In an appearance this morning on Fox News Americas Newsroom, House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) took Washington Democrats to task for continuing to pursue a government takeover of health care that raises costs, increases taxes, cuts Medicare benefits, and piles more debt on our kids and grandkids. Boehner noted that even with Democrats costly government takeover of health care more unpopular than ever, This not the time to give up. This is the time to fight harder to make sure this never happens. In addition, a day after the Obama Administration announced its intent to import Guantanamo Bay terrorists to a facility in Northern Illinois, Boehner questioned how this decision would make America any safer. Following are video and excerpts from Boehners interview:
BOEHNER ON DEMS GOVT TAKEOVER OF HEALTH CARE: A RISKY PROPOSITION
Its pretty clear that the American people do not want any part of this health care bill. The President said yesterday that were on the edge of a dangerous precipice. Well, a precipice is the edge of a big cliff. This is a very risky proposition: to take 1/6 of our economy, health care that affects every single American, and to have the government basically take control of it. While it may not have public option, it may not have the Medicare buy-in, what it does have is over 100 commissions, mandates, bureaus that will require tens of thousands of new federal employees. Because its a set up, all to get ready for the government takeover of our health-care system.
BOEHNER SAYS THIS IS THE TIME TO FIGHT HARDER TO ENSURE AMERICAN FAMILIES ARE HEARD ON HEALTH CARE
The American people are speaking loudly and clearly. They do not want their Medicare cut. The 27,000 Medicare Advantage recipients in my district dont want their health care plan taken away from them. The American people do not want to pay higher taxes, they dont want to pay higher premiums for their health insurance. And my message today to the American people is to stay engaged in this. This is not the time to give up. This is the time to fight harder to make sure this never happens.
BOEHNER SAYS ITS DEMS JOB-KILLING POLICIES THAT HAVE AMERICANS SCARED TO DEATH
Its not just their national energy tax. Its all the spending and all the debt that is being piled up. And the American people are scared to death of what their government is doing to them. And theyre saying very clearly, Washington, just stop.
BOEHNER ON GITMO NORTH: HOW WILL IMPORTING DANGEROUS TERRORISTS MAKE AMERICA ANY SAFER?
The Administration has not made clear to the American people their plan to keep America safe. They have not outlined an overall policy on how we take on these terrorist threats and protect our citizens both here and abroad. And this move to take these detainees from Guantanamo, which is very safe prison one of the best prisons in the world and to move them to Illinois because they made some political commitment, is really going to make America less safe.
