While the House of Representatives passed a bill yesterday to repeal Obamacare, the bill will have a difficult time passing the Democratic-run Senate, and President Obama is almost guaranteed not sign it into law. Speaking at a press conference at the Capitol this morning, House speaker John Boehner did not endorse a piecemeal repeal of the current health care law. Boehner was asked if House Republicans would aim to repeal the law by repealing individual provisions one-by-one.

"Our goal is to stop the job-destroying health care bill," Boehner said. "And we’re going to use all of the legislative tools that we have available to us so that we can in fact stop it." The speaker stopped short of endorsing a partial repeal of the bill or repealing particular provisions like that which funds abortions through taxes.

Jeffrey Anderson explained earlier this month why Republicans should go full speed ahead on repealing Obamacare:

...Republicans should be extremely careful not to send any partial-repeal bills to President Obama that he'd be wise to sign, hoping that he'll be foolish enough to pass on the opportunity to make his centerpiece legislation more popular and thereby to enhance his reelection prospects and the chances of Obamacare's ultimate survival (which are one and the same). A bill repealing the Medicare Advantage cuts is exactly the sort of thing that Obama would be wise to sign and which therefore should not be sent to his desk. Republicans should keep it simple: Obamacare was passed as "comprehensive" legislation – how many times did we hear that noxious term? – and it needs to be repealed comprehensively.
