Former U.S. House Speaker John Boehner predicts a full repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act is "not going to happen."

The Ohio Republican was forced out by conservatives in 2015. Boehner says he started laughing when he heard President Trump and Congressional Republicans promise swift action.


Boehner spoke at a health care conference in Orlando, Florida. Boehnersaid if the law was repealed before it was replaced, Republicans would never be able to agree on a replacement plan.
