Hey, remember when all the GOP wanted in exchange for extending the debt ceiling was a delay of ObumbleCare's individual mandate by one year? And remember how the Democrats reacted? Here's Boss Obama, for starters:
A lot of Republicans seem to believe that if they can gum up the works and make this law fail, they’ll somehow be sticking it to me. But they’d just be sticking it to you.
Democrats called Republicans who wanted a delay -- a delay, mind you, not a repeal or anything -- were called "terrorists" and "extremists," among other colorful terms. Democrats chided the GOP: "[ObumbleCare] is THE LAW OF THE LAND!! NO CHANGES OR DELAYS!!"
But not only has Boss Obama change and/or delayed provisions of the "law of the land," he's done it several times. The latest came yesterday:
In a move that was pre-emptively attacked by House Republican leaders, the administration said plans that were grandfathered for one year after millions received cancellation notices in the individual market will now be able to continue, but will not be able to be renewed after Oct. 1, 2016. The announcement means an estimated 500,000 people in those plans won’t get cancellation notices right before the midterm elections, but does set up a situation where some could get cut off right before the next presidential election.
To coin a cliché, this is beyond parody. The administration, of course, [laughably] denies a political motive. But each and every GOPer running against a Democrat for the House or Senate should pound the airwaves with the numerous contradictions and lies of this pathetic cadre in the White House. And the future Republican chief exec should always remember the precedent President Lemon has set for him: Change laws as you see fit, enforce laws you like, and don't enforce laws you dislike.Posted by Hube at March 6, 2014 07:12 PM | TrackBack
