Speaker John A. Boehner said Thursday Republicans are working on a plan to “protect” and “provide peace of mind” to individuals enrolled in federal health care exchanges who may lose health subsidies after the Supreme Court rules in King v. Burwell. “Well, clearly, we’re interested in protecting those millions of Americans who could lose their subsidies, but as I said, we are not interested in protecting a fundamentally broken law,” he said. When pressed about pushing legislation likely to fail, Boehner reiterated Obamacare is “broken” and that members “have an obligation to do what our constituents ask of us.”
