Boehner Puts Obamacare on the Table

John Boehner

Boehner wrote in the Cincinnati Enquirer yesterday that Obamacare must be on the table in any fiscal negotiations.

He said that there are only three roads to repealing Obamacare: the courts, the election process, and congressional oversight. He said that with two of the options gone, it makes congressional oversight more important than ever, adding that strong state leadership must also be present.

This would be a difficult path to repealing Obamacare but it is our last hope to rid ourselves of the socialist healthcare system that will forever change our Republic into a socialist nation. Obamacare will lead to a single payer system.

  • We already face a severe doctor shortage and with Obamacare, we can expect to be short 20,000 doctors over the next 15 years.
  • Obamacare taxes research, innovation and medical equipment. There are almost a trillion dollars worth of taxes in Obamacare which largely affect the middle class.
  • Premiums are skyrocketing and businesses are putting people on part-time employment or taking the fine. That will leave people nowhere to go but to the government. Eventually, that will cause the demise of health insurance companies and we will all get to be on government insurance.
  • We will have no opportunity for judicial review if we disagree with Obamacare protocols or if we cannot get the help we need in a timely manner.
  • Obamacare takes $716 billion from future Medicare payments and puts seniors’ healthcare under the 15 member IPAB.
  • Obamacare is not about healthcare. It is about a government takeover of one-sixth of the economy and that which is most important to us – our health.

President Obama has won re-election, but his healthcare law is still driving up costs and making it harder for small businesses to hire workers. As was the case before the election, Obamacare has to go.

If we’re serious about getting our economy moving again, solving our debt and restoring prosperity for American families, we need to repeal Obamacare and enact common-sense, step-by-step reforms that start with lowering the cost of health care.

The president’s health care law adds a massive, expensive, unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our country’s entire economy. We can’t afford it, and we can’t afford to leave it intact.

Over the past couple of years, I have noted there are essentially three major routes to repeal of the president’s law: the courts, the presidential election process and the congressional oversight process. With two of those three routes having come up short, the third and final one becomes more important than ever.

Vigorous oversight of the health care law by the House can be expected and, in fact, is already under way. The House Ways & Means Committee recently issued a subpoena directing that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services turn over any and all information regarding how taxpayer dollars have been used to promote Obamacare…keep reading…
