Appearing on Fox's Your World with Neil Cavuto, House Republican John Boehner (R-OH) highlighted a new report released today entitled "ObamaCare: Three Months of Broken Promises" that measures the law's across-the-board failure to live up to Democrats' specific promises on creating jobs, lowering costs, reducing the deficit, and protecting seniors' benefits. Boehner reiterated his commitment to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with common-sense solutions to lower costs and protect American jobs. He also called new plans by Democrats to raise taxes on middle-class families to pay for more government spending "unconscionable." And lastly he discussed the leadership change in Afghanistan and pushed for quick action on a troop funding bill to help our men and women in uniform fighting in harm's way.

BOEHNER RELEASES REPORT OUTLINING OBAMACARE'S THREE MONTHS OF BROKEN PROMISES:

"I issued a report today ... the actual broken promises of ObamaCare in just the first three months. Remember, the President said 'if you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it.' Well, now we know that that's not true. The President said that this would lower the deficit in the out years, and now we know from his own people that, as well, is not true. He also said that this would lower the cost of health insurance, and now we find out from the actuaries in the Administration, that that's not true either. There are a whole host of broken promises coming out of this Administration. This healthcare bill is a disaster for our country, a disaster for our healthcare system, and will bankrupt our country. That why Republicans continue to believe we need to repeal ObamaCare, and replace it with common-sense insurance reforms that'll bring down the cost of health insurance and protect American jobs."

BOEHNER EXPRESSES REPUBLICANS' COMMITMENT TO REPEALING OBAMACARE & REPLACING IT WITH BETTER SOLUTIONS:

"We will ... make sure that this monstrosity never takes on a life of its own. I admit that it will be difficult, but I'm going to tell you that, if I'm the Speaker of the House and Republicans are in the Majority, we will do everything to keep this bill from ruining our economy and bankrupting our kids. There are common-sense things we can do and why not do them?"

BOEHNER SAYS MIDDLE-CLASS TAX HIKES ARE "UNCONSCIONABLE":

"The President said, 'I'm not going to tax anyone who makes less than $250,000 a year.' He's violated it several times already, and now apparently, Democrats here in Congress are going to violate it for him by allowing some expiring tax credits to, in fact, expire. ... But you're going to see middle-class tax hikes coming out of this Congress and it's unconscionable."

BOEHNER SAYS DEMS' JOB-KILLING POLICIES 'FLY IN THE FACE OF COMMON SENSE':

"I don't know what school of economics my colleagues went to on the Democratic side, but when you raise the cost of employment, you have less employment. And the American people today are asking the question, 'where are the jobs?' When you raise taxes, you make it more difficult for employers to hire people. When you put mandates on employers for healthcare, and increase taxes, and penalties if you don't comply, you raise the cost of employment, you're going to have less of it. If we want to get our economy going again, we need to get more money in the hands of American families and small businesses. This flies completely in the face of any common sense."

BOEHNER DISCUSSES GEN. MCCHRYSTAL'S DEPARTURE AND GEN. PETRAEUS' APPOINTMENT:

"I think the President was right in making his decision. I have great deal of respect for Stan McChrystal, I think he's an outstanding general, and he was the right man for the job, but he made a very big mistake. If the Commander-in-Chief doesn't have confidence in his field commander, the President certainly has the right to make a decision to make that change. I think putting David Petraeus in there is also the right move. But we need to remember something, Neil, we shouldn't be distracted by what's happening at the top. Our men and women in the military, in Afghanistan, are faced with the most difficult part of this mission, and we need to make sure that they have everything they need to be able to accomplish their mission. It's important for the future, for our kids and grandkids, important to the security of this country. This is why Congress ought to pass the supplemental spending bill to make sure our troops do, in fact, have all the tools necessary in order to be successful in their mission."
