Fox & Friends Host Dings Paul Ryan For Insisting On Repeal Of ‘Obamacare’ In Budget: ‘That’s Not Practical’

As President Barack Obama drops his campaign-style appearances around the nation in favor of meetings with the nation’s leading Congressional representatives to strike a budget deal, Laura Ingraham joined the hosts of Fox & Friends to discuss the changing tone in Washington. Both she and host Brian Kilmeade said that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) was not being a productive part of that effort as his budget proposal continues to insist on the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. “That’s not practical,” Kilmeade said.

“Even though you might want it, the Supreme Court has spoken,” Kilmeade said of Ryan’s proposal to eliminate the ACA. “That’s never going to fly.”

“You’re exactly right,” Ingraham said. “The public is still against what Obamacare is doing to the health care system, and I think Paul Ryan sees that even in some Democrat states – you just saw Massachusetts yesterday say that they want a Medicaid waiver for Massachusetts. They’re seeing what’s going to happen in a state like Massachusetts. I think Ryan thinks he has some philosophical space to move in there.”

“Nevertheless, you’re right, Brian,” Ingraham concluded. “It’s a very optimistic and generous way of looking at the monies that will be on the table and available to him.”
