Recommended Posts

ederal judge ruled for House Republicans on Thursday in their suit againstPresident Obama and declared his administration is unconstitutionally spending money to reimburse health insurers without obtaining an appropriation from Congress.

The judge's ruling, though a setback for the administration, was put on hold immediately and stands a good chance of being overturned on appeal.

But the 38-page opinion highlights the repeated complaint from Republicans that Obama and his administration have ignored constitutional limits on their authority.

The Constitution says "No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law," said Judge Rosemary Collyer, yet the administration has continued to pay billions to insurers for their extra cost of providing coverage for low-income Americans.

"Paying out Sec. 1402 reimbursements without an appropriation thus violates the Constitution," she wrote. "Congress is the only source for such an appropriation, and no public money can be spent without one."

They've been stealing money from somewhere else because it's not been appropriated by CONgress.  They even denied it when they were asked.  Obamacare is a nightmare and now Obama wants everyone to say : Affordable Care Act.  They don't know if they're going to appeal or not. Pfft. If they knew they'd win, they'd already have had the papers ready to file.

Just wait until you read the Corba part.  Snake bite at a place that uses the snake symbol for the medical industry.  Yes, let the snake that just bite me come up with a cure. 

Even though you aren't required to have Obamacare while you aren't working, but if you want to extend your current coverage, and most likely while you don't have any employment, you can pay the bigger difference of the fact that your employer is no longer contributing. 

People are having a hard time getting out of Obamacare after they sign up, but this is just another way for you to pay up the real cost of the healthcare, just as if you were paying full price for medical operations.  Since the whole purpose of insurance is for people who have the money, can help pay for indigent care at the expense of everybody (including illegals), you can continue paying even when you are out of work.  If by some stroke of luck you get back to work, does your new employer contribute to your current plan instead of taking a new one out on you?  All of these people on welfare on depending on the working class and now apparently even the non-working class.  Give till it hurts and then give some more.
