House Speaker Paul Ryan is defending the GOP health care bill as budget analysts project that 14 million people would lose coverage next year and 24 million in the next decade.
Ryan is focusing on lower premiums and improved ‘‘access to quality, affordable care’’ in a statement Monday.
The Wisconsin Republican says the Congressional Budget Office analysis does not take into account additional steps the GOP-led Congress and Trump administration would take to lower costs and increase choices.
Ryan is rejecting what he calls the one-size-fits-all coverage of the Affordable Care Act, the existing law passed under Barack Obama in 2010.
He says the GOP bill is about giving Americans more choices and better access to plans they want and can afford.
