Boehner still wants to repeal Obamacare. Or not.
Los Angeles Times

Here’s a sign of how tenuous a hold House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) has on his fellow Republicans: Seemingly every time he sounds a note of pragmatism, he has to follow up his remarks a few hours later to clarify that he’s not conceding a thing.

A good example comes in my colleague Lisa Mascaro’s story about an interview Boehner gave ABC News’ Diane Sawyer on Thursday. In addition to reiterating his opposition to higher tax rates, Boehner weighed in on the fate of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.
