WASHINGTON – GOP lawmakers say President Obama’s proposed fix for the Affordable Care Act doesn’t go far enough. House Speaker John Boehner unveiled the GOP’s alternative: scrap Obamacare in favor of a first aid kit in every home.
“It’s affordable, and it covers pre-existing conditions,” Boehner explained. “Each kit will be required to have bandages, headache medications, and pills for stomach aches.”
Boehner said the GOP’s plan would render treatment “more accessible than ever.” He explained: “No more waiting to get in to see your physician. Now, just open the first aid kit and reach for the cure.”
