House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Wednesday said he’s “not that concerned” about criticism of the wealthy getting a tax cut under the GOP’s new health care bill.
“I’m not that concerned about it, because we said we were going to repeal all the Obamacare taxes,” Ryan said. “This is one of the Obamacare taxes.”
Ryan also argued that getting rid of those taxes would help with the GOP’s tax reform efforts later this year.
There has been widespread opposition to the health care bill since it was rolled out earlier this week, including from some conservatives in Congress. Health care organizations, senior advocacy groups and insurers have also criticized the bill.
