Obama Fix = Selectively Enforcing Law Of Land

From the Weekly Standard:

‘Fairy Tale’ Continues as Obama Proposes Extralegal Obamacare Fix

By DANIEL HALPER | November 14, 2013

… [T]here’s a catch with president’s proposed solution. The president is not proposing that the law be changed to allow all health insurance plans grandfathered into Obamacare’s eligibility requirements.

No, instead the White House is saying that it will use "enforcement discretion" to allow illegal health insurance plans to be able to still be sold. That is, the Obama administration will not enforce the penalty on individuals for not having eligible health insurance plans and they’ll allow the insurance companies to still sell so-called bad plans — plans they technically can’t sell under Obamacare.

In other words, Obama’s solution is to selectively enforce his own law. Just like his solution for amnesty is to selectively enforce our immigration laws. And never mind that the President takes an oath of office wherein he pledges to "faithfully execute the laws of the United States."

"Under the White House’s approach, the Department of Health and Human Services will notify the nation’s state insurance commissioners that they have federal permission to allow consumers who already have such insurance policies to keep them through 2014," reports the Washington Post.

He’ll also be forcing insurance companies to help advertise for Obamacare by letting customers know that there’s an Obamacare marketplace where they can purchase (or get subsidized) health care coverage.

Obama’s proposal is an extra-legal solution to a big problem for millions of Americans around the country.

Of course, the low information crowd probably thinks ‘extra-legal’ just means that it’s even more legal.

"I don’t see within the law how they can do this administratively," said Speaker John Boehner in a press conference on Capitol Hill. "No one can identify anything the president could do administratively to keep his pledge that would be both legal and effective." …

Then maybe Congress should do something to stop him. How much more of their power will they allow him to take?
