WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Representative John Boehner, expected to be named the next speaker of the House of Representatives, vowed on Wednesday to repeal health care reforms pushed into law by the Obama administration.

"I believe that the healthcare bill that was enacted by the current Congress will kill jobs in America, ruin the best healthcare system in the world, and bankrupt our country," Boehner, an Ohio Republican, told a news conference. "That means we have to do everything we can to try to repeal this bill and replace it with common sense reforms to bring down the cost of health care.

The best healthcare system in the world!!! As long as you don’t measure by standards such as number of people with access to health care, quality of health care available, average life expectancy, obesity rates, cost of basic health care, etc…

Gotta love that blatantly untrue propaganda!
