Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan is planning to use the Congressional Review Act to repeal President Donald Trump’s “culture” rule, a provision of the 2016 Republican healthcare law that requires the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Health and Human Services to take steps to ensure that Americans are protected from harmful products and practices.
The rule is also designed to ensure consumers have the information they need to make informed choices about their health and well-being.
But it could also be used to help Republicans defeat a Democratic president in 2018, especially if they’re hoping to get rid of a popular health care law.

And that’s exactly what we’re trying to do,” Ryan said in an interview on Wednesday.
The House passed the legislation with support from all but one Republican, including Speaker Paul D. Ryan.
“The president’s decision to impose a religious test for any new federal regulation that requires public accommodation is an example of why the CRA should be invoked in cases where the government action is so contrary to the Constitution,” Ryan added.
“We will not allow the federal government to impose any law that conflicts with religious beliefs or practices.”
In addition to the CRA, the Republican Party has also used it to repeal other parts of the Affordable Care Act, including its ban on federal funding for abortion coverage.
That move also has been opposed by some conservative lawmakers.
The Trump administration has argued that the legislation is needed to protect Americans from harmful medical products and has said it’s not an attempt to force religious institutions to provide services.
But the White House has also defended the policy, saying that the law was intended to be broadly and effectively applied to all Americans.
“When the health care bill passed, we knew that it was going to pass, and I believe it did pass, but that didn’t mean it was the right law for everyone,” Trump told Fox News in May.
“I know there are people who say that it’s unfair, but I want to be fair to everybody.
I’m not going to say, ‘You know what, I’ll tell you who’s gonna get hurt.’
I’ll say, let’s give everybody a fair shot.
But I also want to make sure that everyone is getting the same kind of care, and if we don’t get everybody the same level of care that we have, that’s not fair to anybody.”
The White House argues that the health law has been successful in helping to control the nation’s rising obesity rate, which has soared from an all-time high of 32 percent in 2010 to 26.5 percent today.
The Republican Party, meanwhile, has been concerned about the effects of the ACA’s contraceptive mandate on women and children.
In June, the GOP Senate majority voted to advance the legislation despite a push by Democratic senators to vote against it.
A number of conservative Republican senators have also criticized the law as a step toward government takeover of the private sector.
“It’s the first step in the direction of taking away the freedom of the market,” Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said at the time.
“And we’re going to do everything we can to prevent this from happening.
We’re not going into the business of creating a social welfare state.
We don’t want government taking away our freedom to make decisions for us.”
