Republicans split on how to handle Obamacare after president’s re-election
House Republicans are publicly infighting about what to do about Obamacare in the wake of President Barack Obama’s re-election last week.
House Speaker John Boehner has now backed off his promises to repeal the president’s health care reform law – at least until a Republican is elected president.
“Well, I think the election changes that,” Boehner told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer when asked if he would still pursue repealing the law.
“It’s pretty clear that the president was reelected, Obamacare is the law of the land. I think there are parts of the healthcare law that are going to be very difficult to implement and very expensive.”
