WASHINGTON — In case Senate Republicans weren’t already having enough trouble rounding up votes to repeal and replace Obamacare, here comes ex-House speaker John Boehner with a prediction that the GOP will “never” succeed in their quest to kill the law.
“Now, they’re never — they’re not going to repeal and replace Obamacare,” Boehner said at a private speech in Las Vegas, according to The Washington Post, which obtained video of the Republican’s remarks.
Of course they’re not. They don’t want to, which ought to be obvious to even the meanest intelligence by now. Anybody who still insists on believing that we have anything even resembling a “two-party system” in this country is a damned fool.
Government health care, once implemented, has never yet been removed anywhere on Earth except by violent revolution—if then. This country will be no different; “American exceptionalism” stops right here, folks.
