Paul Ryan: A shutdown's not the best way to repeal ObamaCare

“We, all Republicans, want to repeal and replace Obamacare. … We’re having a debate about the best way of achieving that goal, the best strategy,” Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Ryan, who was the GOP vice presidential nominee in 2012, pointed out that a government shutdown wouldn’t impact entitlements, including Obamacare.

“Rather than sort of swinging for the fences and take this entire law out … I think there are more effective ways of achieving that goal, Ryan said. “We think we can do better by delaying this law. … I think there is going to be a better strategy to actually achieve our goal of ultimately delaying and ultimately replacing Obamacare.”
