Boehner: I Used to Sneak Into Obama White House

Boehner: I Used to Sneak Into Obama White House

"He's going to let Boehner roll him again.' You're dead before you even have an agreement".

Boehner's blast remained secret until an anonymous source leaked footage of the talk to The Washington Post.

"What's making everything even worse today is because we have so much news, people get to choose where they get their news", Boehner reportedly said.

"It's been around too long". "Governors have gotten accustomed to this Medicaid expansion, and so trying to pull it back is really not going to work". He also expected governors will get more control over Medicaid in their states.

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.

"I shouldn't have called it repeal and replace because that's not what's going to happen", Boehner said, according to CNN.

Boehner's pessimism stands in stark contrast to the current GOP leadership.

Former Speaker of the House John Boehner doesn't have an optimistic outlook on the future of the Republican health care bill now stalled in the Senate.

But every congressional effort at health care legislation this year has died as Republicans have failed to unite behind various versions of a replacement bill. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, plans a vote to start debating that legislation Tuesday.

While, Boehner stated then that he and Trump enjoyed a longstanding friendship, he was still baffled that the real estate mogul became president.

Mr Boehner's comments are a departure from Donald Trump's rhetoric saying "Obamacare is death".

He continued, "There are a couple of things you learn when you get into politics". He does it every day", the former congressman said, before adding, "Never get into a pissing match with a skunk. "You all know what I mean", he told the room as the audience laughed.

"It may have worked during the campaign".

"I never really saw him as president". Although he did not mention Jordan by name, it was clear Boehner was referring to him.

On Feb. 23, Boehner made a similar prediction during a health care conference in Orlando, Florida.
