Boehner Admits Behind Closed Doors: Republicans Will Never Repeal Obamacare (VIDEO)
Former House Speaker, John Boehner said the GOP won’t be able to repeal and replace Obamacare at a closed-door tradeshow in Las Vegas, NV Friday.
John Boehner told a private crowd that Obamacare will never be repealed or replaced by the GOP because Americans and state officials are used to it in, a video obtained by The Washington Post.
Boehner also warned that Republicans will get annihilated in 2018 midterm elections if they fail to pass healthcare and tax legislation.
“Here we are, seven months into this year, and yet they’ve not passed this bill. Now, they’re never…they’re not going to repeal and replace Obamacare. It’s been around too long. And the American people have gotten accustomed to it. Governors have gotten accustomed to this Medicaid expansion, and so trying to pull it back is really not going to work.”
Boehner suggested that if the GOP can’t get rid of Obamacare completely, to at least eliminate the mandate and some of the taxes.
“When it’s all said and done, you’re not going to have an employer mandate anymore, you’re not going to have the individual mandate. The Medicaid expansion will be there. The Governors will have more control over their Medicaid populations and how to get them care, and a lot of Obamacare taxes will probably go.”
