Ryan: ObamaCare replacement bill still needs work, but likely to pass soon

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Sunday that Republicans’ ObamaCare replacement bill remains set for a final vote this week but acknowledged members are still “fine tuning” the measure.

“I feel very good about it, actually,” Ryan said. “It’s exactly where we want to be.”
