House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday that Republicans are still working on a plan to replace Obamacare that they can coalesce around.

“You know, the discussions about Obamacare and what the replacement bill would look like continue. We’re trying to build consensus around one plan,” the Ohio Republican told reporters. “Not there yet.”

The Affordable Care Act was enacted in March of 2010. In the more than four years since, Republicans have promised to “repeal and replace” the law but party leaders have not offered a health care reform plan of their own.
