The current Republican Speaker of the House will not repeal and replace Obamacare as promised, predicts the previous Republican Speaker of the House.

Congressional Republicans will “fix Obamacare,” former House Speaker John Boehner told a health care conference in Florida Thursday, POLITICO reports. “I shouldn’t call it repeal-and-replace, because it’s not going to happen,” he added.

“I started laughing,” Boehner said of claims Obamacare replacement will happen in the next few months. “Republicans never ever agree on health care.”

“Most of the framework of the Affordable Care Act…that’s going to be there,” he said.

He appears to be right. The current plan put forth by Republican leaders keeps many components of the Obamacare system Republicans once opposed.

The GOP leadership plan keeps the Obama mandate forcing insurers to cover pre-existing conditions, which is one of the major factors driving up health insurance premiums.

It also appears to keep Obama’s expansion of Medicaid. Instead of repealing the expansion of the welfare state, Republicans plan to make it a “block grant” program, giving states more flexibility in how they administer the money.

    I had hoped that Boehner would be satisfied to take the millions of dollars that he accumulated, in a job that paid a couple hundred thousand dollars per year, and just go away. But I guess once a RINO, always a RINO. I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama named a wing of his $1.5 billion Memorial Library after Boehner. He certainly earned it.

    The congress is still infected with RINOs that will continue to keep this country hamstringed to a welfare ideology and an uncontrollable national debit. Their main efforts are put forth maintaining their own security and not the freedom, security and economic safety of the UNION. Socialistic rhetoric and the centralization of power to the White House and the Houses of Congress will put us further in to a communist form of government with the continuous evil of domination by ISSIS like invasion and/or domination by our tyrannical leadership in Washington. I thought Trump would gain enough force behind him to overcome but the RINOs and their efforts to maintain the higher achy of their GOOD-OLD-BOY culture. The people are still MESMERIZED by their lying RINOs and continue to maintain them in power by name and not the constitutional mandates by forcing them into socialist slavery not a government by, for and of the people. The capitulation on Obama care ( a victory for Obama and the Dems) by congress and now some of the new Cabinet will weaken the people’s ability to regain control of the government and our own future. It is time to repeal Obama and form a government of freedom operated by the people by not bowing to socialist slavery under of a tyrannical government once again.

    Boehner, Bonehead, you should not have come out of the woodwork to show your incompetent liberal face. You are irrelevant, and so corrupt!!

  • Bud William

    Was he sober, or under the influence, when he said that? Crawl back under your rock “Bonner”.

  • Karll

    I’d love to see someone beat the bejesus out of that RINO phony.

    Here comes the coward and useless Boehner. He accomplished nothing but cave in to Obama and the democrats. He did damage to the GOP instead. I am glad he is gone.

    alas the drunk is back!

  • Dave Campbell

    Don’t know why you are all bashing Boehner on this point. You should be scared to death that he is being truthful.

    • ARJAY
