House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said Thursday that President Barack Obama was right to apologize that some people are seeing their health coverage canceled as a result of the Affordable Care Act, but he shouldn’t stop there.
Boehner said in a statement that the “very least” Obama can do is support legislation that would allow “allow anyone with a health care plan they like to keep it.”
“An apology is certainly in order, but what Americans want to hear is that the president is going to keep his promise,” Boehner said in a statement. “That’s why the House will vote next week to allow anyone with a health care plan they like to keep it. If the president is sincerely sorry that he misled the American people, the very least he can do is support this bipartisan effort. Otherwise, this apology doesn’t amount to anything.”
