American Public to Speaker Ryan: Don't Repeal the ACA Without Offering a Replacement

Last night, Speaker Ryan joined CNN for a town hall. Right off the bat, the Speaker was confronted by one of the millions of Americans who is benefiting from the Affordable Care Act:

Jeff Jeans, self-proclaimed lifelong Republican and small business owner: “Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, I’m standing here today alive. I rely on the Affordable Care Act to be able to purchase my own insurance. Why would you repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement?"

Speaker Ryan: “Oh, we wouldn’t do that, we want to replace it with something better...”

Do Republicans have a secret plan they aren’t telling anyone about? Because last we heard, they are voting today to repeal the ACA and still don’t have a replacement plan to show the American people.
