Paul Ryan to set GOP healthcare agenda


Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and House Republicans will be releasing six policy papers throughout June, including one on healthcare, according to Roll Call.

Each of the policy papers — which are part of Speaker Ryan's "Confident America" agenda — will contain details and explanations of proposed, GOP-backed policy changes, according to the report. They are being crafted by six task forces, each of which focuses on one of the following issues: poverty, taxes, healthcare, national security, regulations and constitutional authority, according to the report.

Speaker Ryan said some of the task forces may even release legislative text, though he doesn't expect votes on the plans, as they are intended for the next president, according to the report. He also acknowledged most of the ideas would not be approved if Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton is elected in November. As the Republican candidate, Speaker Ryan acknowledged Donald Trump is aware of agenda, according to the report. However, both Mr. Trump and Speaker Ryan have said they are "not ready" to support one another, according to the report.
