Ryan Vows To Both Repeal, Replace Obamacare At The Same Time

House Speaker Paul Ryan of Janesville says majority House Republicans vow to replace Obamacare at the same time the current program falls by the wayside -- and they're in "complete sync" with President Elect Donald Trump who wants a change as soon as possible.

In the meantime, the House is scheduled to vote today (Friday) on a budget package that calls on congressional panels to start writing bills to dismantle the Obama health law. The Senate passed the same measure Thursday, rejecting Democratic amendments including one from Wisconsin's Tammy Baldwin to make sure those 26 and younger can still be on their parents' health insurance. The G-O-P has not said how it would deal with those issues, but Speaker Ryan says the party's strategy will be outlined the weekend of January 28th at a joint House/Senate Republican retreat in Philadelphia.
