Boehner: 'ObamaCare' must be on the table in 'fiscal cliff' negotiations
Quote: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 can’t afford it, and we can’t afford to leave it intact," Boehner wrote in the Cincinnati Enquirer. "That’s why I’ve been clear that the law has to stay on the table as both parties discuss ways to solve our nation’s 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.

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

The stupidity from Republicans never, ever stops
I guess they've never read this or, more likely, they just don't care.

Quote: What Does ObamaCare Cost?

What is the cost of ObamaCare? ObamaCare, Obama's new health care law, is said to have a massive cost for the American government. ObamaCare's cost is estimated at up to $2 trillion dollars in the next 10 years. The truth is that Obamacare will save the government money by reducing the health care costs of many Americans via a national healthcare plan that will actually help to decrease the national deficit.

Obamacare is projected to cut the national deficit by over $100 billion during it's first 10 years and over $1 trillion over the next two decades.

When did a Republican ever let the truth get in the way of one of their nation hurting schemes?

Creep

Confirmed, Fox "news" makes you stupid

The ones you are noticing are more terrified than anything else. They are lashing out because they are comfortable; and to acknowledge what is happening is a threat to that comfort. Ignore them, for they are not the voices that will rise in the coming days, months and years. They are not the voices of our collected humanity. They are the old voices of fear and impotence. - Anonymous

We must stand firm on expanding Medicaid to adults. Without that provision, this reform will never work. Everybody has got to have preventive health care in order for costs to start going down.

He's playing to the base, but even worse, he's showing the nation the Rethugs haven't learned a thing from their crushing defeat and still plan on moving backwards.

Boehner must have been in bottom of a bourbon bottle the past couple of weeks.

Nobody told him that the GOP lost.
