Conservative congress members are urging Boehner and other house leaders to neuter Obama's healthcare law. Reps. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) and Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) have called on the speaker to defund Obamacare by refusing to pass any and all appropriations bills funding it.
Will Boehner do as they ask? The evidence suggests not. In the past two years, the speaker has overseen budget resolutions that actually fund Obamacare, as Breitbart's Matthew Boyle points out. Moreover, just this Sunday Boehner promised to avert government shutdown by extending the current continuing budget resolution until the end of 2013 (it's set to expire on March 27).
All of that rather undermines a claim made in 2011 by Boehner's spokesman, who said that the speaker was committed to overturning Obamacare using "every means at our disposal."
