J. Denny Weaver: Ryan's health care bill reveals his values

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price acknowledged that passing the White House backed health care bill through both houses of Congress is going to be tricky, but said he is confident that the GOP plan to repeal and replace Obamacare will move forward. "We believe we should have even more assistance. for that person in their 50s and 60s because they experience higher health care costs", Ryan told Fox News Sunday.

"It's fixable, but it's going to take a lot of work", Cotton said on CNN's "State of the Union". "But is the major decrease in the number of people - according to the CBO - who will have health insurance, is it freedom or is it that some people will no longer be able to afford health insurance under your plan?"
