GOP boycotts health care advisory board

(Continued)

Asked why the House was voting a 37th time to repeal what Republicans call "Obamacare," even though GOP leaders know the Democratic-controlled Senate will again ignore the vote, Boehner said there were about 70 new members of the House this year. "Frankly they have been asking for an opportunity to vote on it, and we are going to give it to them."

He said he supports total repeal of the law rather than efforts to amend it as it goes into effect over the next year. "I don't believe there is a way to fix this and make it acceptable to the American people."
