In an exclusive interview with ABC News today, House Speaker John Boehner said there would be no more attempts to repeal Obamacare. “Obamacare is the law of the land,” he said. “The election changed” the situation, said Boehner.
While some conservatives will no doubt see this as Boehner caving, it is also a testament to political realities: the Senate is Democrat, and so is the president. The chances of a repeal are zero. Nonetheless, Boehner’s remarks underscore the effect of this election in enshrining Obamacare into the American way of life.
