Boehner on Obamacare Delay: ‘What The Hell Is This, a Joke?’ (Video)

Speaker John A. Boehner lambasted the Obama administration again Wednesday over the Affordable Care Act, this time for extending the health care insurance enrollment period beyond March 31 for individuals who had begun, but not completed enrollment.  

“Last night brought us yet another delay of Obamacare,” the Ohio Republican said at his weekly press conference. “Another deadline made meaningless. The administration is now resorting to an honor system to enforce it. What the hell is this, a joke?”

As enrollment has surged on the federal exchanges over the last few weeks, House Republicans continue to work on an alternative to the Democrats’ law.  

“I’ve got to live by the law, you’ve got to live by the law, the American people have to live by the law and guess what? The president needs to live by the law as well.”
