Obama To Overrule Supreme Court? President Considers "Mitigating" Obamacare Ruling
zero hedge ^ | 6/30/14 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 06/30/2014 12:12:40 PM PDT by Nachum

Having had his omnipotence chipped away at last week, President Obama has - seemingly - been pushed too far by the Supreme Court's decision on contraception and Obamacare this morning: The White House stated...

Totalitarian? You decide... One wonders if the phrase "do you know who I am?" was uttered this morning?

 

As The Hill adds,

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said women should be able to "make personal health decisions for themselves,” and called contraception "vital" to the health and well-being of women.

 

...

 

"We will, of course, respect the Supreme Court ruling,” he added.

I wonder if he is considering an FDR-like stunt and threatening to increase the Supreme Court to 15 members and load it with Marxists like himself and just finish destroying the Constitution.

The executive will do anything it wants.

I mean, what? you think your local police won’t enforce the gravy train of the fed against your, umm what? Whining pleas of “Hey the supreme court said this is unconstituional, let me go... don’t you care about the constitution?”!”

LOL give me a break. If word comes down to local PDs to enforce anything or make any move, they will, without thought. Thinking any idiot police officer has even the vaguest sense of what the supreme court did or did not say, and how it impacts their decision against directives is as ridiculous as expecting a 3 year old to understand why an architect needs to know advanced math.

All edicts not supported by the executive branch are basically a joke in the modern era of American governance. Local enforcement and leadership is too ignorant of constitutional law (or they don’t care), and too dependent on the fed for their $$$$$$.

•SUPREME COURT DECISION ON CONTRACEPTION COVERAGE JEOPARDIZES HEALTH OF WOMEN EMPLOYED BY THESE COMPANIES

How is this possible? It’s not removing a “benefit” that already existed. Will these women no longer be able to purchase birth control on their own, as they have been doing? Don’t tell me they have all been sitting by with their legs crossed waiting for their employers to provide them with birth control. Will hordes of women suddenly begin to scamper about engaging in risky sexual practices since their employers are not required to provide them with birth control? How have women suddenly, magically become endangered after this ruling?

One news site showed a protester holding up a NARAL poster that said, “My birth control is not my boss’s business.” Of course! But if you require him to pay for it, it will become his business, O clueless one!

Apparently, in the language of His Divine Imperial Majesty Barackulus, "respect" and "ignore" mean the same thing.

At the rate the GOP is currently going, I am bracing myself for eight years of President Biden.

They can make any decision they want, but don't expect me to have to pay one red cent for any decision I disagree with on moral or religious grounds.

I actually predicted this, but I thought I was joking.

Sadly I knew you were not making a joke. As soon as I read it I knew that was the route Obastard was going to go.

According to Neil Cavuto, Congress only has 28 more “working days” until the mid term elections. What are the chances they’re going to do anything? Obama has clear sailing ahead.

Agree. Anyone who works for a government check and covets their retirement will do what they’re told. They will follow orders, no matter how egregious. The gravy train is indeed a very powerful inducement that often overrides one’s judgement.

Well, he’s on the air right now saying he is going to “mitigate” immigration!

So, President Jarrett taught him a new word today.

I agree.

In fact, I would even like to see the company or employer out of the loop. Create a system where by the company is able to contribute (like 401K) to an individual’s insurance plan. The company then gets deduct as an expense, for the amount that they contributed, the cost of the overhead (administration costs) and an additional X% to encourage companies to provide this benefit.

You could have a larger benefit (X + some amount) for benefits offered to full time employees. This would reverse the Obamacare trend of forcing people into part time status.

Individuals could then go shop the State exchanges or even the individual markets to find the best insurance that is a fit for them. This then takes the burden of HR and HIPPA and all the other regulatory requirements off of the business.

Individuals could :
- self insure (just sock away the money)
- buy a catastrophic plan (low cost and put away the rest)
- buy additional insurance coverage if needed
- buy full coverage
- participate in State risk pools for pre-existing conditions

Maybe it is time to start impeachment. After November with a GOP controlled House and Senate Obama could be removed from office. I’m not so sure Democrats would be in lockstep to prevent his removal in the Senate after the election blood bath they will take this fall. Obama’s dictatorial rulings could be even too much for many Democrats to take and they could be looking at the extinction of their party in many states.

APPROPRIATE RESPONSE:

Today's Supreme Court decision does NOT prevent women from killing their unborn child, it just stops them from making their employer pay for it.

Something will happen that will stop this traitor..don't know what, don't know when, but American citizens will have reached the boiling point, and either they, or some unknown force will stop obozo. We cannot see into the future, but we must not stop pushing back, we must not stop fighting. Either push back, fight back and give your all to the return of our Constitution, liberty and freedom, or the country is lost. America, we're no quitters and we don't take crap from lefties who want to walk over us with their jack boots and enslave, oppress us. obozo WILL be stopped.

Don't feel like starting a new thread, but would love to know how many are breaking down and weeping over our country.

I literally cry when I hear God Bless America now. Not because of patriotic pride as before, but in grieving pain.

King Obamatron wants the law to be measured by the size of the king’s foot on any given day. The trouble is that Kings have peasants, and America’s newly created peasants are now getting very, very restless.

A whole lot of folks are weeping over the state of our country. But, we must shed our tears (which relieves stress) and then put aside our sorrow..we’ve got work to do and bigger fish to fry. We must be focusing on what we must do, and how we’re going to do it.

Be of good faith. When you hear the song God Bless America, sing along with it out loud, and sing it PROUD! THIS IS OUR COUNTRY! Say a prayer, dust yourself off, pick yourself up and keep on fighting!
