Tim Ryan: GOP Health Care Bill ‘One of the Great Flip Flops in Political History’

‘Health care is a real opportunity for us to show that Trump has really gone back on so many promises that he made during the campaign’

EXCERPT:

RYAN: "Health care is a real opportunity for us to show that Trump has really gone back on so many promises that he made during the campaign. I think this particular health care bill will go down as one of the great flip-flops in political history right up there with 'Read my lips, no new taxes.' The promises that President Trump made in places like Ohio about health care and jobs and then turns around and is going to actively support this health care bill is ridiculous. The head of the Ohio Hospital Association just said that this is going to cost us about a million people who will lose their health care and about 25 percent of hospitals in Ohio will close. That is in rural areas that Trump was in there campaigning and making a lot of promises. So this is a platform for us to say this is wrong and why we are better."
