Boehner: O-Care a 'sucker punch' to economy

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday said the Obama administration's latest report about the impact of ObamaCare shows the health law will crush U.S. economic growth.

Boehner took to the House floor to respond to a report the administration released late Friday about the health law — a report House Republicans requested. He said the report shows that while Obama has said the law would reduce insurance premiums by thousands of dollars per family, the reverse is now expected to happen.

"Instead, according to the administration's own bookkeepers, premiums will go up for two out of three small businesses in our country," Boehner said. "This amounts to about 11 million employees who are going to see more money coming out of their paycheck for their health insurance every month."

He said that means about 11 million more people will pay more for health insurance.
