WASHINGTON — House Republican Leader John Boehner is claiming a voter mandate to roll back the Obama administration's health care overhaul, calling it a "monstrosity."

The presumptive next speaker of the House of Representatives told reporters Wednesday morning the Republican takeover of the House and its success in narrowing the Democratic Senate majority was proof that "the Obama-Pelosi agenda" was rejected by the American people.

Republicans won control of the House in Tuesday's elections. Come January, Boehner is in line to succeed Rep. Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat who became the first woman speaker of the House four years ago.

"The American people were concerned about the government takeover of health care." Boehner said. "I think it's important for us to lay the groundwork before we begin to repeal this monstrosity."
