Summary: Speaker Ryan called into The Hugh Hewitt Show today to discuss working with the Trump administration during its first 200 days, repealing Obamacare, tax reform, and regulatory reform.

Key Quote: “We can immediately bring some relief by reducing that government takeover and then pass the kind of legislation we need to bring more choices, more competition, and bring lower prices, and stop the government from mandating what everybody must do with their lives as a respect to health care.”

The First 200 Days
“We are mapping out . . . our January through August strategy to go big and to go bold and to implement our agenda we all ran on and all agree upon. The big things that you know about: repealing and replacing Obamacare; fundamental tax reform; rebuilding our budget, which helps us rebuild our military; fixing the regulatory state, which has a stranglehold on jobs; working on getting people from welfare to work. All of those kinds of things—the infrastructure package, which is something that President-elect Trump added to our agenda, which we’re happy to do—all of those things are the big, bold agenda that we’re going to be working on.”

Obamacare
“The reason Obamacare costs so much and there are so fewer choices is because it’s a government takeover of health care. So we can immediately bring some relief by reducing that government takeover and then pass the kind of legislation we need to bring more choices, more competition, and bring lower prices, and stop the government from mandating what everybody must do with their lives as a respect to health care.”

Tax Reform
“We are pushing American businesses overseas because of our tax laws. We’ve got to reform and overhaul our tax laws. So I keep hearing from Democrats coming up to me individually and say that’s something they want to work on.”

Midnight Regulations
“Basically, what the Obama administration tried doing on the way out the door here is kill any form of energy—other than the subsidies for solar and wind, which we are actually getting rid of over a five-year period here. . . . So we will have Democrats from energy-producing states I think vote with us on some of the regulatory overhauls, so that we can make our country the energy powerhouse that it can and should be."
