Boehner: 'What the hell is this, a joke?'

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) isn’t very happy about the Obama administration’s decision to extend the March 31 deadline to enroll in health insurance.

“What the hell is this, a joke?” Boehner said Wednesday at his weekly press conference.

He said that it is yet another deadline that’s meaningless and blasted the administration for not making an effort to make sure people getting the extension had actually begun the signup process.

“This is part of a longterm pattern of this administration manipulating the laws for its own convenience,” Boehner said. “It’s not hard to understand why the American people question this administration’s commitment to the rule of law.”
