As ABC News reports, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has confirmed that the House GOP will no longer attempt to repeal Obamacare. When asked about the future of the health care reform law, Boehner said the election changes that and Obamacare is the law of the land.

Repeal is impossible with the Chief Jackwagon in the White Hut. Boehner can’t repeal it - waste of time. Senate won’t even take it up. Now, he can defund it. And then defund whatever else - DOE, DHHS, EPA, etc. And not a thing Obama nor the Senate can do about it. Any regulation put forth, he can strike their budgetary amount just like that. Will he? Nope - we got the wrong guy as a Speaker. Need someone like Ron Paul, Retired. Yes, I am serious.
True. Do people really think a repeal would pass a Dem Senate? Those are pipe dreams.
Wait till next year. If people dislike the tax hikes from Obamacare enough Boehner will have more of a mandate to act.
Good Bye GOP! I’m forever done with you. No more holding my nose and voting for you at any level.
It’s over. Never again. For 40 years I’ve argued there is a difference...no longer. It really, really, really isn’t true.
The only difference is the number of links in the chains of statism.
Coward RINO File.
He should also say that the GOP will continue to work so that it can be repealed in the future, acknowledging that the current political makeup of the White House and the Senate make it impossible.
I think you would have to have enough Senate votes to override a Presidential veto.
uh, that will not happen any time soon.

Exactly like that without the space before the first font word.
Translation: “Primary me!”
Sometimes laws need to be disobeyed.
Was Boehner crying?
And just when did they ever try to repeal it? I don’t remember them withholding funding. LOL
Yes folks, continue on blaming people for not voting all the while ignoring the GOP was just playing everyone with no intention to ever repeal it. I knew they had no intention, it was sealed with Roberts’ vote. If they were truly against it they’d have fought it with their jobs on the line by holding back funding and certainly wouldn’t stop with on election.
NOT. ONE. MORE. VOTE. FROM. ME.
And how would you do that, specifically? Given that the Senate and White House are in Democrat control? This is your chance to lay out your plan to change the law, Speaker Nevermorelenore.
Sheesh. I’ve complained for years about tone deaf Republicans who can’t smack a softball out of the park. The proper answer: “Obamacare is a disastrous piece of legislation that is going to put bureaucrats between doctors and patients, drive up costs, degrade the quality of care, and lead to substandard care in a rationed system. That’s going to become brutally clear in the next couple of years as the taxes kick in and millions, soon tens of millions, of people lose their current coverage and get dumped into government rationed schemes. 60% of the American people didn’t want Obamacare to begin with, and only a president and democrat congress of surpassing arrogance would have crammed it down their throats. The recent election results probably mean we don’t have the votes for repeal right now, but Obamacare stinks to high heaven and its going to get worse. We have a huge job ahead to salvage what we can of quality medical care and to put American citizens and their doctors back in charge. “
That’s not hard.
How does this guy ever make it to work? He obviously has to wait until all lights are guaranteed to be green before he leaves his home.
THERE IS NOTHING THE HOUSE CAN DO TO STOP OBAMA CARE!!!
Boehner as just telling the truth.
It is the Law of the Land!!
(elections do have consequences and if you didn’t vote, you don’t have a dog in this fight)
The House Republicans have already funded it longer than necessary. I think it's March 2013 when a vote for continued funding is due. DEFUND it already!
Making a font that big pretty much guarantees that no one will want to read it. I always scroll down away from posts like that. It's the internet equivalent of screaming at the top of your lungs. Very annoying.
boehner is being a douche. he acts like the election was a landslide. it wasn’t.
