After addressing concerns of older Americans, House Speaker Ryan is Confident About Health Plan’s Passage. Ok but what about the Senate?

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Sunday expressed confidence that the Republican health-care plan will pass the House later this week, saying his party’s lawmakers are working to make changes to the bill to address remaining concerns, including providing more assistance to older Americans.

“I feel very good about it. This is exactly where we want to be,” the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with “Fox News Sunday.”

Changes that the House Republicans are considering include helping people in their 50s and 60s, who, according to a recent analysis by the Congressional Budget Office, will see sharp increases in premiums in 10 years, compared with what they would pay under the existing plan.

“We believe we should have more assistance, and that’s what we are looking at, for that person in their 50s and 60s because they experience higher health care costs,” Mr. Ryan said.
