As “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace peppered Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) with questions about the Republican plan to address a potential Supreme Court ruling against Affordable Care Act subsidies, the congressman repeatedly refused to explain the party’s solution.

“We will have an answer. We will have a solution,” Ryan, the chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, responded when first asked if Republicans have a fix. “We don’t want people to fall victim because of this bad law.”

Wallace then asked specifically whether the GOP plan would make sure that all Americans with subsidies could keep them.

Ryan said he would not go into details because congressional Republicans want to see the “nature of the ruling.”

He then refused to answer whether Republicans would include in their fix a provision to eliminate the individual mandate.

Wallace later reminded Ryan that the GOP has yet to propose an alternative to the Affordable Care Act.

“For all the complaints, Congressman, we’re five years into Obamacare and Republicans have still not come up with a coherent plan that will ensure that all of those millions of uninsured people get coverage,” Wallace said.
