Former House speaker predicts ‘Obamacare’ won’t be repealed

“Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted on Thursday that a full repeal and replacement of “Obamacare” is “not going to happen.”

The Ohio Republican, who was forced out by conservatives in 2015, said he started laughing when he heard President Donald Trump and Republicans promise swift action on undoing and replacing the health law.

“Republicans never ever agree on health care,” Boehner said.

Congressional Republicans are “going to fix Obamacare — I shouldn’t call it repeal-and-replace, because it’s not going to happen,” he said. “Most of the framework of the Affordable Care Act … that’s going to be there.”

Boehner spoke at a health care conference in Orlando, Florida. His remarks were reported by Politico.”
