Paul Ryan Calls for 'Contingency Plan' for Obamacare

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has outlined his priorities for the year 2015. One issue he wants to tackle: a back-up plan for the Affordable Care Act.

The Supreme Court of the United States will be deciding on the case King v. Burwell. The ruling could eliminate Obamacare subsidies for 3/4 of states. This will affect a lot of people and the stakes are pretty high. Should that situation unfold, the Affordable Care Act may need to be re-written.

“We have to have a contingency plan,” said Ryan at a news briefing on Friday.

Many Republicans who are against the Affordable Care Act hope the ruling will take down the law altogether. With Republican majority in the House, however, it’s going to be up to the GOP to come up with a new plan. While committee chairmen are working on it, Ryan warns that there are still a lot of variables. “We don’t know exactly how the ruling would come down,” he said.

After six years of debates and only four months to go until the ruling—now Congress is worried about a plan. Glad they didn’t wait till the last minute. That could have been disastrous.
