to let bygones be bygones”.

House speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said during an interview that aired Sunday that repealing Obamacare will be the first priority of Congress once President-elect Donald Trump takes office.

“We’ve got to repeal and replace Obamacare because that is really hurting families,” Ryan told CBS’ “60 Minutes.”

Ryan revealed that “the first bill we’re going to be working on is our Obamacare legislation.”
Asked if a repeal of the legislation would come before a replacement, Ryan answered, “We want to make sure that we have a good transition period, so that people can get better coverage at a better price.”

Ryan said a replacement for the Affordable Care Act will offer Americans “patient-centered health care that gets everybody access to affordable health care coverage so they can buy what they what they want to buy.”

He added that a replacement will protect provisions of Obamacare that are popular with the American people, such as coverage for people with pre-existing conditions and the ability for parents to keep their children on their health insurance plans until they are 26.

Ryan, who initially declined to endorse Trump’s candidacy and was subsequently openly attacked by the GOP nominee on the campaign trail, said that he and Trump have “decided to let bygones be bygones” and that the two have spoken almost daily during Trump’s transition.
“We’re fine,” Ryan said. “We’re not looking back. That’s behind us. We’re way beyond that. Now we’re talking about how do we fix this country’s problems.”

Ryan said he and Trump have had “extremely productive conversations,” including about the Constitution and the separation of powers.

“He feels very strongly, actually, that — that, under President Obama’s watch, he stripped a lot of power away from the Constitution, away from the legislative branch of government,” Ryan said. “And we want to reset the balance of power, so that people and the Constitution are rightfully restored.”
