John Boehner says Obamacare will be on the table during the fiscal cliff talks
John Boehner is claiming that Obamacare will be on the table during the upcoming fiscal cliff negotiations, to which I say; yeah right!
John Boehner is now taking a stand which he knows will be popular with the base, but it is a position he knows will never amount to anything even as he spouts this nonsense.
Immediately after the election John Boehner admitted that Obamacare was the law of the land–and he was right–there is no backing away from this now. The American people have voted and they have declared–whether they know it or not–that they support Barack Obama’s signature tax increase legislation and there is nothing that John Boehner can do about it despite his posturing.
Sure the House could defund it, but if that were a real option it would have happened already and it didn’t. We will all now live with the ramifications of our vote on November 6th for better or for worse, Obamacare will remain intact, and the tax increases associated with the legislation will be implemented.
I have one thing to say to John Boehner; please do not insult our intelligence by stating you are going to fight against Obamacare during the fiscal cliff negotiations because we know better. You may talk a good game now, but talk is cheap and when push comes to shove Barack Obama will out maneuver you and you will blink just as you always do.
