“Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) has long been lauded as the GOP’s signature policy wonk (a reputation he’s failed to live up to), and, as Speaker of the House, he has had a leading role in crafting the bill. So far, an outsized share of the responsibility for the slow-rolling legislative disaster is landing with Ryan.
On Wednesday, he fought back.
“Now that we have our score from the CBO, that’s something that we were waiting for, now that we’ve got it we’ve got room to make refinements. Obviously the major components are staying intact, because this is something we wrote with President Trump, this is something we wrote with the Senate committees,” Ryan told Fox Business. “This is the plan we ran on all of last year, this is the plan that we’ve been working — House, Senate, White House — together on.”
Ryan’s insistence that the bill was a collaboration with the president and the Senate is significant in light of the concerted campaign right-wing media has embarked on to separate Trump from the bill and pin any dissatisfaction with it on Ryan alone.”*
