John Boehner Takes Credit For “Common Sense” Parts Of Health Care; Previously Said It Had No GOP Ideas

Posted by | April 30, 2010 14:55 | Filed under: Top Stories

House Minority Leader John Boehner told NPR’s Steve Inskeep that the more popular parts of the health care reform bill were Republican ideas, which is funny, given that Boehner previously complained that there wasn’t “a single major GOP reform” in it.

Inskeep asked Boehner if he would also repeal some of the more popular and immediate parts of the bill, like allowing kids under the age of 26 to stay on their parents’ health care plans, or ending the insurance company practice of canceling coverage when someone gets sick.

Boehner said: “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.”

But in February, there wasn’t anything in the bill that met Boehner’s approval:

“Despite the President’s rhetoric, Democrats’ job-killing health care proposals do not implement a single major GOP reform that would lower costs for families and small businesses.”
