Boehner Says Americans ‘Don’t Want Obamacare’ – House Vote Defunds Affordable Care Act
Claiming victory, House Speaker John Boehner hailed the House vote Friday to derail ‘Obamacare’ but continue funding the government. Boehner called President Barack Obama’s health care law ‘a trainwreck,’ that is ‘hurting the American people.’
Next week, the Senate is expected to begin debate on the spending bill, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., will strip out the health care language and send a bill back to the House that simply extends current spending.
If the Senate runs out the clock on the time for debate, the vote could come as late as next weekend, giving House GOP leaders less than 48 hours to respond.
