House Speaker John Boehner says the only way to fix President Barack Obama’s health care law is to scrap it entirely.

Boehner says the law has forced health coverage to be canceled and the costs of premiums to rise. He says the Obama administration can’t be trusted on the issue.

The Ohio Republican spoke Thursday, shortly before Mr. Obama planned to reveal his plan for letting insurance companies continue health coverage that they have been canceling for millions of Americans.

“The only way to fully protect the American people is to scrap this law once and for all. There is no way to fix this.”- House Speaker John Boehner
