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.
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.
I'll tell you what he should say. He should say "Mr. President, you may feel you have a mandate after this election but it pales next to the mandate you ignored when you rammed Obamacare down the American people's throat. It was a huge mandate, 70% of the people, and you didn't care.
And they still don't want it by much bigger margins that your election. So we'll honor that mandate and keep trying to stop Obamacare for the people, for the majority of American people.
