Ryan, in his press conference, said his leadership team had submitted proposals to the Congressional Budget Office and Joint Committee on Taxation to evaluate how the proposals will affect insurance coverage and the budget.

Walden said by the end of March, his committee would start writing its part of the measure voiding much of Obama's law and substituting GOP programs.

U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford is officially taking the conservative lead in the House of Representatives on legislation to replace the 2010 health law known as Obamacare.

Ryan and other leaders met this morning with rank-and-file Republicans to outline the contours of an emerging plan for using a special expedited budget process called reconciliation to formally repeal Obamacare - effective at some future date -- and replacing portions of the law with the Republicans' more market-oriented provisions.
