“Read the bill at ReadtheBill.gop,” urged House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Tuesday as he introduced the 57-page “The American Healthcare Act” to the public.
“It keeps our promise to repeal and replace Obamacare,” said Ryan, adding that the new plan is designed to “deliver relief to Americans fed up with skyrocketing premiums and fewer choices.”
Hearkening back to seven years ago when Rep. Nancy Pelosi advised passage of the healthcare bill before reading the massive tome, Ryan instead said that he wants people to actually read the bill before it’s passed. “It’s time to turn a page and rescue our health care system from this disastrous law,” he said in a statement.
“The American Health Care Act is a plan to drive down costs, encourage competition, and give every American access to quality, affordable health insurance. It protects young adults, patients with pre-existing conditions, and provides a stable transition so that no one has the rug pulled out from under them.”
Ryan promised that the bill will “proceed through a transparent process of regular order in full view of the public.”
