Paul Ryan: House bill delivers on our promises
The picture above disturbs me. President Trump ran and won as an outsider and vowed to drain the swamp (GOP establishment) yet here Trump is almost giving a wet kiss to the Prince of the Swamp Paul Ryan. The president has been way to close to the GOP establishment for my taste. Now from Paul Ryan's speech after the House passed the HC bill. From USA Today:

Excerpts from House Speaker Paul Ryan’s speech on the House floor in support of the American Health Care Act:
There is a fundamental — and urgent — choice at the heart of this debate. We can continue with the status quo under Obamacare. We know what that looks like. It means even higher premiums, even fewer choices, even more insurance companies pulling out, even more uncertainty, even more chaos.
Look at what has happened in Iowa this week. As is the case in so many areas in this country, Iowa is down to one insurer. That is not a choice.
But now that one insurer is saying it will have to pull out of 94 of the 99 counties in Iowa. So tens of thousands of Iowans will go from one option to no options. That is not a choice. It is a crisis.
