Skip to comments.Is Obama Planning to Reinstate Obamacare via Executive Order?

We will be prepared, said Obama aide Valerie Jarrett this week when asked about White House contingency plans in the event that Obamacare is struck down by the Supreme Court. But on Twitter, Marc Ambinder of The Atlantic said something interesting: that the White House has executive orders ready to go if Obamacare is struck down. Their content and timing I dont know, Marc says. But theyve got contingency plans a-plenty.
Its not clear to me exactly how much of Obamacare can be reinstated via executive order. Its certainly conceivable that the president could issue costly mandates that affect private insurers. But the president couldnt expand Medicaid on his own, or ration Medicare without congressional approval.
I will refuse to follow any Executive Order from the idiot in the WH. Obama can FOAD.
I expect nothing less.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, barry is already decreeing everything.
I kind of hope he does. It may finally force the American people and Congress to do something about this despot.
You may be on to something.
I think George III had less dictatorial power then the current POTUS.
This is how a representative republic dies: by executive order.....
Why not? He seems to be getting away with all of his other unconstitutional, unlawful acts.
Problem is, the Left has figured out that rather than compelling you to do something, it’s easier & more effective to compel a more willing party to make your life very difficult unless you comply.
Sorta like the classic RKBA cry of “FMCDH!” Ok, fine, keep your guns - retailers and manufacturers will be driven out of business, leaving you with no way to repair or resupply. Likewise health insurance: they’ll just tweak things so that sure you don’t have to buy it, but no provider will want to deal with you unless you do.
King George didn’t have constant monitoring and reporting of dissenting comments and financial tracking nor the ability to lift money out of people’s savings accounts without them knowing it.
If he does attempt to circumvent the SCOTUS via EO, then he might as well cancel the elections in November, because there is NO WAY IN HELL he is going to be re-elected, with 75% of the American people AGAINST OBAMACARE.................
The boy king can go boinking himself.
The “American people” and Congress will do NOTHING.
Obama will get 4 more years, then rule until his successor replaces him.
There will be a prime time presser, in which Obama will declare FREE healthcare for everyone and “children” (under age 30).
None of those back and forth negotiating with lawmakers on public options/death panel/is it healthcare or insurance thingie. If he has to go out, go out BIG.
Of course, he will probably also make an executive order demanding that the "H" be capitalized when referring to him.
I forgot, Obama will offer FREE healthcare NOW. Immediately.
Of course, BHO motto is “it’s good to be king”.
