Paul Ryan: Not Worried About 2018 Midterms Right Now

House Speaker Paul Ryan tells ABc's George Stephanopoulos that he is keeping his word to repeal Obamacare and not thinking about 2018. <blockquote>SPEAKER RYAN: I’m not. Number one, health care is a complicated and very emotional personal issue. And we completely understand that. The system is failing. We’re stepping in front of it and rescuing people from a collapsing system. And more importantly, we’re keeping our word. That’s really important here, George. People expect their elected leaders, if they run and campaign on doing something, they expect them to do that. And that’s what we’re doing. We’re keeping our word. And I would argue that we would spell disaster for ourselves, politically, if that’s your question, if we go back on our word. This is us keeping our word. But most importantly, it’s us trying to fix a real problem that real people are experiencing in this country.</BLOCKQUOTE>
