Shortly following the election, the House Speaker seemed to be ready to throw in towel on ObamaCare when he advised us that the hilariously titled “Affordable Care Act” was the law of the land. Having caught Hell over that remark, he has now changed his position. Here’s how he put in a subsequent editorial:
The president’s health care law adds a massive, expensive, unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our country’s entire economy. We can’t afford it, and we can’t afford to leave it intact.
Well, we already knew that, John. He goes on as follows:
Over the past couple of years, I have noted there are essentially three major routes to repeal of the president’s law: the courts, the presidential election process and the congressional oversight process. With two of those three routes having come up short, the third and final one becomes more important than ever.
But does Boehner or any other member of the establishment GOP have any credibility here? Nope. They need to be replaced by people with a real commitment to the Constitution and liberty in general.
