President’s don’t write laws. Congress does.
“This ruling is a big win for the Constitution."

Last week, Speaker Ryan discussed the House’s commitment to address the nation’s opioid epidemic:

In announcing his dangerous plan to close Guantanamo earlier this week, President Obama argued, “I don’t want to pass this problem on to the next president, whoever it is.” If only he felt this way about other more pressing challenges facing our country.

Tomorrow, the House will hold a vote to override the president’s veto of legislation repealing ObamaCare and defunding Planned Parenthood. Regardless of the outcome, we have now shown there is a clear path to full repeal without 60 votes in the Senate. It is also just one in a number of steps we’re taking to hold President Obama accountable for the failures of this law. Here’s an update on another:

House v. Burwell

Appearing on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Speaker Ryan outlined congresssional Republicans' five key priorities for offering the country a bold, pro-growth agenda in 2016: national security, jobs and economic growth, health care, poverty and opportunity, and restoring the Constitution.

"Obamacare will be gone. And then, for all the people who have seen their premiums go up, for people who have lost their plan or their doctor, for people who have to deal with all the mandates, the restrictions, and the red tape, we can replace this law with a truly patient-centered health care system."

Congress has kicked off 2016 by putting President Obama on defense.

“This is the closest that we have come to repealing Obamacare. And now we are sending that repeal to the president’s desk."
