In response to high-road's comment:
Ta.. Da ... Not implementing Obamacare fast enough.
House Republicans will base their lawsuit against President Barack Obama on the administration’s “unilateral” decision delay the employer mandate provision in Obamacare, Speaker John Boehner said Thursday.
Obamacare, which we are continuously reminded is the "law of the land", had specific dates to implement its provisions.
The President had no power to change the "law of the land" on his whim...
Having said that, Boehner's lawsuit is not a good idea. Neither is talk of impeachment.
Make the case to the voters, and elect a GOP Senate for a start...
Have any laws in the past missed their targets for implementation?
How about the law that every gov't entity will be audited .... and then the DoD takes a knee and doesn't comply?
And then there's this:
In May of 2006, just days before the end of open enrollment, President Bush took administrative action to waive “penalty fees for very low-income seniors and people with disabilities who sign up late” and allowed “the same impoverished beneficiaries to sign up for Medicare drug coverage until Dec. 31.”
“In other words, you can apply after May 15th without penalty,” Bush told seniors during an event in Florida. “And that’s important for low-income seniors to understand.”
But I'm sure that was different somehow ...
