.................that thing called Obamacare.

Quote:
"Over this Thanksgiving holiday, the president slipped into the federal register, another 334 pages of changes he's making to the law," .......

"Some of them are regulatory changes, but some of them actually lawlessly change Obamacare itself," she explained.

"For example, changing the rules, the legal requirements for large employers — another one requiring that insurance companies cover out-of-network doctors as if they were in-network doctors for a period of time — that's not in the law," she said.

"Requiring that people with high-risk pool insurance [as in pre-existing conditions] is now going to be considered minimum essential coverage," she added.

According to McCaughey, "a lot of these [changes] are in the weeds, but they're actual changes to the law, and . . . the high court is going to be watching this because it wasn't just one example of presidential lawlessness, the justices are seeing it again and again and again."

The Supreme Court picked up an Obamacare lawsuit alleging that the Obama administration violated the healthcare law by offering subsidies through the federalmarketplace, when such subsidies are only supposed to be allowed via the state-run exchanges.

Let a Republican president propose Congress pick up legislation for something the left does not like, and the media blasts him for overreach.

They cheer Obama on for tying chains onto the system. The more he operates in an autocratic manner and unilaterally , the more they love him. They will begin regretting this in 2017.

Read closer: This is a sweet deal for REPUBLICANS (ie, the ones who run the insurance companies) on the backs of the American taxpayers.

So you want me to believe that Obamacare supporters support Republicans making even more money on the backs of the poor and working people?

Why didn't the Ds do away with the sweet deals for insurance companies when they passed OCare?

The had the power. Hell, they had all 3 branches of gov't for 2 years. Were they sleeping?

No, they just exposed who they really are... all about propping up the rich at the expense of their own voter base. Keeping as many people as poor as possible, and therefore perpetually voting Democrat, guarantees political power for Ds. Think the seemingly insurmountable electoral college blue wall...

No, they are just ignorant as to what is/was really going on.

Don't know. Probably trying to placate the Rs as they usually do. If there were awake maybe we would have at least a single payer option.

That's laughable. Not a single R voted for it. Obama to the R's: "I won."


No, this giveaway to rich insurance companies is all Obama's and the Dems' baby. Not one single R vote. Only Dems voted to enrich insurance companies, exposing their true selves... they're all about propping up the rich at the expense of their own voter base. Keeping as many people as poor as possible, and therefore perpetually voting Democrat, guarantees political power for Ds. Think the seemingly insurmountable electoral college blue wall...

Do you get that? Income inequality is worse with Obama as president than it was when Bush was president.

Now, ask yourself... for which party do the poor overwhelmingly vote? Do you get it, yet? The more poor people there are, the more votes Ds get.

Obama is truly like a cockroach -- he likes to do his dirty work in the dark, and scrambles the minute the lights come on.

Even the NY Post got a few punches in on the human punching bag we have in the Blight House.

It's a good thing that Obama didn't campaign on being the most transparent president in history, or this would REALLY look bad.
