The White House and House Republicans said Thursday they are close to presenting their health-care reform plans, as Democrats grilled President Donald Trump's pick to head the agency that will carry out their plans.
House Speaker Paul Ryan said
"Obamacare is not simply stuck in some kind of status quo. It is getting worse by the day, and it will keep getting worse unless we act," said Ryan, citing Humana's announcement thatit will exit the Obamacare exchanges in 2018 earlier this week.
"After the House returns following President's Day, we intend to introduce legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare," the Speaker said.
Yet, Ryan offered few details about the legislation, and a number of House Republican leaders say there is still no consensus on the details of a replacement package for Obamacare.
