Boehner wants to shelve health care ’monstrosity’



Published: Wed, November 3, 2010 @ 10:06 a.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republican Leader John Boehner is claiming a voter mandate to roll back the Obama administration’s health care overhaul, calling it a “monstrosity.”

The presumptive next speaker of the House told reporters this morning the Republican takeover of the House and its success in narrowing the Democratic Senate majority was proof that “the Obama-Pelosi agenda” was rejected by the American people.

The Ohio Republican is in line to succeed Pelosi, a California Democrat who became the first woman speaker of the House four years ago. Posing for pictures with GOP Whip Eric Cantor, Boehner said, “The American people were concerned about the government takeover of health care.” He added, “I think it’s important for us to lay the groundwork before we begin to repeal this monstrosity.”

I wish we could shelve John Boehner, the Tea Party and the Republican Party.

"John Boehner is a decent hard working fellow. A good Ohioan."

One donation under God.

Peacelover,"Ask someone who can't pay for their medical bills and/or prescriptions if the old way was good enough."

YOU can pay your medical bills via payment plans. Hospitals sometimes even right off a bill if a person has gone in and explained what they can afford.

As for prescriptions, people should learn how to be healthier rather then rely on pills to make them better. Other source, ever heard that Astra Zenica can help with your medications. There are websites for people that need help NeedyMeds.org is one.
Too many people want to complain rather then help themselves.

Everyone agrees that something needs done about health care. Just no one can agree what it is this law isn't the answer.

Not surprised that this is the republican answer. If you vote for the same people, you can expect the same results. Enjoy the ride...you voted for it!

The valley has been voting the same way for as long as I can remember and the result is that it is the '"armpit" of Ohio!

I diddnt vote because i realized a long time ago no matter what OBAMA wants the Republicans will refuse it.Im glad they and the tea baggers made it now maybe we in this country will see a real decline in our country. Im happy cuz we are the divided states of Amerikkka and there will be no progress in the next 2 years. But know since the conservative and repubs know it all lets see where we will go.

Nothing but gridlock and more bickering for the next two years. I expect nothing from this upcoming session of congress. Not sure how Republicans think they can change much of anything with a Democratic majority in the Senate and a Democrat in the White House. What is it they say about the more things change, the more they stay the same? Sorry...just not very optimistic at this point.

Obamacare isn't going to help you pay your medical bills. Your 20% will always be there. I had surgery that cost 70K. I have to pay 14k where in the heck am I going to get that money. Nothing that needed fixed was fixed. Well one thing was I do approve of the pre -existing condition/drop part. They said we could leave our kids on our insurance but the cost is twice as much and we are union. They need to cap what can be charged for procedures and medications that would be a huge step.

So many seem to have forgotten that this mess did not happen in two years. Bush dug this hole we are now in. As for healthcare.......under current laws no ins. co. will even cover me because of pre-existing medical conditions. That's not something that needs fixed??? Take a good look who is behind anti healthcare reform: Pharma companies and Health insurance co. If you believe otherwise you are truly blind. They own the republican party. Censorship: do you truly believe most meds are opiate based??? What about blood pressure med, diabetes med, heart.....etc., etc, etc. As Goman71 said........Gd help us. I have very little hope left for this country. All we have now is a new group of republican politicians who have pretty much stated their goal is to cause gridlock so nothing improves, and they can once again control the White House. If you are middle class, get ready to go down for the count. If you want to get even angrier I suggest you watch Michael Moore's documentary Capitalism. I don't want to even hear it from you right wingers, about Moore. I don't always agree with him......but this time he hit the nail on the head. It will turn any sane, intelligent persons stomach.

censorship, I find it very hard to believe that 70% of pharma drug contain an opiate base, and believe me I am no fan of pharma companies. Now, scripts written for pain relievers containing opiates or opiate-like ingredients may well be quickly on the rise. But most pharma do not contain an opiate base. Where on earth did that figure come from? You named a few narcotic pain relievers. I could name hundreds of meds used for blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, dozens of antibiotics, blood thinners, anti depressants, anti fungals, sulfa, etc......you can't really believe these contain opiates??!!
