Paul Ryan Proposes Saving $5.1 Trillion, But that Means Repealing Obamacare

WASHINGTON, DC –  As President Obama described America’s health care system as broken but better than it was before the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), aka “Obamacare,” Congressman and 2012 Republican Vice Presidential Nominee (and possible 2016 presidential contender) Paul Ryan (WI) unveiled a budget plan designed to save the United States over $5 trillion dollars over the next ten years, and part of the savings, he says, are a result of repealing Obamacare.

Ryan, the Budget Committee Chairman of the House of Representatives, contends that the budget will:

  • Expand opportunity by growing the economy
  • Provide troops the training, equipment, and compensation they need
  • Repeal Obamacare to clear the way for patient-centered reform
  • Provide families with a fair, simple tax code to boost wages and create jobs
  • Secure seniors’ retirement by strengthening Medicare and other vital programs
  • Strengthen the safety net and help people get back on their feet
  • Restore fairness by cutting spending and combatting cronyism.

“This budget stops spending money we don’t have,” Ryan writes. “A balanced budget will foster a healthier economy and help create jobs. This will ensure the next generation inherits a stronger, more prosperous America.”
