'Obamacare' under attack as conservatives eye 2016

(Continued)

MANCHESTER, N.H. —

Trump, who says he's also considering a Republican presidential bid, echoed many of the Democrats' concerns. "Leave my Medicare alone," he declared.

Campaigning in Iowa the night before, Ryan defended his recently passed budget plan as a sign of growing GOP unity.

"Some people wanted to go further, some people thought it went too far. The point is we unified around these common principles in a plan," the Wisconsin congressman said after headlining an Iowa GOP dinner. "That's very important to me — which is we can't just oppose, we have to propose."

Back in New Hampshire, conservatives also criticized another potential presidential contender who was not in attendance, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who recently suggested that many immigrants enter the United States illegally because of love for their families.

Trump described Bush's suggestion as "out there."
