Ryan to provide details on 'path forward' for healthcare later this week

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said efforts to reform healthcare will not cease, despite the GOP's ACA replacement bill being pulled from the House floor last week, reports The Washington Post.

Rep. Ryan made the remarks during a Monday meeting with Republican donors. During the meeting, he said he will continue to pursue healthcare changes while addressing other issues important to President Donald Trump, according to the report.

He also indicated to donors he would provide additional details on plans for healthcare reform later this week at a retreat in Florida, reports The Washington Post.

"When we're in Florida, I will lay out the path forward on healthcare and all the rest of the agenda," Rep. Ryan said Monday, according to a recording obtained by the publication. "I will explain how it all still works, and how we're still moving forward on healthcare with other ideas and plans. So please make sure that if you can come, you come — it will be good to look at what can feasibly get done and where things currently stand. But know this: We are not giving up."

President Trump also indicated healthcare reform efforts will continue. On Monday night, he tweeted: "The Democrats will make a deal with me on healthcare as soon as ObamaCare folds — not long. Do not worry, we are in very good shape!"
