There he goes again!
After adamantly refusing to negotiate with Congressional Republicans seeking a delay of Obamacare mandates in order to avert a government shutdown last fall, Barack Obama has spent much of the last three months delaying, modifying, and ignoring his very own ‘signature’ health care law.
While Obama would not budge at all when it came to considering GOP concerns about the impact of Obamacare on the health of the American people, his resolve has been demolished by at- risk Democrats whose political prospects for the 2014 mid-term elections are turning to mush by the disastrous roll out and subsequent implementation of the unmitigated disaster known as the Affordable Care Act.
Rather than manning up to his failures and working with Congress to fix the Obamacare mess, Obama continues to attempt to fix tyranny with even more tyranny, as reported at the reference:
Hundreds of thousands of people whose health plans are being canceled because their coverage doesn’t meet Obamacare rules will be exempt next year from the U.S. mandate that all Americans carry medical insurance.
People losing coverage will now be allowed to buy bare-bones “catastrophic” insurance that the law usually limits to those younger than age 30, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said yesterday. Others can opt out completely without the threat of the fines being imposed next year on the uninsured as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”
The big question: Does the rule of law mean nothing to this renegade president? Or to the Congressional Republicans whom have been elected to oversee the executive branch of government?
