PAUL RYAN DEFLECTS BLAMES FOR REPUBLICAN HEALTH CARE WOES TO TRUMP

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Wednesday that President Donald Trump and a Senate committee helped write the House’s embattled replacement plan for Obamacare.

You wrote it, you own it.

And the Wisconsin Republican insisted that “major components” of that bill will stay in place.

Ryan’s comments on Fox Business News came as conservatives and other critics of the bill, which would repeal and replace key parts of the Affordable Care Act, clamored for changes.

Some conservative allies of Trump have called for the president to drop his support for the proposal because of the political perils of shrinking federal financial aid to help people get health coverage.

“Obviously, the major components are staying intact, because this is something we wrote with President Trump, this is something we wrote with the Senate committee,” Ryan said.

“This is the plan we ran on all of last year.”
