When Obama Rewrites Obamacare,
Why Doesn´t Anyone Sue Him?

Weekly Standard, by John McCormack

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/12/2014 5:19:51 AM

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has

Because to do so invites the ire of the IRS, auditing the suit bringer back to the dawn of time...

What about the people who aren´t getting coverage because of the delay? Don´t they have standing for a class action?

And similarly, why don´t the field mice throw the bull out of their field? But seriously, aren´t the insurance companies losing massive influxes of premiums that would have come to them, absent this delay?

Does Congress not have standing? Their power to create laws are being usurped by those that have a duty to "uphold" the law, not create new ones.

An underlying assumption here is that the RINO establishment actually wants a fight over Obamacare. In reality they prefer to "go along to get along" and enjoy the perks of being Washington insiders.

There´s probably some way to use the False Claims act to sue companies that don´t follow the dictates of Obamacare. This kind of case would effectively negate Obama´s executive orders.

I´m not a lawyer, but isn´t this treating Zero´s actions like a civil case where someone has to be the "injured party" to bring a claim? It seems to me to be more of a criminal case where someone disobeys a law and is prosecuted for it. If you´re caught driving drunk there doesn´t need to be some party claiming injury for you to be arrested and prosecuted. Zero is choosing to ignore, i.e. disobey, the law. That´s criminal and he should be held accountable as such. Who might be willing to do that is the question.

Probably because these very businesses (and their political allies) actually like Obamacare - for all their protestations - what business wouldn´t like passing the cost of a benefit, especially an expensive one like health insurance, onto someome else.

And because not only are individual Americans becoming dependrnt on Big Government, but so are businesses, large and small.

But with a little more than two years until another presidential election, they may take comfort in the precedent that if a Democratic president has the authority to suspend significant parts of Obamacare, so would a Republican president.

This fact crossed my mind the other day after Obama exceeded his Executive power again. I immediately thought of my mother´s famous admonition: "Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander."

In my humble opinion it´s not necessary to sue the outlaw administration. Use proxies instead:

Anyone whose employer fails to obey the law as written has standing to sue that employer, and perhaps those charged with enforcing the law.

Anyone whose health insurance policy does not conform to the law as written has standing to sue the insurance company and perhaps the non-enforcers.

Any business owner whose competition fails to obey the law has standing to sue them or any governmental agency that awards them a contract.

Re the question at large: well, I think the article explains it pretty well. The folks who are directly involved, the employers, are benefitting from the delays not being harmed.

Sorry, but it occurred to me right as I hit "send": The first entity that is not the beneficiary of such a delay, and is actually penalized for non-compliance while such a delay is in effect for other entities, might be able to make some kind of selective enforcement claim. But those are hard to pull off successfully, and anyway, it hasn´t happened yet.

Once in awhile, it would be refreshing if the entire article was read before the usual knee jerk trashing of Republicans commences.
Senator Mike Lee explains why a suit cannot ..be... brought. Yet.
FTA- Senator Lee :
"You´ve got to show three things: you´ve got to show that the plaintiff has suffered an injury in fact--a concrete, particularized harm
that´s fairly traceable to the conduct of the defendent, and it is capable of being redressed
or remedied by the court."
"It´s not immediately apparent to me who it is that would have standing
to show that they would be injured by this," Lee said.
"The people directly affected by the employer mandate are employers.
But I would imagine that the administration would argue, if sued on this by an employer...,
´You can´t show you´ve been injured by this.
We´re letting you off the hook.´"
Lee also explained that an individual taxpayer would also not have standing to sue.
The article then details that trying to defund Obamacare by failing to pass a spending bill ,
as happened during the shutdown, is pointless, as it´s automatically funded even without a spending bill.

If the Weekly Standard could only do journalism like NRO. The WS should have spent their time productively by taking more sips of wine from a Lincoln chalice than publishing this pathetic article. How they continue to have credibility when they´re the Al Sharpton/Tawana Brawley of magazines, not to mention Obama helpers in 2008; and they think they´re conservatives to boot.

#6, NO. In the bill there is an automatic bailout for insurance companies who don´t make enough to cover their losses. That´s why you haven´t heard a peep from them. Read all about it at NRO, 14 Jan ´14; "Insurance Company Bailouts."

At some point the government will turn around and sue employers for not upholding the letter of the law. The fact that His Highness has said it´s OK to ignore the law will have no standing in a court proceeding.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being.
