Tea party activists are planning to rally outside of House Speaker John A. Boehnerâ€™s Ohio office on Tuesday, telling the Republican speaker that if he doesnâ€™t use this yearâ€™s spending fight to defund the health care law, it will hence be known to them as â€œBoehnerCare.â€
â€œIf he funds it, he will own it,â€ said Janet Porter, president of Faith2Action, one of the groups participating in the rally.
Republicans have routinely called the health law Obamacare, and even President Obama has embraced the term, using it himself as recently as last week in talking about the benefits, which are slated to kick in fully next year.
But Mr. Boehner now finds himself in the cross-hairs. Earlier this summer members of Congress got themselves and their staffs exempted from having to pay out of their own pockets for the health â€œexchanges,â€ though they will still be forced out of their government plans and into the health marketplaces.
