Boehner: GOP will do ‘everything we can’ to thwart ObamaCare

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) doubled down against ObamaCare in an interview set to air Sunday, calling the law “bad for America” and vowing to fight its implementation. 

“ObamaCare is bad for America,” Boehner told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “We’re going to do everything we can to make sure it never happens.” 

Boehner’s comments come several days after the House voted to delay the law’s employer and individual mandates over a White House veto threat.   

The votes mark nearly 40 times that House Republicans have sought to defund, dismantle or repeal healthcare reform. 

Democrats have accused the GOP of mounting a campaign to sabotage the law’s implementation. 

Boehner criticized the administration for choosing to delay the law’s employer mandate for one year. 

The decision means that larger businesses will not be required to provide healthcare coverage until 2015. 

It will affect only a handful of workers, since most companies of more than 50 employees already offer health insurance.
