Appearing on 60 Minutes this Sunday, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell reminded us that the GOP plan to replace Obamacare is actually just a notion – that still needs planning – when they all meet together sometime in the near future to work that stuff out.
The optics of the interview were pretty disastrous, and it all started when host Scott Pelley pressed them on their claims that they plan to uproot the ACA (Affordable Care Act) and replace it with something better.
Boehner was the first to respond, and he didn’t seem too confident:
We’re — we’re working on this. Having discussions amongst our members, got a lot of divergent views about how best to go back to a doctor/patient relationship that’s revered, about rewarding medical professionals as opposed to all those rules that are coming down and frankly driving doctors out of the system.
Yeah, that sounds solid.
