Boehner: 'Obamacare
is the law of the land'

NBC News, by Michael O'Brien

Original Article

Posted By:crabam, 11/8/2012 9:01:49 PM

Updated 6 p.m. ET - Republicans' efforts to undo President Barack Obama's health care reform law appear to have come to an end, as House Speaker John Boehner described it Thursday as the "law of the land." In an interview with ABC News, the nation's top elected Republican seemed to indicate that Congress wouldn't engage in the type of repeated repeal votes the way it had in the past two years. Boehner's office provided a transcript of the exchange: Sawyer: A couple of other questions about the agenda now. You have said next year that you would repeal the healthcare vote.

The dems have for their leaders extremists like Pelosi and Reid. We have milquetoast like Boehner. Why do we shoot ourselves in the foot with wishy washy crybabies like this guy? I am so glad I never contributed a dime to the republican party.

Imagine if we had someone as effective as San Fran Nan in our corner. Instead of a street fighter, GOP offers Rollover John, along with a SC chief justice who's probably got something to hide (see also David "Kelo" Souter).

Poor John. He has no power but doesn't know.

Obama and the Democrats own Washington. w/o the Senate the House can be ignored as it has been for two years.

Boehner should go home before the Secret Service harnesses him to pull Michelle and Bo in a rickshaw when she goes shopping.

You expect Boehner to do the impossible? Fighter or no fighter, it's pointless to keep having repeal votes when there's no way the senate will ever repeal. It sucks, but Republican voters did not get and vote on Tuesday so now we're stuck with it.

Why the speech yesterday signaling capitulation, after Harry Reid stated on Election day that if Romney won, he would not work with Romney?
Now this statement today.
The stupid ass doesn't realize that HE is a leader too.
Boehner must go..I said that 3 years ago, I say it again.
I was already so mad I could spit, as the realization of 4 more years of Obama sink in. Now this (self dleted)

Anything that was accomplished with dishonesty, graft, fraud and deceit must and WILL eventually wind up on the ash heap of history, regardless of how the chances for that appear at the moment. We don't know when Obamacare will be destroyed, but it will be. It matters not at all what John "I'll Cry Tomorrow" Boehner thinks or says. Obamacare is not long for this world. It may fester for several years, but it will not be permanent.

Pass a budget devoid of funding for OBambicare, the EPA, TSA, Dept of 'Education', and all the other useless acronyms, and tell the Senate and the Usurper 'take it or leave it'.

John Boehner is two "heartbeats" away from becoming President.

We should demand a strong Speaker...I don't think he's it.

(Just in case...I do not wish physical harm to anyone. I just finished "Killing Kennedy" and we could very well have lost both number's one and two that day in '63)

This is why the repubs will be on the losing end going forward. Their irrelevancy and go along to get along is what has killed this once great nation. Of course, guys like Boehner don't care. He'll get thrown out of Congress next election or the one after that (or retire) and be set with cash and benefits thanks to the same taxpayers he's helped destroy. The repubs are only one tiny step right of the Leftists.

Some of you need to drink some strong coffee and rub the sleep out of your eyes. Obamacare is here to stay thanks to John Roberts and Chris Christie. Get used to that fact. Boenner is nobodies fool. He and that wise Jew from Richmond are the only winners we've got. They also happen to be the only fellows standing between you and an unadulterated Marxist federal government. Remember that when you and listening/worshipping your buddy Mark Levin, the loser who has done nothing but foist losers upon us, Akin, O'Donnell, Moerdock, Angle, Palin... The list goes on!

Sorry folks. But republicans failed at the ballot box. Republicans turned out in lower numbers than they did in 08. Dont blame Boehner. Blame REPUBLICAN voters first, a stupid electorate second and the press third.

WE, the People, LOST at the polls at the hands of fellow Americans. If you want ObamaCare overturned, REPUBLICANS MUST turn out. But no..... the evangelicals wont vote for a Mormon and the libertarians and ideologically pure conservatives are holding out for either the perfect candidate or Ron Paul. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! These people sold out the country by holding out for a candidate not on the ballot!

When, not if, the health system collapses because of the cupidity of people like Sandra Fluke, and success in the Cloward-Pivensing of the American nation, doctors will resort to the barter system like in Cuba. It will revert back to a few-for-service economic model once more, even if done illegally. Thank you for nothing, blue state voters.

John Roberts and the electorate screwed us and Speaker Boehner. There is absoltely nothing any of the Republicans, Tea Partiers, true Americans can do in Congress or Washington to undo Obamacare. Those commenting above and complaining of Boehner's acknowledgment that Obamacare is the law of the land should review the Constitution. We are bound to it, until there is another revolution. Whether that happens remains to be seen.

I don't get it. Obama was just reelected and the Democrats still control the Senate. Boehner wakes up and declares that it is Thursday .... and gets roasted for it??? I swear, some of the comments are akin to "Horses! Horses! Damn those automobiles!"

Boehner can pass any budget he wants, with whatever Obamacare repeal clauses he wants, and it will be greeted just like the previous budgets. It will die in the Democrat Senate.

That's coffee. Time for all of us to take a big whiff.

There are still several challenges to Obamacare that will make it to the supreme court. It's not over by a long shot.

Odd that Roberts changed his mind at the last second. There's still more to this story that has not been written yet.

So...keep passing all those budgets with all the serious defunding of ObamaDeath, EPA, Dept of this, that, and the other. Draw the line. Make the distinction.

@ #29 - I have not looked at the election data. Had to take a break from this. Did Republicans actually turn out in smaller numbers of voters for Romney than McCain? After knowing about Barry the Fraud for 4 years and knowing what Hope and Change was really about?

Hey bone-head. If you just leave obamacare out of the budget, it dies. If the dims want to kick and scream, they can, but the house starts all funding bills, and nothing is funded unless you fund it. Hold tight and refuse to fund it or get out of the way and let someone else lead. Rolling up in the fetal position and handing your enemy the club to beat you with is not a good strategy.

Well, he's right, actually. John Roberts thought the case out like an law student: if the voters don't like Obamacare, they can repeal it. But easier said than done. To do it, the entire composition of Congress and the Presidency had to change. Did he expect the election to be a referendum on Obamacare alone? Because that was the only way the Republicans were going to be able to do enough to repeal the law.

There's the possibility that Roberts gave us an out by declaring that Obamacare is a tax. Per Article I, Section 7, all tax bills must originate in the House (the Origination Clause), and this one did not.

MUMBAI — India hanged a man on Saturday who had been convicted of involvement in the 2001 attack on Parliament that killed nine people. The hanging of Afzal Guru, a 43-year-old militant with the group Jaish-e-Mohammad, came more than a decade after the Dec. 13, 2001, suicide attack on India’s Parliament in which five gunmen opened fire, killing nine people, including security officials and a journalist. The execution drew protests from human rights groups concerned about the growing use of capital punishment in such cases.

What Gerard Depardieu is to France, Tina Turner may be to the United States. The Nutbush, Tenn. native is giving up her US passport, in favor of a Swiss one. "I´m very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here. ... I cannot imagine a better place to live," Turner told the German newspaper Blick. Turner has lived in the Zurich suburb of Kuesnacht since the mid-1990s. The local Zuerichsee-Zeitung newspaper said on its website the local council announced its decision to grant the 73-year-old Turner citizenship in an official notice published in Friday's edition.The decision still requires formal approval from state and federal authorities.Turner's rep told Zuerichsee-Zeitung the singer wanted to "clarify her situation."

BUDAPEST, Hungary -- A Hungarian far-right politician urged the government to draw up a list of Jews who pose a "national security risk", stirring outrage among Jewish leaders who saw echoes of fascist policies that led to the Holocaust. Marton Gyongyosi, a leader of Hungary´s third-strongest political party Jobbik, said the list was necessary because of heightened tensions following the brief conflict in Gaza and should include members of parliament.

DUBLIN: Thousands of people rallied outside Ireland´s parliament on Wednesday to demand strict abortion rules be eased after a pregnant Indian woman repeatedly denied a termination died in an Irish hospital. Savita Halappanavar, 31, admitted to University Hospital Galway in the west of Ireland last month, died of septicaemia a week after miscarrying 17 weeks into her pregnancy. Her repeated requests for termination were rejected because of the presence of a foetal heartbeat, her husband told state broadcaster RTE.

If the U.S. government ends up careening off the "fiscal cliff," Republicans in Congress stand to shoulder most of the blame, according to a new poll released Tuesday. A majority of Americans said in a new, post-election poll that they do not expect President Barack Obama and members of Congress to reach an agreement to avoid the effects of the fiscal cliff, the combination of automatic spending cuts and tax hikes set to take effect at the beginning of the year.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t
