Ryan: ‘ObamaCare Is Collapsing and People Are Getting Hit with Double Digit’ Hikes

‘We want to give states the ability to kind of customize the reforms to maximize the ability to lower premiums and protect people with pre-existing conditions’

EXCERPT:

RYAN: "You got to remember ObamaCare is collapsing and people are getting hit with double digit premium increases. So whatever we can do to get those premiums down, but also make sure that the guarantee for people with pre-existing conditions is met but give states — every state is a little different. We had a high-risk pool in Wisconsin that worked pretty well. They had a risk share pool in Maine that worked really well. So we want to give the states the ability to kind of customize the reforms to maximize the ability to lower premiums and protect people with pre-existing conditions, and that’s exactly at the heart of what the MacArthur amendment does and I think it helps us to get to consensus."
