Obamacare’s Biggest Legal Threat
National Review Online, by John Fund

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/14/2014 5:13:47 AM

The legal positions of President Obama’s Justice Department have been slapped down unanimously a remarkable 13 times in the Supreme Court in the last two years. Over and over, even Obama’s own two appointees to the court — Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan — have held that the president has exceeded his authority and violated the separation of powers. This coming week, we could see the second-highest court in the land rule that the administration broke the law in enforcing a key provision of Obamacare, calling into question once again Obama’s fidelity to the Constitution — and further endangering his

Don´t tweak it - repeal it.
Replace with Dr..Ben Carson´s plan.
Get back to Doctor Patient relationship at center.
Pre existing conditions can be handled.
Cross state insurance.
Tort Reform - put blood sucking Dem contributing Trial Lawyers in their place.
Why no tort reform in Obamatax? Billions in Dem Campaign contribution.
Stop funding healthcare for illegals - deport them ALL.

FTA "But more important, the Obama administration would have no choice but to work with Congress as it revisited the exchange issue and rewrote the law."

WTP don´t want obamacare rewritten we want it repealed. Once again the Republicans will help the Democrats "fix" obamacare and continue the destruction of the country!

There is NO hope of 0bmacare being rewritten in this Congress. And declaring Federally provided subsidies outside of law will deal a death blow to the whole scheme. The lefties on the DC Circuit know this well. So did Judge Friedman.
That is why the full bench (packed by 0bama) will rule against the plaintiffs. It will land squarely in the lap of CJ Roberts. IMO he will view the 2014 vote as a referendum on 0bamacare and rule accordingly in June ´15.

The judiciary has been flexing its progressive muscle since Obama was elected. Don´t expect it to change. CJ John Roberts put us on this course to destruction when he decided to write law instead of interpret it. He should have ruled on precisely what it said and not have tweaked it himself that is the job of Congress. We all learned in elementary school you do not change the answer if you are grading a test paper.

Many in the judiciary are out of control in this country. Most judges at the local level are honest, hard working men and women, but when they start moving up the judicial ladder, they have a tendency to desire the prestige that comes from fitting in with their peers who unfortunately have cultivated a god complex. Corruption has infiltrated every aspect of our government, education, business, media and culture. The judiciary is no different. Agenda driven ideologues are embedded in every crook and cranny of our lives. We are just about to the tipping point where there is no rule of law, just rule by ideological tyrants.

The US Chamber of Commerce is spending millions and millions to be sure plenty of Establishment Republicans are elected. The whole point is to make sure Obamacare is "fixed" not repealed and we have lots and lots of cheap labor (legal or illegal, they don´t care).

I´m wondering if the Chamber took into account the hordes of children arriving daily. If they did, this is cynical to the maximum degree.

The Democrats got in such a rush to pass it, they made some mistakes. So these slip ups are fitting desserts for them. Squirm Democrats squirm-put out all those little fires Obama lit. Any project by someone who hid their scholastic record should not be trusted and too late now: even Kagan basically said tough luck on mistakes and NO rewrite.

Obamacare will fail-it is under assault on too many fronts. The pattern of the Supremes reinforces substantiates this. Besides Obama disobeys our laws so I am not obeying any of his!

What a tangled web they weave ..


It´s amazing how lawyers live and breathe on every "jot and tittle" of the law, but DOJ can simply brush off same as "drafting errors". The Chief Justice of the SCOTUS can simply correct such "errors" (it was really a tax) in his "rulings". We seem to have a multi-tiered justice system. The whole thing is corrupt.

That should be no surprise: absolute power corrupts absolutely in the courts, too.

And not to be forgotten is that this is being heard by the DC Circuit Court.

Prediction: not much will change. Don´t get your hopes up. Impeachment has been taken off the table by Mr. Boehner, so the Emperor will continue to consolidate his power, and this law will stand, "drafting errors" and all. Judges that he has appointed will uphold it, and CJ Roberts will ultimately find a way to go along should it reach the SCOTUS.

How much money has been sunk into Washington to get our politicians to require people to purchase healthcare insurance? Some people are getting very rich over this. How much is insurance nothing more than a ripoff? When money is involved, our government breaks the law. Especially the Obama gang.

We have been told healthcare is a right. Is healthcare a right or a luxury?

The runaway decisions made my federal judges in this era is mind boggling. It seems that daily, judges simply make up a law in the way they want it to be. I wonder is anyone has fully read the Constitution. There is a part that says "The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour ...." (Article III Section I)
Could it be interpreted that "good behavior" can mean that judges that make laws instead of interpret them and thus be used as a way to remove them from the court? After all, they ARE violating their oath of office.

IIRC if any part of this bill was deemed to be in error and amended/struck down, the entire bill (due to the rat´s arrogance) would be null and void as they put no stipulations into the writing of the law. Either all or "nottin´" Is this correct and the same fact others might remember?

Our Callow Commander-in-Chief

Posted By: StormCnter- 7/19/2014 5:54:27 AM     Post Reply
It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years. For the rest of us, it has served as a liability and an irritation. Yesterday, it became a wholesale embarrassment. On the perpetual-campaign trail, the pattern is familiar. Trotting up to the podium, the president fist-bumps the audience’s stragglers and smiles a toothy and humble grin at those who catch his eye. While speaking, he responds to obsequy with obsequy — “I love you too!” he

White House Hid Huge Spike

New data shows the White House has painted a false picture of the Central American migration by hiding a huge spike in “family units” who are illegally crossing the Texas border. The data, which was dumped by the U.S. border patrol late Friday afternoon, shows that inflow of youths and children traveling without parents has doubled since 2013, to 57,525 in the nine months up to July 2014. But the number of migrants who cross the border in so-called “family units” has spiked five-fold to 55,420, according to the border patrol’s data, which came out amid a storm of news about the

Water is not a human right. It’s a human need. Ever since Adam and Eve got booted out of Eden, people have devoted most of their energy and labor to meeting the basic needs of food, water, clothing and shelter. It’s the origin of work — you’re hungry, you’re thirsty, you need some decent threads and a roof over your head, you have to get up in the morning and do something constructive. There will be a lot of folks in the streets of Detroit Friday afternoon challenging that truth. The legion of lefties in town for the Netroots Nation gathering have

SALMON Idaho - Freed war prisoner Bowe Bergdahl has not yet reached out to his parents who campaigned hard for his freedom and who hold out hope he will eventually contact them once fully recovered from trauma inflicted by his Taliban captors, a family friend said on Friday. Stefanie O´Neill, who is in regular contact with Bergdahl´s mother, said the U.S. soldier´s parents were strained both by their son´s silence since his May 31 release and because of death threats being investigated by the FBI.

It is a bad sign when your political defense can be summed up with the phrase “things could be worse.” It is a very bad sign when that weak excuse applies to not only an incumbent president’s economic policy but also to his foreign policy. Job growth is only a mirage and economic growth is anemic at best, but the president and his Democratic allies are still trying to convince us that our economy is in a good place and getting better. Six years after President Obama was elected, Democrats still have to fall back on reminding us that we were

Secretly intercepted chatter suggests a deadly Russian missile system was smuggled across the border to Ukraine just hours before a Malaysia Airlines flight was shot down. The Ukrainian Security Service released the incriminating tapes Friday as President Obama threatened to crank up economic sanctions against Russia and the probe of the mass murder continued. Investigators descended Friday on the sunflower fields near the Ukraine-Russia border to recover evidence and to determine exactly who was behind the attack on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, killing all 298 people aboard. The United Nations said 80 of those killed were children. World leaders demanded an immediate ceasefire in

If you’re looking for a reason for the supposed impoverishment of Gaza, look no further than the maze of tunnels – some of them miles long — Hamas has built under their territory and beyond their borders into Israel. It’s the jihadist version of Boston’s “Big Dig.” The construction is so extensive that nearly every able-bodied man must have been employed in the occupation of tunnel-building, not to mention the huge diversion of funds, much of it donated by the West, for material like concrete originally trucked into Gaza by the Israelis and others for “humanitarian purposes.” A huge complex is

It was not even a month ago that Vladimir Putin stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the elected leaders of the Western world to commemorate the D-Day invasion. I hope whoever issued that invitation has the decency to feel some embarrassment today. Through the past eight months of escalating Russian violence against Ukraine, too many European governments have treated the Ukraine issue as remote and marginal: regrettable, yes, but not a threat to the peace of the continent. It was more important, they felt, to sustain a normal relationship with Russia. That illusion died yesterday along with the murdered passengers of Malaysia Airlines

I´m pretty confident that if President Barack Obama could reverse one thing about his presidency it would be the Republican wave in 2010. It stalled his agenda, it empowered the right, it prefigured damaging budget fights, it turned a bunch of states into right wing laboratories and allowed Republicans to gerrymander themselves into control of the House for many cycles in a row. The stakes were very large and he and Democrats were not well prepared. Relative to a political disaster of that scale, I agree with Hoover Institution fellow Tod Lindberg, who argued on The New Republic website Wednesday

President Obama styles himself a wit, and some of his best material lately has to do with his abuse of his powers. “As long as they’re doing nothing, I’m not going to apologize for doing something,” Obama riffed to a crowd at the Georgetown Waterfront Park in Washington, DC, on July 1, referring to Republicans. “So sue me.” Hilarity ensued. He cracked them up in Austin, Texas, last week. “You hear some of them,” he said, “?‘Sue him.’ ‘Impeach him.’ Really? Really? For what? You’re going to sue me for doing my job?” One can only imagine the comedic possibilities in his 9-0

At his weekly press briefing, CNSNews.com asked Boehner: “You’ve said you disagree with calls to impeach the president over abuse of power via executive actions. But under the Constitution the House actually has the power of the purse.

Some Republicans are beginning to extend their free-market, limited-government beliefs to include opposition to corporate welfare, like the Export-Import Bank. Many conservatives hate the idea of centralized education standards driven by a coalition of unaccountable bureaucrats and big business. K Street lobbyist and former GOP congressional aide John Feehery warns that this is a dangerous for the Right to walk, asking: What would happen if Big Business decided to change sides?
