Boehner: 'Obamacare is the law of the land' - NBC Politics
Like the two-faced jackass would have ever seriously fought it. They're all on the same side, people. And it ain't ours.
I hope Reid goes ahead with his filibuster rules change in the Senate.
It will save us some of the embarrassment when we change it to simple majority to repeal Obamacare at our first opportunity!
You should try the whole quote unless you want to be seen as a dishonest partisan hack... oh.. too late for that huh?
"@SpeakerBoehnerObamaCare is law of the land, but it is raising costs & threatening jobs. Our goal has been, and will remain, #fullrepeal."
Has been for two and a half years, even.

He's already backed off from that statement.
I'll never understand why the Republicans didn't simply embrace the plan - it is, after all policy-by-policy the same plans pushed by the conservative Heritage Foundation for years, and adapted, not to mention implemented, by Mitt Romney in Massachusetts.
When the Democrats still were pushing for universal health care, this was the Republican alternative. It would have probably been best to actually co-opt the plan and take credit for it (ie, depriving Obama of the credit); their aforementioned presidential candidate would have been able to run on his most significant achievement as an executive.
But it appears this is impossible in the face of the rabid opposition of the far right of the Republican Party, which is convinced that it must oppose everything and anything that Obama does - even when he does things they agree with! This created many awkward moments for Mitt Romney during the general election, which taking stock of economic conditions should have been a Republican landslide.
but where is the money coming from?
All will be required to have health care.
It will be a "tax"
Those that pay no taxes will still be required to have it but will not need to pay the tax.
Where will the money come from?
If you have health insurance your employer co-pay will be taxed.
more taxes on those that work going to those that do not.
Oh they will pluck the money of the magic money tree they have in back of the whitehouse..
Here's the NEW Government monster that is going to be running your health care
look up in that one red triangle at the top left..........THE IRS
