Speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced on Thursday that House Republicans are getting closer to finalizing a new repeal and replace healthcare bill.

"We have made some real progress this week," Ryan said at a press conference.  "We have come together on a new amendment that we all believe will lower premiums and provide added protections for those facing real challenges gaining access to affordable care."

The new bill "brings us closer," Ryan added.
