House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Tuesday morning listed three priorities that Congress plans to tackle next year when Donald Trump is in the Oval Office.

Ryan said that Congress will address Obamacare, make changes to the tax code, and roll back regulations.

“That is what a unified Republican government will be about,” he said.

Ryan listed three of the four priorities he offered last week in a radio interview, but absent in his list this week was securing the border.

The speaker touted Republicans’ victory in the 2016 election and said that they believed that if they “won the election by campaigning on solutions and ideas, we would be ready to govern.”

“And here we are,” he said.
