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.
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.
He should also say that the GOP will continue to work so that it can be repealed in the future, acknowledging that the current political makeup of the White House and the Senate make it impossible.
The House could have defunded it. They chose not to because of the storm that would follow. Oh, not over the law itself, but that Democrats would have attached it to something else considered politically untenable.
As to Romney...give me a break. His would be Chief of staff supported it and Romney refused to say he’d repeal all of it.
Republicans had no intention of following through. they were just hoping they could milk the issue toward another 2010 win. well, not enough people bought into the fairytale they constructed this time.
All spending originates in the House.
Boehner is the Speaker of said House.
WHY IS HE NOT PURSUING THIS TO KILL THIS MONSTROSITY?
B. You come up with ways to undermine it, defund it, repeal pieces of it. Maybe even think about how to package a repeal as part of a budget deal.
C. You don't do B is you are afraid of the Washington Post and you are a big government liberal who likes having huge federal spending that you can help parcel out. That is who Boehner is.
D. So, given that Boehner is a liberal who does not have big problems with the end of freedom in America and the imposition of Obamacare, what he said is correct.
Sadly, you are correct.
There was an election. We lost.
There was a Supreme Court decision. We were betrayed.
It is the law of the land.
He can defund it. That could’ve started two years ago. Face Boehner LIKES ObamaCare. So shut up.
Nothing. The problem is that Boehner is LYING.
The House comtrols the purse strings completely, and the House can defund Obamacare, or pieces of it, anytime it wants.
“lowering my “economic footprint” and trying to starve the beast. “
OK, so maybe we can coordinate this effort to starve the beast.
Let’s stop buying stuff unless absolutely necessary.
No new cars, unneeded clothing, home remodels, pricy vacations, eating out or prepared foods.
Perhaps we should start living like the economic collapse that we know is coming has already occurred.
The cut back in commerce and individual spending should start immediately.
