House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, declined to say whether House Republicans would put forward their own health care proposal, when asked by the media Tuesday, Politico reports.

Boehner told reporters that the Senate was to blame for the limited legislative activity in the 113th Congress, which is set to be the least productive in history.

Republicans have continued to aggressively criticize the Affordable Care Act, yet have been unable to unify behind a viable alternative.

 

"Obamacare is a government-centered health care delivery system. That's not what the American people want," Boehner said when asked whether the House would offer its own replacement. "The American people want to be able to pick their own type of health insurance. They want to be able to pick their own doctors. They want to be able to pick their own hospital. That is what a patient-centered health care system looks like." 

Pushed on whether Republicans will put present health care legislation next year Boehner said, "We'll see."
