“I’m not going to be campaigning with him for the next 30 days”.
The publication of the audio comes as enmity grows between Ryan, a Congressman from Wisconsin, and Breitbart, a site that was once run by Trump adviser Steve Bannon.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released their highly-anticipated scoring of the ObamaCare repeal bill, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), and its favorable.
Many conservatives and conservative media outlets have been critical of the bill, but Breitbart has striven to lay its perceived flaws right at the feet of Bannon’s old nemesis.
The upshot of adverse selection is that the proportion of sick people in the risk pool ends up being higher than that of healthy people, which forces insurers to raises rates to accommodate the unexpectedly large number of claims.
CBO: It estimates the bill would leave 14 million fewer people insured in the first year, 24 million the by 2026.
And, for the GOP, it’s not just Ryan who has a lot on the line.
The previously undisclosed recording, which can not be verified by the Daily News, reveals that Ryan told House Republicans in a private October 10 conference call that then-candidate Trump’s comments about grabbing women “by the p–y” were “not anywhere in keeping with our party’s principles and values”.
Now Ryan and Trump are besties.
The House speaker also said on the call that Trump’s vulgar comments, which were captured prior to a 2005 appearance on “Access Hollywood”, do not fit the GOP’s “principles and values”.
Kerrey says, “It is a good faith effort to come up a replacement”. So much for President Trump’s promised war on the economic elites on behalf of the common American.
The Breitbart story argues that Ryan meant to make a complete split from Mr. Trump. This is not the government makes you buy what we say you should buy, and therefore the government thinks you’re all going to buy it. “By publishing the now, they are reminding their base that he was never really with them”. In one interview, Ryan said the report “exceeded” his expectations.
“The major components are staying intact”, the House speaker said.
It’s odd Breitbart would go as far as to release an audio clip to draw attention to an already-known fact that Ryan didn’t support Trump post-Access Hollywood controversy. Was The Post hoping to embarrass him?
Paul, R-Ky., called the plan “Obamacare-lite” on “Face the Nation”, saying it provides a bailout for the insurance industry and still allows Medicaid to grow by 5 percent a year.
