Boehner: Only Health Care Fix is to Scrap Law

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP)- House Speaker John Boehner says the only way to fix President Barack Obama's health care law is to scrap it entirely.
 
Boehner says the law has forced health coverage to be canceled and the costs of premiums to rise. He says the Obama administration can't be trusted on the issue.
 
The Ohio Republican spoke shortly before Obama planned to reveal his plan for letting insurance companies continue health coverage that they have been canceling for millions of Americans.
 
Obama is expected to propose administrative changes that would not require congressional approval.
 
But Boehner says he doesn't believe there is anything Obama can do administratively that would be effective.
 
The House plans to vote Friday on a GOP bill to let insurers continue coverage they've been canceling. Democrats oppose the bill.
