Eleven attorneys general slam
Obama healthcare fixes as illegal

The Hill [DC], by Rebecca Shabad

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/3/2014 6:09:44 AM

Eleven GOP attorneys general say the Obama administration is breaking the law by repeatedly making changes to ObamaCare without going through Congress. The attorneys general specifically criticize President Obama´s executive action that allowed insurance companies to keep offering health plans that had been canceled for not meeting ObamaCare´s more rigorous standards. “We support allowing citizens to keep their health insurance coverage, but the only way to fix this problem-ridden law is to enact changes lawfully: through Congressional action,” the attorneys general wrote in a letter to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “The illegal actions by this administration

Comments:
Texas´s Greg Abbott was on Greta Van Susteren´s show last night making an articulate argument in support of the accusation.

The Hill website is the busiest flashing neon invasive site I´ve ever visited and I use every blocker available. BUT I persevered down through the article to find out which eleven states have joined. That is all I learned, however.

#1, there are adblockers for that problem. I use several with different browsers. I don´t get any popups at The Hill. If you want to email me, I can offer some help.

Im my opinion the precedent was set when they broke the law by passing Obamacare before knowing what´s in it! Now he thinks he has free reign to do whatever he pleases. Isn´t that what impeachment stops?

Apparently the only Republicans with both brains and courage are in the state governments of red states. And given the fact this country is a republic in which the states have significant power to challenge the federal government on unconstitutional actions, the joint efforts of these attorneys general may be our last best hope...short of a revolution.

Obama isn’t coming close to upholding his Presidential pledge. But, so far, his errors seem to be those of omission and not commission. He is refusing to enforce existing laws. He isn’t enforcing laws that don’t exist.

What he is doing creates chaos. If he crosses the line to making up laws that haven’t passed, he will create civil breakdown.

I smell a class action suit at SCOTUS under the Equal Protection Clause by these 11 (and counting) AG´s in fairly short order. This could be the death knell of ACA - keep fingers crossed. These guys have the gonads the Congress lacks.

I think it was the 5th paragraph. Some of the paragraphs are only one sentence.

"West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey wrote the letter, which was signed by his counterparts in Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and Virginia.

Signatories include Gregg Abbott of Texas — who’s running for governor this year — and Ken Cuccinelli of Virginia.

James D. “Buddy” Caldwell of Louisiana was previously a member of the Democratic Party, but switched to the GOP in 2011. "

#7, Abbott was asked about that in last night´s interview. He said the letter was put together in a bit of a hurry and over the holiday, so his opinion was that other AGs might have joined in, had they been made aware and given the opportunity.

This story is a paraphrase of a question I´ve asked many times: do the legal departments at the insurance companies comply with written law or the politically expedient ´directive´ of the day issued by know-nothings like Obama and Sebelius?

The letter is the initial step, #11, and apparently is a legal requirement prior to further action. The problem remains, however, of "standing". Do the states have standing in a lawsuit? We´ll find out.

In a democratic republic as ours used to be, the legislature enacts laws, the executive executes them, and the judiciary holds the other branches to the constitutional guidelines.

In a fascist state, the executive does as it pleases and ignores the legislature and the judiciary.

It is all menaingless;

Whether you claim that these AG’s were gutsy, or it was just an empty gesture, it won’t make any difference. Not even if they go to to the useless and traitorous Roberts Supreme Court with it.

The only thing left that really has any meaning is if you, and a few million of your friends join me in declaring:

I SHALL NOT COMPLY

And follow through with that promise, whatever might come.

His points were all well and good but I wished he had reminded the viewers that back when during the govt shutdown in October, any Republicans comments about amending or delaying it was meant by the Dems with "it´s settled law." Really???

No, #22, I don´t expect even hundreds to join me. This gutless society just hopes that some politician will save them, and will bow down to despots when their savior doesn´t come.

I have self-insured, paid cash for my medical needs for the last 20 years, and I don´t intend to start just because a bunch of despots and fools in Washington D.C. says I have to buy a policy that they approve of.

And if I can´t afford to pay for my healthcare I´ll die.

It is called freedom. I prefer it to living as a slave.

I´m with you #19, I will NOT comply and have talked to many others who won´t either. My husband and I have been without any medical insurance for almost 8 years. I had always carried both of us it but was laid off and his company doesn´t offer insurance. I was the big bread winner, we just could not afford it THEN, forget about NOW. I have worked about half the time during these 8 years, but all consulting/temp jobs. We can live on his pay but we would have gone broke long ago if we were paying insurance. We´ve both needed minor medical attention during those years and have just paid for it. It´s much less expensive when it´s minor. We do work out, eat healthy, and pray often.

# 5, 19, Let me preface my comments by saying I agree with you both completely. But I have finally come to the conclusion that what you advocate is what the *commie loving SOB* is pushing us to do. Hence the BILLIONS of bullets purchased for the meaningless alphabets of the govt; EPA, TSA, etc. He wants us to rebel, so he can institute martial law, throw out Congress, the Courts and completely--the Constitution. Then he and valjar can rule absolutely. Now--try saying that out in public, and they bring the guys in white coats and nets.

So, Number 31: Do you suggest that we just kneel down and comply?

Freedom ain´t free.

If I can´t afford to pay for what I need, I´ll die.

If 0bama sends a big enough armed contingent to force me at gunpoint to sign up for his insurance, I´ll die.

And I find it kind of ironic that if they don´t kill me, but put me in prison for not buying their d@mn insurance policy, then they (the taxpayers, unfortunately) will have to pay for not only my medical care, but for my food, shelter and clothing.

Y´all better hope that they just kill me. You probably won´t even notice your share of the cost of the bullets.

Take note those 11 State Attorneys filed the first challenge to the barrylaw. They were later joined by 15 more and forced the Supreme court to accept the suit--sadly the Court is also contaminated.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

Russian Regular Forces To Invade
"NewRussia" Between May 4 And 9?

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

Goldwater was nicknamed “Mr. Conservative,” but now even liberals adore him. Robert F.

Goldwater was “neither mean-spirited nor racist,” wrote Kennedy; he challenged

A three-year study of how network news refers to “Easter” reveals that by a margin of 500-56, reports that mention the word or “Easter season” choose a secular path linking it to candy Peeps, frilly clothes and cocktails over Christ’s resurrection. “Instead of celebrating Christ´s rising from the dead, the networks have made it about ´egg-cellent Easter fashions,´ frilly Easter bonnets and pink martinis,” said a report from the conservative Media Research Center provided to Secrets on Good Friday. The study reviewed three years of news in the two weeks before Easter and found that about 89 percent of the references to

The Kingdom tower will measure 3,280 feet when completed, which stretches 568 feet taller than the current Guinness World Record holder for tallest man-made construction, the Burj Khalifa building in Dubai. The building will dominate the skyline of the coastal town of Jeddah on the Red Sea. If you´re afraid of heights, you´ll definitely want to know the 200-story building will feature a massive 98-foot terrace jutting from the side of the 157th floor. The Kingdom Tower won´t come

Holder’s undermining of the
law deserving of contempt
Washington Times, by Robert Charles    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 5:10:28 AM     Post Reply
Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight
