I mean why not? If they can skew the US Constitution illegally to satisfy their political whims, it should be used as a tactic to completely ignore the ACA when it finally crashes and burns. Or is it the end of our country after this dangerous precedent?

In my dream world , we get a veto proof majority and repeal that shit while Hussein is still in office.

The look on that fuckheads face would be priceless.

Other than that, I would give it a shot if I was the Pres.

Id do a presser, tell everyone I signed an EO negating that horseshit law and dare any motherfucker to stop me. You know kinda like Hussein did.

Suck it bitches

Even if they could, there is no way the .gov is going to give up that much control.

I have NO IDEA..........this is such a CLUSTERFUCK that I suppose anything is possible.

I do honestly believe, which means nothing, that this last move by Obama might make Obamacare ineffective.

I hope it is the death knell of this HORRIBLE law.

Its Obamacare.
Since it is his, he can do whatever he wants to with it.

It's not like Obama Care is a amendment to the Constitution.....Of course it can be reversed. Just need the votes and political will to do so.

I see Obama Care as the perfect vehicle to go with the nuclear option on if the GOP gains the Senate and later the WH.

That said if the bugs/costs (more subsidies/insurance company welfare) get worked out before 2017 we will never get shed of it. Four years is a long time for the ACA to get entrenched. Time is not on our side.

I didn't think of that. Apparently Congress gave the POTUS all the power when they passed 0bamacare.

Should be an easy win for any GOP candidate, just state you will completely ignore and not enforce 0bamacare. If that doesn't sway 5% of voters, nothing will.

Knowing the GOP, they'll fuck it up and also let the media paint them as responsible for 0bamacare.

If the next President is a Republican and he tries to ignore ObamaCare the left will file 10,000 lawsuits to force the administration to comply.

Who will file suit to force the current President to comply with the law?

Before the first shots were fired the Committees of Correspondence set up what amounted to their own postal system. That was done to prevent the British authorities from intercepting and reading the communications between the committees.

Apparently POTUS can ignore any law now, and more and more make laws up through EO and rulemaking that ignores any input.

If the President can ignore a law about health care, why can't he ignore a law about gun control?

I have not figured this out yet. Maybe I am too dumb to figure it out.

As I understand HHS and POTUS cannot "change laws" they may be able to "clarify" laws but changing dates, of implementation, coverage etc. is a change to the law Congress needs to do that.
