Paul Ryan: ObamaCare Will ‘Collapse Under Its Own Weight’

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Sunday predicted that, now that the Supreme Court upheld Affordable Care Act subsidies, the law will fail by itself.

Speaking on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday, Ryan said the Supreme Court was wrong to uphold federal healthcare subsidies under ObamaCare.

But Ryan said the law’s consequences, like squeezing Medicare, denying consumers choice and double-digit annual increases in premiums, will make it easier for Congress to repeal it.

“This law’s going to collapse under its own weight,” said Ryan, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.
