Repealing Obamacare is a top priority for Republicans. And Rep. Paul Ryan, incoming chairman of the House Budget Committee, says that means he will vote against the deficit reduction plan offered by paul,ryan,deficit,commission,vote,againstPresident Barack Obama’s commission, The Hill reports.

“Obviously I am not going to vote for it,” he told reporters. “The plan accelerates and entrenches Obamacare,” making healthcare difficulties “dramatically worse.” The problem with the commission’s plan is that it would send too many people to healthcare exchanges, he says. That would saddle the government with a slew of subsidies.

The 18-member debt commission will vote on the plan Friday. If 14 of them approve, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., have promised a vote on it. But incoming House Speaker John Boehner hasn’t promised anything.
