Response to "The ACA is Law" (vanity)
10/05/2013 | me

Posted on 10/05/2013 9:44:58 AM PDT by God luvs America

Over the past week, when arguing with liberals (extreme left wingers) over the shutdown, I hear the same talking point time and time again; "the ACA is law"....I respond with the same answer, pointing out the hypocrisy of left wingers/liberals, and encourage Freepers to do the same...


TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Miscellaneous; News/Current Events; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS:
-I remind them that we have immigrations laws in this nation which obama's imperial presidency refuses to enforce...

- I remind them we have border laws in this nation which obama's imperial presidency refuses to enforce...

- I remind them obama refused to enforce DOMA, which was a law, the first five years of his imperial presidency....

so the next time some left wing extremist says there's no negotiating because "the ACA is law", remind them of all the laws presently on the books the imperial president refuses to enforce...

So was DOMA*, but that didn’t stop the First Dictator from declaring it null and void by telling his accomplice, Holder, not to enforce it.

You folks are right, you should be bold, loud, and “proud” about it. Every time an evil person twists what is good as though it were his or her own private dominion, point out what is good out there in the whole wide world. I say proud because it rhymes :-) but a better word would be glorious, since all good things come down from the Father of lights. (Then the father of lies tries to steal them. But it’s like trying to steal cookies in broad daylight once you see what’s going on.)

Hit them with one of their favorites: Abortion used to be illegal! THAT was law, and THEY are very happy IT was changed!

Even parts of the ACA itself which Obama has chosen to delay or ignore.

Nero Is violating the very legislation he is telling everyone it is the Law.

He granted waivers to Congress and Businesses. Illegal. It has yo go thru the legislative approval process.

Yes and no - it’s law except for those portions which Obama unilaterally decides to abridge, like the business mandate and the requirement that congress, the president and their staff all obtain their insurance through Obamacare - but then as you point out, he unconstitutionally picks and chooses which laws he wants to uphold and which to ignore, so.....

Slavery used to be law. It used t be against the law to arm or teach a slave to read.

Laws can be changed.

Those affected by it should have the most say and as it appears now the only ones who want it are those who are exempted from it or think it will cost them nothing.

You might also remind them that slavery was once the law of the land, too, and it was even upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court (the Dredd Scott decision). Obamacare will deprive millions of Americans of their privacy and liberty, and millions more of their hard-earned money. Let’s hope it won’t take a civil war to repeal it.

“Prohibition was law, too.”
Jim Crow laws were “The Law” at one time.
Seemed like a bad idea, and it was. Eventually it was overturned.
Unaffordable Health Care law will one day be repealed.

The LAW is that all funding must originate in the House of Representatives.

The PEOPLE elected the members of the House to represent them.

That’s exactly what they are doing.

We could probably go an all day thread with laws that used to be and laws that are today ignored by the administration. The ACA has gotta go.

“Unaffordable Health Care law will one day be repealed.”

Freebies, i.e., ( The ACA ), have never been repealed.

The best that can be done is to roll them back such as Newt Gingrich was able to do in the 1990s.

Death Penalty laws have been found unconstitutional in several states. Throw that one at ‘em...libs hate the Death Penalty and are eager to have those laws overturned. If they were intellectually consistent, they would have to argue the Death Penalty is “the law” and cannot be overturned.

Of course, intellectual honesty and integrity are not hallmarks of leftists where the ends justifies any means.

Segregation was law too. So was slavery before that. Libs surely can understand that it is the height of patriotism and integrity to fight against bad laws.

Many libs idolize MLK, and he is famous for fighting against bad laws, protesting bad laws and even violating bad laws and going to jail - just to make a point.

It shouldn't be too hard for even libtard dimwits to understand this is a matter of fundamental principle and our disobedience and objection to Obamacare will be like the Civil Rights movement, it will never end until The Powers That Be (yes, lefties, you are "the man" now and you are oppressing us) surrender and give up the bad law.

Oh, yeah, and if you keep screwing with us along the way you are libel to get the Conservative version of your other favorite leader, Malcolm X, as we adopt his motto as our own: "By any means necessary".

Freakin' Tards! Can't stand 'em! I've broken off friendships with anyone who supports Obama.

Arguing with, and debating point-by-point with our domestic socialists is absolutely pointless. Facts mean nothing to them, nor will they ever concede a point. The only appropriate response to their rediculous rhetoric is sit down and shut up stupid, no one asked you. Also, if law was a static thing, the Mesopotamians would have hammered out a one-size-fits-all version which would have served all future civilizations nicely. Take home point... arguing with commies and their ilk is an exercise in futility. Save your strength and resources for worthwhile efforts.

Doing so in the "real world" is a considerably more difficult task.

The biggest, most obvious counter is: then why did 0bama defy the law and delay employer penalties and okay subsidies for federal employees contrary to that same law. If it is the law why does 0bama break it at will?

Slavery enslaved the blacks. Obamacare, upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, enslaves everybody!

I just say, “Slavery was the law, too. I guess you think it shouldn’t have been overturned.

Why do you hate black people?”

"It's the law."

So was slavery.
So was Prohibition.
So was conscription.

Obummercare is less popular than any of those.

anti-sodomy laws were law of the land too.

anti-adultery laws were too.

why didn’t liberals respect the law of the land then?

Heck, Slavery was the “law of the land.” Even in the Northern states, slaves were considered property to be returned to their owners in the South when they were caught.

Law of the land right there.

But I think pointing out the laws that are currently on the books, and being ignored by Obastard, is a good tactic. Go for it. Ask how they would react if a Republican were to be elected in 2016 and decided to ignore Obastardcare.

And that’s the part even the good media is missing.

There were funds to run the govt, no shutdown, and the above is the reason for it.....
