But without the presidency I don’t think it can be undone yet??? Or can it?
i really like to think this is a cunning move by Boehner and that six months down the road Americans will be screaming for repeal- at least more than already are- once it starts to take and the GOP won’t be branded as “obstructionists”- but this is Boehner- house leader of the party of stoooopid- so i know better....
I HATE that term!
And I HATE You Bonehead for caving in at Ludicrous speed!
We need to coordinate a phone/email protest to this statement. That’s the biggest problem with Republicans, we just let this crap go and these A$$HO!ES think they’re ok.
He needs to take this back. As Rick Santorum said, “Don’t give this issue away, folks.”
Especially when he lives in a cloud ridden city and he is over the age of, say, 25.
I suggest that we now start a movement to have Obamacare apply to *all* government personnel as well (including elected officials).
I agree Boehner should be replaced for other reasons, but in this case, why?? We lost. Boehner is acknowledging the obvious. What`s he supposed to say?
Obamacare is set in stone now. Voters want it.
change the law, stupid !!! that’s what we’re paying for !!!!!
What the HELL is wrong with him telling the truth?!
There is NO realistic way to avoid it.
Nearly every banner ad I saw for Romney said he would "repeal Obamacare". The voters knew what was at stake. They chose Obamugabe.
Don't smack down Boehner...Boehner and the House passed three or four REPEALS to Obamacare, IIRC, and they were DOA.
SCOTUS approved it, though there are some more roads based on freedom of religion, etc...
Until the American voters are convinced this despicable law needs to be stopped, we need to realize where we are!
Of course lots of roadblocks ought to be pursued...I have been talking about lowering my "economic footprint" and trying to starve the beast.
We know the rich, as they are targeted for destruction for by Obama, will find ways to hide or shift their wealth away from taxation.
Our next chance is in two years, and then four years, if there is any damn Republic left.
I'm just sayin'...John Boehner is RECOGNIZING REALITY.
He could have said he would defend the law with the same vigor that obama has defended the Defense of Marriage Act, our immigration laws, and whatever other laws he’s chosen to ignore.
Obama has beaten the GOP at every turn. Obama is trying to transform America according to his Marxist revolutionary views, and they are trying to be polite over dinner at the Country Club.
Seems like an I told you so moment. The congressmen who said that they finally have control of the people was so right. The pubs would never give up the power either. He who is in charge of the people rule.
And it has started.
Just now I received a call from my diabetes doctor’s office. She is closing her practice as of December 20th. A few months ago she told me she would retire rather than practice under obamacare. During today’s call I found out that another doctor in the practice was also quitting for the same reason.
This morning my husband scheduled an appointed with his ortho doctor to have his second knee replacement surgery. She told my husband “It is about time. After February the doctor will no longer be taking patients or
And CONSTANTLY wears his emotions on his sleeve.
Is there anyway to install a new Speaker of the House or is it based on seniority?
This guy gets a pair of aces and the whole table knows.
*think*? This man needs to go? Why would he ever say this right now as conservatives are reeling from this election? Oh, that’s right the Rino Establishments hates conservatives.
Why attack Boehner? He fought Obama Care.
What about Obama and Roberts? They passed Obama Care.
and good cover so he does not have to even try to repeal the law.
No wonder people call him names.
Due to the high standards maintained on FR, I cannot say what I would like Mr. Boehner to do.
If I had one of those drone list things like Barry does Bonhead would be in the top 3... along with his grinning moron sidekick Kantor.
How do you make font that big? I’ve been wanting to scream around here for the last 24 hours but don’t know the code.
