Speaker Boehner Defund Obamacare


With Washington hurtling toward the brink of another fiscal crisis, House Speaker John Boehner spoke Wednesday and set up a major showdown with the Democrat led Senate when he announced today that the House will vote as soon as Friday to send a continuing resolution to the Senate that permanently defunds the Affordable Care Act most commonly known as Obamacare.

Multiple times House republicans have tried to defund Obamacare but the Speaker insists that he will actually do it.

At a press conference Wednesday, Boehner said, “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.”

What do you think, can House Republicans really defund Obamacare and make it go away? Leave your comments below after the video:
