Obamacare has failed the American people—and things are only getting worse. When Congress reconvenes in January, we will begin the process of reversing the damage caused by Obamacare by passing the legislative tools necessary to repeal it. To achieve a stronger, more patient-centered health care system, we first have to fix what isn’t working.
2016 was a busy—and productive—year for House Republicans. At a press conference with other Republican leaders, Speaker Ryan discussed 2016 and the #BetterWay that's on the horizon.

As part of the Better Way health care agenda, we laid out a plan to accelerate the development of cutting-edge cures and treatments. Right now, there are 10,000 known diseases, but we only have treatments for 500 of them. The 21st Century Cures Act, which the House will take up today, seeks to close this gap. Its passage would mean:

In this week’s Republican address, incoming House GOP Conference Vice Chair Doug Collins (R-GA) delivers a special Thanksgiving message and previews the opportunities that await with a unified Republican government.

“We have to go big.” That was the message Speaker Ryan delivered this morning at a press briefing with House Republican leaders. Below are his full opening remarks:

In this week’s Republican address, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) pays a special tribute to our nation’s veterans, thanking them for their service and discussing House Republican ideas to honor their sacrifices.

"These eye-popping premium hikes are just more evidence that Obamacare is not working."

Right now, our tax code looks like a block of Swiss cheese. It’s got all these carveouts and loopholes. And the IRS is the one calling the shots. 

There is a better way

Our plan makes the tax code flatter. We close those loopholes and use that money to cut tax rates for everyone: workers, families, and small businesses too. And one more thing: Our plan makes the tax code simpler—so simple, in fact, that you can do your taxes on a form the size of a postcard. 

America’s economy is the greatest in the world, but we are far from our potential—anemic growth, flat wages, and more than 94 million people out of the workforce. 

There is a better way, and it starts with getting government OUT of the way.
