  • Boehner Says GOP Will 'Never' Repeal Obamacare: 'It's Been Around Too Long'

If Republicans fail to pass legislation on health care, taxes and infrastructure, "they're going to get annihilated" in next year's midterm elections, he said. "Now, they're never - they're not going to repeal and replace Obamacare", Boehner said.

Speaking at a Thoughtspot trade show at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino last week, the former OH congressman said Republicans have taken too long to make good on their health care promises - and their moment has now passed. "And the American people have gotten accustomed to it. Governors have gotten accustomed to this Medicaid expansion, and so trying to pull it back is really not going to work".

In his remarks, Boehner predicted that GOP lawmakers might be able to nix certain provisions of Obamacare, but not the entire law - despite the GOP's oft-repeated promise over the last seven years to wipe the Affordable Care Act off the books.

"The Medicaid expansion will be there", Boehner said. He also expected governors will get more control over Medicaid in their states.

Not only that, he had some choice words for his "friend" President Trump.

Boehner was asked to explain why House Republicans did not support House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to succeed Boehner as speaker. "You all know what I mean", he told the room as the audience laughed.

"You never get into a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel. He does it every day".

He noted that the now-president used to call him and encourage him if the former speaker had a bad day at the office. "Well, that's gone. Everything today is instant".

Boehner pointed to the fragmentation of the national media as another reason for the paralysis and what he sees as alarming intensity and partisanship in politics.

Boehner made the comments last week at a private event in Las Vegas, reported The Post, which obtained video footage of the gathering.

"These radio talk show guys, they carry on, it's just nonsense", Boehner said.

"Gee, thanks", Boehner said, reciting what Ryan texted him.
