House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) on Sunday did not rule out including some parts of 'Obamacare' in a potential replacement plan, although he emphatically stated his commitment to repealing the entire law first.
On CBS' Face The Nation, he was asked if he believes there's "anything good" in the law.
"Well there's always going to be parts of it that are good," Boehner said. "But when you look at the 2,700 pages that no one read, and you know, remember, Nancy Pelosi said well we have to pass this before we know what's in it. Republicans are not going to go down that path."
Boehner said he supports the provision letting Americans under 26 years old to remain on a parent's insurance policy, pointing out that some insurance companies have opted to keep that provision regardless.
He declined to elaborate on how specifically Republicans would prefer to address health care, saying several times that the party will take a "common sense, step by step approach."
The Affordable Care Act, he said, "has to be ripped out by its roots" so Congress can "start over."
