Ryan: ‘I’m Comforted by the CBO Report Which Shows We Will Lower Premiums’

‘We have to get premiums down and we have to make sure the people with pre-existing conditions can get affordable coverage’

EXCERPT:

RYAN: "Let’s -- let's subsidize those that have these severe illnesses so they get affordable comprehensive coverage, they don’t go bankrupt if they get sick, and by doing that, we free up the marketplace for everybody else so that they can get even lower premiums. That’s what the waiver is all about, giving states the flexibility to do this. And that’s why I’m actually comforted by the CBO report which shows, yeah, we'll lower premiums."
