Howard Dean: "I Wonder If Obama Has the 'Legal Authority to Do This'" (Video)Topics: Political News and commentaries
Former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean questioned whether President Obama has the "legal authority" to carry out the Obamacare fix he outlined today:
"I wonder if he has the legal authority to do this, since this was a congressional bill that set this up," said Dean of Obama's proposed fix.John Boehner says essentially the same thing: "There is No Way To Fix This"
Speaker John Boehner said he's "highly skeptical" that President Obama has the legal authority to authorize an administrative fix allowing some people to keep their current health insurance plans next year.
"I am highly skeptical that they can do this administratively," Boehner said. "I just don't see within the law their ability to do that."
"No one can identify anything the president could do that would be legal and effective," Boehner added. "The only way to fully protect the America people is to scrap this law once and for all. There is no way to fix this."
