Paul Ryan: Republicans will be vindicated in 2018 on healthcare

In an impromptu interview to discuss the Republicans’ four special election victories, including last week’s crucial win in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, Ryan said the liberal strategy for dealing with Trump has been discredited. So, too, the speaker added, would doubters of his party’s legislation to partially repeal Obamacare.

“The Democrats are in disarray. All they’re doing is suggesting they’re going to come and fight and resist, and I don’t think that’s what voters want,” the Wisconsin Republican told the Washington Examiner. “We just saw four victories for tackling problems and addressing issues, and four defeats for just simple resistance — and that was the basis of their campaign.”
