House Speaker Paul Ryan said there’s no daylight between congressional leaders and the White House as Republicans look to move forward with their controversial plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
Speaking with CNN on Wednesday afternoon, the Wisconsin Republican described President Trump as “all in” on leadership’s legislation, known as the American Health Care Act.
“We’re working hand in glove with the White House. We meet with them daily, we’ve worked on this bill together, we jointly drafted this legislation — House, Senate and White House,” Ryan said.
“They are fully invested on this.”
Ryan’s comments come as more conservative members of the House continue to balk at legislation they say does not go far enough to remove government from healthcare, while moderates worry it goes too far in hastening the demise of Medicaid.
