Former House speaker John Boehner said Thursday that Republicans won't deliver on a years-long promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act, telling an audience at a health care conference that "repeal-and-replace" is "not going to happen," and that the GOP will instead fix the ACA's current framework. "I shouldn't call it repeal-and-replace, because it's not going to happen," Boehner told Politico. "Most of the framework of the Affordable Care Act ... that's going to be there," he added in the Politico interview. Boehner,...

Universities are the cradle of free speech, where ideologies and ideas clash, where academics and activists can agree, disagree, or be disagreeable. This is particularly true in the United States, where the First Amendment zealously guards against government surveillance and intrusion into free speech.
