House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, says repealing the new healthcare law will be the Republican Party's top priority if they retake the House.
"They got everything else in the entire bureaucracy that they need to control our healthcare system … with the signing of this bill," Boehner said during an interview on WFLA's "Bud Hedinger Show." "That's why repealing this bill has to be our No. 1 priority."
Boehner insisted Monday that "we can repeal this healthcare bill," although it would "take the American people's engagement in this process with us to make it happen."
President Barack Obama would likely veto any attempt at repeal, but Boehner and other conservatives say that Republican lawmakers could refuse to fund the healthcare plan.
A new Rasmussen Poll shows that 58 percent of likely voters support repealing the law, while 38 percent oppose it.
Most voters have believed for months that the quality of health care will diminish if the plan becomes law and that costs will increase.
