On Monday, Speaker Ryan participated in seven Wisconsin TV interviews to discuss how—and why—a unified Republican government will repeal Obamacare and replace it with an affordable, patient-centered system that gives everyone access to quality health care. Speaker Ryan discussed these efforts during each of his interviews—keep reading for key quotes from each conversation below.
“We don't want to have a system where you have one choice and you've got to pay through the nose for it and you have no money left in your paycheck to do anything for your family. We want to have more choices, more competition."
"We want people to be in charge of their healthcare, not government running their healthcare.”
“If you don’t want to buy insurance, we’re not going to have the government put a mandate on you and make you do this, which is what the current case is—and that failed miserably. So we want to make sure that we have a system where you have more choices, lower prices, you’re in control, and you have access to affordable care, which we do not now have.”
"Access to affordable insurance for everybody is the key. . . . We want to make sure people can customize insurance that meets their needs and get affordable coverage so they can get covered.”
“We think that people should be in charge of their own health care. We think that people should have more options. We believe in a patient-centered system where we have more people competing for patient's business—not a monopoly like Obamacare.”
“Aaron Rodgers was the Jedi Master last night—that just was an amazing thing to watch.” (You didn’t think we’d get through a Wisconsin recap without mentioning the Packers, did you?)
