WASHINGTON, March 17 (UPI) -- U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Sunday the House isn't wasting its time budgeting for a repeal of Obamacare because it will "collapse under its own weight."

The House unveiled its budget last week calling for a repeal of Obamacare as a means of balancing the budget.

"We believe that young people, seniors, families, businesses are in for a very rude awakening as Obamacare is rolled out," Ryan said in an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation." "It still has nearly two years to go before it's fully implemented and we're showing that there's a better way of going and this is a better plan to balance the budget."

When asked by "Face the Nation" host Bob Schieffer if including the repeal in the House budget was a waste of time since there would not be enough votes to do so, Ryan said no.

"I really believe it's going to destroy the healthcare plan, the healthcare system in America. We believe the law will collapse under its own weight and that people will be eager for alternatives, as the gory details unfold in the future with its implementation," Ryan said.
