Obama Does Yet Another 'Unlawful' Unilateral Obamacare 'Fix'Topics: Political News and commentaries
It's "administration by 'blog post'"!
On December 19, 2013, Avik Roy spoke to Megyn Kelly on the Obama administration's decision to exempt millions of Americans from enrolling in the Affordable Care Act's insurance exchanges if they "believe the Marketplace options in [their] area are unaffordable."Barack Obama and his administration just don't need no stinkin' legislation ...
[...] The Obama administration on Thursday night significantly relaxed the rules of the federal health-care law for millions of consumers whose individual insurance policies have been canceled, saying they can buy bare-bones plans or entirely avoid a requirement that most Americans have health coverage.This is, at the very least - the 14th unilateral change to Obamacare that's been made without consulting Congress. And come to think of it, if the cancelled individual policies were such terrible "junk" - why is the Obama 'mis-administration' now allowing those who originally had them to purchase a type of policy it defined as "junk" in the first place?
The surprise announcement, days before the Dec. 23 deadline for people to choose plans that will begin Jan. 1, triggered an immediate backlash from the health insurance industry and raised fairness questions about a law intended to promote affordable and comprehensive coverage on a widespread basis."
