BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan says Republicans in the House are trying to make the case to Democrats in the Senate that it's in their interest to delay further implementation of the health care overhaul law.

Ryan outlined his continued opposition to President Barack Obama's signature health care law during a speech Friday before a business group in Brookfield.

Ryan says the Affordable Care Act can't be delayed or stopped without support from Obama, so the only way to do that is convince other Democrats to slow down the law.

Ryan, the House budget committee chairman, argues that the law will increase health costs for Americans and hurt the economy.

Wisconsin state Rep. Jon Richards attended the lunch and refutes Ryan's claims. He calls Ryan's comments "another recitation of misinformation."
