Barr urges Trump administration to back off call to fully strike down Obamacare

Attorney General William Barr made a last-minute push Monday to persuade the administration to modify its position in the Obamacare dispute that will be heard at the Supreme Court this fall, arguing that the administration should pull back from its insistence that the entire law be struck down.

... Barr and other top advisers have argued against the hard-line position for some time, warning it could have major political implications if the comprehensive health care law appears in jeopardy as voters head to the polls in November.

According to four sources familiar with the meeting, Barr argued for modifying the administration’s current stance to preserve parts of the law, rather than fully back the lawsuit filed by a group of Republican states. As it stands now, the Trump administration’s position seeks to invalidate the entire Affordable Care Act, signed by President Barack Obama in 2010 and commonly known as Obamacare.

We need to save Obamacare because the pandemic or something and because it’ll make the GOP look bad!

Rather than come up with better healthcare solutions (including deregulating and getting the government out of the healthcare biz) The GOPe continue to be worthless milquetoast sops.

Barr should just recuse himself and be done with it.

The entire law is illegal, so strike it down?

If the requirements of the law are found to be unconstitutional, then it’s unconstitutional.

Barr is Sessions with better PR. Still waiting for investigations to conclude and indictments of high level coup plotters. I suspect I will be waiting until after the Trump Administration and then, mysteriously all of this will vanish down the memory hole.

President response:

Agreed, now draft Legislation to be submitted to Congress mandating all Non Military Federal Employee's enroll in Obamacare and use the savings being wasted on inferior Health Insurance Plans for Federal Employee's, for the Wall.

… “(U)ltimately, I agreed to serve because I believe strongly in public service, I revere the law, and I love the Department of Justice and the dedicated professionals who serve there.” …
So he reveres the “law”—but apparently he does not revere the Constitution, since he shows reverence for an unconstitutional law in this instance.

we need to get RID of Zero-Care....and make sure the federal government never gets involved in “providing” (taking over) our health care again.
IF any government health care scheme is to be started or expanded it is up to the individual states to try it, NOT the feds!
