Obama's Insurance 'Fix' Is Unconstitutional-Howard Dean saying of Obama suspending certain Obamacare requirements, “I wonder if he has the legal authority to do this.” NO: Take Care Clause of Constitution absolutely forbids any pres from doing exactly what Obama did 11/14. BO said he would allow insurance companies to keep offering previously-offered insurance plans. Says he has “enforcement discretion” to make change to ACA unilaterally w/out Congress- frightening claim of power
This is a frightening claim of a sweeping power that is completely inconsistent with the Constitution. A president has “prosecutorial discretion” to prioritize which lawbreakers to prosecute in federal court, but there is no “enforcement discretion” to determine which laws on the books he will enforce.
Will states accept Obama’s insurance exchange fix?
GOP congressman: No impeachment because -- 'Have you met Joe Biden?' >Trey Gowdy said his party can't impeach the president over his threatened immigration overhaul – but only because Biden would become president >The folksy Biden wants the top job for himself but Republicans see him as a potentially embarrassing one-man gaffe factory >One senior House GOP aide said Biden is 'two floppy shoes short of a complete clown outfit' and Obama's 'insurance policy'
