Isn’t he special?

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) admitted on Thursday that repealing President Obama’s signature health reform law “isn’t the answer” because it’s too late to roll back all of the changes it’s had on the insurance industry over the past several years.

“Obamacare is the law of the land. It is there and it has driven all types of changes in our health care delivery system. You can’t recreate an insurance market overnight,” Boehner told a group of his constituents at a Rotary Club meeting in his home district.

Boehner suggested that House Republicans need to work to transition “back to a system that empowers patients and doctors to make choices that are good for their own health as opposed to doing what the government is dictating they should do,” but noted that will take some time.

Sometimes I think Boehner and The Idiot King have sleepovers and discuss talking points.

Repeal is not impossible, but it is difficult. One of the reasons that people on the more conservative side of things rail against establishment GOP legislators is because we are forever dealing with problems that came about because they are weak and either support, or get steamrolled by, these massive federal expansions. They capitulate and promise to fight another day but that day never ever comes.

And it’s getting old. Boehnerthumbs

Boehner is a disgusting excuse for a Republican leader and should be removed from his position ASAP. And they should kick Cantor to the curb, while they're at it.

If open contempt for the base and members of your own caucus, as well as colluding with Democrats to erase actual budget cuts (tiny as they were), pushing amnesty, and becoming a surrender monkey on Obamacare isn't enough to make Boehner unworthy of being House Speaker, what is?

WTFOMGBBQ...I figured they'd at least lie through 2016.

Sorry, but I just cannot agree with the premise.

Let's remember how things looked in 2009-2010: The Republicans had been slaughtered in 2 successive elections (2006, 2008) and had seen the improbable election of a political neophyte as President.
There was serious consideration of the question as to whether or not the Republicans would remain a going concern.
They were outnumbered in both the House and the Senate. And still, they held the Democrats at bay for almost 2 years, finally forcing the Democrats to pass Obamacare by an outrageous misuse of the legislative rules. This ensured the bill's illegitimacy for all time, despite St. Barack's declaration that the issue is over.
I'm not saying the current leadership hasn't made irritating statements to and about the base, but in terms of blocking the passage of that abominable bill, they did everything they could and did it well.

So, you agree they should quit running on repeal.

I mean, why not, they got their Medicare Part D through so why can the Dems have a medical corruption cut?

Principles? WTF are those.

Boehner has obviously given up, and is desperate to suck what last Federal Dollars out of Washington that he can...

Sadly, he's not the only one.

I've said it once, I'll say it 1,000 times.

With the way the GOP is acting now, the Democrats could make a test-tube hybrid of Stalin, Hitler, and Khalid Shiekh Mohammed, run him, and he'd win in 2016.
