Boehner: 'ObamaCare' must be on the table in 'fiscal cliff' negotiations
By Sam Baker - 11/21/12 11:19 AM ET


President Obama's signature healthcare law has to be on the table for cuts as Congress tried to negotiate a deal to avoid the "fiscal cliff," House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) wrote in an op-ed.

"We canít afford it, and we canít afford to leave it intact," Boehner wrote in the Cincinnati Enquirer. "Thatís why Iíve been clear that the law has to stay on the table as both parties discuss ways to solve our nationís massive debt challenge."

Republicans have already made clear that they hope to go after the law's insurance subsidies in upcoming debt talks. The subsidies represent billions of dollars that will, in 2014, help the uninsured pay for private insurance coverage. But Republicans want to cut into the subsidies to help pay for a fiscal-cliff agreement.

Boehner went on to argue that the push to repeal the Affordable Care Act will be aided by strict congressional oversight. He also praised Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) for refusing to implement a state-based insurance exchange, but neglected to mention that the choice invites the federal government to operate Ohio's exchange.

"Iím proud of our governor and lieutenant governor for taking this stand and resisting the federal takeover of health care in Ohio. Repeal of the presidentís health care law is critically important to the economic future of our country," Boehner wrote.

2. Obamacare is NOT going to be on the table - your precious defense budget is, however, on the table

 

and ready to be cut by at least 90%.

And besides, ACA is constitutional - you, however, are not constitutional and should not even be serving on Congress.

6. What a toad.

President Obamaís health care law will save the government $84 billion over the next 11 years!

We can't afford NOT to implement "Obamacare."

12. Too bad he doesn't have a penis. It might help out right now.

 

He's a huge orange dickhead, but perhaps he could channel that dickhead thing into a penis if he had one. Women don't have this problem.
