CNN reported that Paul Ryan does not want to work with Democrats to repair the Affordable Care Act despite Trump’s attempt to blame Democrats for failing to work with the Republicans. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said President Donald Trump is “absolutely” willing to work with Democrats on a way forward on health care.
“If this Republican Congress allows the perfect to become the enemy of the good, I worry we’ll push the President to working with Democrats. He’s been suggesting that much.”
“What I worry about, Norah (O’Donnell), is if we don’t do this, then he’ll just go work with Democrats to try to change Obamacare — and that’s hardly a conservative thing,” he said.
House Speaker Paul Ryan says he has no interest in working with Democrats on getting health care legislation passed, disputing a suggestion by the White House to reach across the aisle and bypass conservative House Republicans.
