House Speaker John Boehner on Monday said he hopes the Supreme Court overturns President Obama’s health care reform law. The high court on Monday agreed to hear challenges to the law. Here’s Boehner’s full statement:
“The American people did not support this law when it was rushed through Congress and they do not support it now that they’ve seen what’s in it. In keeping with our Pledge to America, Republicans have voted to repeal and defund the law, and successfully repealed portions of it. This government takeover of health care is threatening jobs, increasing costs, and jeopardizing coverage for millions of Americans, and I hope the Supreme Court overturns it.”
