Boehner: ObamaCare Is a Train Wreck, We Will Defund

‘It’s time to protect American families from this unworkable law’

Boehner: We Are Going To Defund ObamaCare (RealClearPolitics)

Speaker John Boehner announces House Republicans' plan to include defunding of Obamacare in a stopgap spending bill.

SPEAKER BOEHNER: The president thinks that American families and small businesses are doing just fine in this economy. Speech after speech is about justifying his failed policies. And one of his biggest failures is adding $6 trillion to the national debt. For decades, congresses and presidents have used the debt limit for legislation to cut spending, and even President Obama worked with us two years ago in the debt limit negotiations to put controls on spending. This year is not going to be any different. We're going to continue to do everything we can to repeal the president's failed health care law. This week, the House will pass a CR that locks the sequester savings in and defunds Obamacare. The president has signed seven bills over the last two and a half years to make changes to Obamacare, and I sincerely hope our friends in the Senate have plans to make this an eighth time. The law is a train wreck. The president has protected American big business. It's time to protect American families from this unworkable law.
