Speaker Boehner Responds to Drudge Report – No Expansion of Obamacare (Video)

Speaker of the House John Boehner told Megyn Kelly tonight the House did not expand Obamacare as was reported on the Drudge Report.

Megyn Kelly: This weekend you got in a weird online argument with Matt Drudge, of the Drudge Report this weekend. Where he suggested the House Republicans expanded Obamacare with a voice vote last week. And a voice vote is controversial because it doesn’t really require the vote to go on record. You came out and said, “We didn’t expand Obamacare.” Here’s the bottom line. I trust Chris Firewall on FOX News. What he says is, “Conservatives are mad over this House passed fix because it mitigates some of Obamacare’s damages to small businesses and in essence what you’ve done is to allow Democrats to crow that they have finally broken the GOP blockade. Did you give on something you shouldn’t have given on?

Speaker John Boehner: Our goals all the way through this is to protect the American people from the awful effects of this law and to continue to work to try to repeal it. And, so over the last three years there’s probably been eight or nine changes to Obamacare that the president’s actually signed into law. This being one of them…

Megyn Kelly: You think it’s good. But the critics are saying good or not you broke the blockade of standing firm against any change.

Speaker Boehner: They’re have already been eight or nine changes over the last three years.

Megyn Kelly: So it’s not the end of the blockade?

Speaker Boehner: No.
