Disgraced former Republican House Speaker John Boehner laughed as he declared this week that a full repeal and replace of Obamacare is absolutely “not going to happen!”
I have a funny feeling that President Trump will have a different opinion!
“[Congressional Republicans are] going to fix Obamacare – I shouldn’t call it repeal-and-replace, because it’s not going to happen,” he said at an Orlando health care conference.
Boehner said that all the discussion in November about “lightning-fast” repeal and then passage of a new health care framework was “wildly optimistic”.
“I started laughing,” he said. “Republicans never ever agree on health care. Most of the framework of the Affordable Care Act … that’s going to be there,” Boehner stated.
Instead, he said the few changes to ObamaCare would likely be very modest.
LAUGHING??? He is such a waste of space! Boehner could have nipped ObamaCare in the bud, but he used it instead to raise money for his own re-election campaigns. He is a thief and a liar! He has done permanent damage to the citizens of the Unite States.
Boehner himself promised a full repeal and replacement on numerous occasions while he was the Republican speaker, and he oversaw more than 50 repeal votes.
A plethora of times, Boehner said, “Anything short of a repeal is unacceptable.”
HE WAS LYING THROUGH HIS TEETH!!!
“Our goal has been, and will remain, #fullrepeal,” Boehner tweeted.
ObamaCare is law of the land, but it is raising costs & threatening jobs. Our goal has been, and will remain, #fullrepeal.

Why do we continue to allow such trash to be elected? His district knew he was a liar, knew he was playing them for a fool, and they stil re-elected him.
Not all is lost though.
Rep. Mike Burgess, R-Texas who is working on an Obamacare replacement insisted Thursday that ObamaCare will be repealed, despite widening skepticism.
“Yeah, it’s gonna happen,” Rep. Mike Burgess, R-Texas, said at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday afternoon., “We will get it done.”.
I look forward to seeing Boehner with a dozen eggs on his face!
This is what a blatant liar and thief looks like. He says all this as cool as they come. Talk about a narcissistic idiot!
