Warning to Obama: Legal Battle Against Obamacare is Just Beginning
Tuesday, January 7, 2014
Eleven state attorneys general signed a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to warn that they will fight Obama’s illegal changes to the ACA.
The letter was signed by the attorneys general of Texas, West Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Virginia.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott told Newsmax that the fight is being escalated against Obamacare, and that Obama is disregarding the Constitution:
You’re going to see more people really for this cause because Americans . . . are incredibly frustrated by how the president keeps changing and altering the goal post and the Obamacare law.
[Obama] is a president who is unconstrained by the law and is acting more like a king than he is president, because it is only the Congress of the United States of America that can make laws.
So, here it’s the president who’s making up the laws as he goes along . . . The rule of law in the United States of America is becoming as wishy-washy as it is in some of these Third World countries.
I don’t know of any other president in the history of the United States of America who has disregarded the constitutional structure more than this president. And, as a result, that is why these state attorneys general, including myself, are now pushing back.”
What we have seen time and time again is the president incapable of living within the confines of the heavy-handed law imposed on its fellow Americans and efforts to try to extricate itself from a political bad situation.
