Well, no shit, really:
Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted on Thursday that a full repeal and replace of Obamacare is “not going to happen.”
Boehner, who resigned in 2015 amid unrest among conservatives, said at an Orlando health care conference that the idea that a repeal-and-replace plan would blitz through Congress is just “happy talk.”
Instead, he said changes to former President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement would likely be relatively modest.***
On Thursday, Boehner said the talk in November about lightning-fast passage of a new health care framework was wildly optimistic.
“I started laughing,” he said. “Republicans never ever agree on health care.”
“Most of the framework of the Affordable Care Act … that’s going to be there,” Boehner concluded.
I don’t care if he and I think it isn’t going to happen, it could, and that is what matters. Keep beating them up. Keep showing up at town halls and jeering them. Keep talking to cardboard cutouts when they are too chickenshit to show up to town halls. Keep organizing, keep yelling, keep beating them about the head and neck. They need to pay an even higher political price for trying to take away your health care than the Democrats did trying to help you gain access to health insurance and health care.
Fuck these people. They’re running scared, and instead of letting up, keep the pressure on and keep nipping at their heels as they try to escape. Sherman didn’t say “well, we’re close to Atlanta, that’s good enough. I think they know we’re serious.” He knew the only thing the confederates would understand was brute force. And these descendants of those assholes are the same god damned way. Keep throwing molotov cocktails and burn the shit down. No one ever told me in basic training it was a bad thing to shoot the people who are trying to kill you in the back as they run. Fuck ’em. Let’s take back the House, the Senate, and the statehouses.
