INSKEEP: As you know, Democrats are already pointing to things that are changing in America because of this bill. They will point to the fact that college seniors, who would have been kicked off their families’ insurance plans when they graduated, will get to stay on. Insurance companies are now saying they’re going to end the practice of “rescission,” where they take, or at least modify…

BOEHNER: Both of those ideas, by the way, came from Republicans, and are part of the common sense ideas that we ought to have in the law.

INSKEEP: Well, are you going to repeal those two specific things?

BOEHNER Uh, what I want to repeal are the other 158 mandates, commissions, boards that set up all the infrastructure for the government to take control of our health care system. [emphasis added]

I’ll take “We’d repeal it but if we can’t we’ll take credit for it” for 800, Alex!

    the entire republican game plan is to throw as much shite at the wall as possible and see what sticks. they've done this on every fecking issue possible. the dems need to come up with a buzz phrase in response. every time a goper opens their mouth a democrat shouts something like, “frog vomit!” the american people would “get” this, be entertained and begin to see politics as fun and the democrats as likable.

    I heard this on the way to work this morning. The wrongheaded boldness was breathtaking.
