The Obama administration announced Thursday that states with faulty Obamacare enrollment websites will be able to retroactively give taxpayer subsidies to people who signed up for private insurance plans off the Obamacare exchanges.
The administrations executive decision to make Obamacare tax credits, which count as subsidies, available to non-Obamacare customers was slammed Friday by House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Joe Pitts.
It is outrageous for the Obama administration to be quietly telling states: pay subsidies now, worry about the paperwork later. The administration is blatantly ignoring the law, paying subsidies to plans outside of exchanges, Pitts said.
Additionally, this pay now, verify later directive could be a boon for fraudsters, raising the administrations unaccountability to the likes we have not seen....

A law that changes daily
This is beyond communism. It is the law of an absolute dictator. This is Barack "I am the law" Obama where he can do anything without any check from Congress or the courts.
Under Communism there is no insurance and the government is the only health care provider.
This is more like "worst of both worlds".
Laws? Who needs no steeeeking laws?
And I thought my terse remark was grim...
So what’s Pitts gonna do about it?
Complaining is just words. This is a year of action. You’ve got a pen & a phone. Start action.
If Aristotle, Livy, and Harrington, knew what a republic was, the British constitution is much more like a republic than an empire. They define a republic to be a government of laws, and not of men. If this definition is just, the British constitution is nothing more nor less than a republic, in which the king is first magistrate. This office being hereditary, and being possessed of such ample and splendid prerogatives, is no objection to the government's being a republic, as long as it is bound by fixed laws, which the people have a voice in making, and a right to defend. An empire is a despotism, and an emperor a despot, bound by no law or limitation, but his own will: it is a stretch of tyranny beyond absolute monarchy.
- John Adams, The Letters of Novanglus, VII. To the Inhabitants of the Colony of Massachusetts-Bay (6 March 1775)
Remember back when we lived in a Republic?
“Remember back when we lived in a Republic? “
Thank you. I was looking for the Adam’s quote but didn’t remember who said it. The Constitution relied on men, regardless of party, to have morals, courage and a will of their own. To impeach Nixon required principled Republicans to vote to do so. But Democrats have become a homogenous lump, indistinguishable except for hair and profile. They are all the same criminal under the skin.
Throwing sh## on the wall to see what sticks this is what we get when we elect an inexperienced community organizer and he hires idiots with an unrealistic dream of utopia along with many deficient co partners in crime
Not law. We now live under Diktat or Ukase, Comrades.

THE BIG O/CARE FLOPOLA CONTINUES Recent news reports say the Obama admin is engaged in a final coordinated push to enroll blacks in ObamaCare, White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said last Friday.
(CACKLE) GOOD OL' SUCKUP VALERIE "FORGOT" TO MENTION---those NOT enrolling are the self-same "underserved populations" for whom class-warrior Obama upended our entire healthcare delivery system.....which threw productive Americans w/ affordable plans into eternal healthcare chaos.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has not said how many blacks have enrolled, but California enrollment trends indicate Hispanic enrollment appears to be lagging, stoking fears that minority groups (the underserved) are not getting the message.........
This latest slapdown of his own law, illustrate that the Obo-dum-dums finally figured out they blanketed so-called "underserved populations" with so many govt freebies, like free medical care in emergency rooms, that these "underserved" types are thumbing their noses at laying out cash for Obamacare.
AS FREEPER GOPJ INSIGHTFULLY POSTED: underserved populations are NOT impressed with Obamacare. Under the old system they were NEVER turned down - and took their medical needs to Hospital Emergency rooms where they received the best medical care for free... And the hospitals got to write the care off their taxes and struggling working class Americans paid for it all.......
Lock-stepping Democrats---in obeisance to Obama---
are an indistinguishable homogenous lump---all of 'em
the same criminal element under the skin.
FASHION NOTE--WHAT LOCK-STEPPING DEMOCRATS
ARE WEARING THIS ELECTION SEASON (DNC-issue brown shirts):
Pay subsidies now, worry about the paperwork later.
That sounds like every bill the democrats have passed in the last fifty years.
I’d like my pay-off in 5 10 and 20 dollar unmarked bills. Thanks!
