Let's see now; the bill became law about three years ago and they still need time to get ready. Meanwhile, the individual mandate and the rest of this fiasco remains in place.
This action on his part probably isn't even legal since the President has no authority to dismiss existing law, yet this wouldn't be the first time that he has done so. Remember the Defense of Marriage Act - he refused to honor it, even taking a position against it with the Supreme Court.
Don't be fooled by what's going on here, folks. Without saying so, what the President is doing is delaying one of the most drastic parts of the law until after the 2014 elections, figuring that the Democrats might be able to take over the House and, with continued control of the Senate, he will be able to expand his unconstitutional powers even more and faster.
The Republicans have a golden opportunity here if they choose to exploit it. I know the Tea Party types want to but I have little faith in the establishment types who are always more interested in their personal gain than they are in what's best for our country.
For what it's worth, here's my recommendation. Between now and the election, put on a full court press to defund and end Obamacare. This can be done by constant pressure, never bending, and turning the existing majority dislike of this law into a groundswell of action. That is the only thing that Washington understands. Flood the media with horror stories about this, challenge them openly to tell the truth, and never relent. And keep your own full court press on Congress as well. In short, use the same tactics, although more politely, than what the Left continually hammers at us.
And then here is the kicker. Demand that the House does nothing with immigration. Put it on the back burner and focus on eliminating Obamacare and replacing it with a doctor- patient centered approach run by the private sector. Government should only be involved to the point of insuring that it is fair and feasible with input from all who are impacted, not just union, insurance companies and big pharma types. Let real doctors and their patients determine what is best in an open and free market. This is critically absent in Obamacare.
Americans in large numbers hate Obamacare and they don't favor this terrible immigration bill either. For once, Republicans, do the right thing and you will be rewarded. If you don't, you will become a weak minority party forever and the Democrats will get everything they want: the destruction of a free and vibrant America.
May God always steer us toward freedom and liberty. God bless America.
