Obama could/should have changed loss of insurance but did not

The story is not that “Obama knew” that policies would be terminated, but that Obama made this happen, and could unmake it with a phone call, but chooses not to, is the header from a post from Infidel Blogger’s Alliance. Rather than Obama being a helpless hapless bystander to events, and pondering if he did or did not know, the post makes these excellent points:

From Ace:

The news world, and the right blogosphere, from what I can tell, is still missing the story here. 

The story is not that “Obama knew” that policies would be terminated. That’s damning. But what is hugely damning and very important going forward is not that Obama knew, but that Obama made this happen, and could unmake it with a phone call, but chooses not to. 

This is not just about having knowledge that events beyond Obama’s control would unfold — this is about events directly at his control. Regulation-writers are executive employees, and as such, answer to the president and not Congress. 

This means Obama has the actual power — not the puffed up, falsely asserted unconstitutional power, but the genuine legal power — to call this agency and tell them, “We sold this bill as permitting people to keep their insurance; please re-write the regulations in a way that will honor this promise.” 

Remember, regulations are supposed to add details to the spirit of the law. They are not supposed to change the meaning of the law. 

Obama’s regulations — written at his behest, or at least with his connivance — change the meaning of the law to render the “grandfathered policy” provision a nullity.

Obama has it within his power to call up the HHS reg-writers and instruct them to honor the promise he made time and again for two years. And he doesn’t want people to know this, because he is determined to break that promise. 

That promise was always a lie, and not a meaningless lie at the periphery, but a central lie propping up the political campaign for ObamaCare. Had he told Americans that they would be losing their current health care in order to be dumped into what is effectively a high-risk pool, so that they could subsidize high-risk clients, the public would have rejected the law even more strongly than he did. 

So he lied. And lied. And lied. And lied some more. 

And even at this late date, he could still choose to honor his promise. 

But he won’t, because he can’t — he always intended to take people’s insurance away from them.

    Thanks for posting Bunkerville. This guy got it right – while most seem to miss or skirt the real meanings of his actions/inactions.

      It is a better viewpoint that we are missing.


  2. Steve Dennis Says:

    Those are great points and we all know why Obama chose not to involve himself in trying to make this less painful on the American people. he considers this a transition policy to his ultimate goal of single payer. He wants the people to hurt so that he can gain support for a government takeover of the healthcare system.

      Well, our Alamo is upon us. How many will stand with us

    Sebelius hearing update: during this first hour the democrats are tearing the republicans a new asshole. Anyone who is surprised should crawl back under their rock.

      I was on the road today and missed the hearing. I will try and track it down, but I think I got the drift. I heard mark levin driving home.

    Reblogged this on Brittius.com and commented:
    Three years Obama knew about that, and he didn’t give a damn for the American People. Maybe these next three years, the American People will wake up and not give a damn for Obama.


    • bunkerville Says:

      It is going to be a close call. Some reporters got their insurance cancelled, so nothing like feeling the pinch once in awhile.


      • Brittius Says:

        The next four weeks might tell the story. If Israel hits Iran, and terror breaks out in America, let’s see if the situation is “properly” handled or if all Americans will be subjected to politically correct harassment. Obama will be in Boston today. That is where the real story will be, because he is scrambling to find out about RomneyCare.


      • bunkerville Says:

        I suspect he will cause some major story to overtake this one. Maybe bomb Iran for a starter. The story always gets overtaken. Hang on.
