CINCINNATI, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, says repeal of the Affordable Care Act "has to stay on the table" in talks on solving the nation's "massive debt challenge."

Boehner, who led several efforts during the current session of Congress to repeal the healthcare reform law, said after the Nov. 6 election it is "the law of the land," but he wrote in an op-ed published by the Cincinnati Enquirer Tuesday the law "is still driving up costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire workers. As was the case before the election, Obamacare has to go."

"The tactics of our repeal efforts will have to change," Boeher wrote. "But the strategic imperative remains the same. If we're serious about getting our economy moving again, solving our debt and restoring prosperity for American families, we need to repeal Obamacare and enact common-sense, step-by-step reforms that start with lowering the cost of health care.

Boehner called the Affordable Care Act "disastrous" and said it "adds a massive, expensive, unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our country's entire economy."

Really, Slick? How do you use something for which you do not have the votes as a bargaining chip?


And what happened to ACA "is the law of the land," which you said only about a week ago?

5. I hope you're right. I think Obama really believes in "centrism," though.

3. "In an effort to preserve the Affordable Care Act
"In an effort to preserve the Affordable Care Act negotiating parties found it necessary to make deep cuts to social security and medicare. The military was left completely untouched because they are fighting for our freedoms."

6. When will we be free of military contractors, though?
Then again, they do provide just about the only jobs for U.S. manufacturing workers that there are.

7. Seems to me that politicians don't respect voters, once the election is over.
And, by "politicians," I don't mean only one side.
