Paul Ryan: ‘We’ve Been Talking to Members About How to Make Improvements to the Bill’

‘Of course we want to listen to our members and make improvements to the bill, so long as those improvements don’t make a bill harder to pass’

RUSH EXCERPT:

RYAN: "Of course. We got to make sure we had the sweet spot, get consensus, get it done. We don't want to have some endless thing. It's been seven years long, we have to make good on our promises. We have to make sure we keep consensus, so, we pass this bill. The freedom caucus members who voted for this and I committees already voted for this. This is modeled after Tom Price's bill that he introduced as recently as December, which had one dozen freedom caucus members as a cosponsor. I feel like we're in a good place. Of course we want to listen to our members and make improvements to the bill, so long as those improvements don't make a bill harder to pass."
