ObamaCare Killed Immigration Reform


Remember when Obama said that:

·         If you liked your doctor or insurance plan youcould keep it?

·         ObamaCare would reduce insurance costs by $2500per year?

·         Everyone would be covered?

·         ObamaCare would reduce the national debt?

This is what Barack Obama told us would happen if Congress passed ObamaCare.  That is what the MSM told us would happen if ObamaCare passed. 

Were they lying, or were they stupid? 
If you were a member of the media, which one were you?
If you voted for Obama. which one were you?
It is now becoming apparent that one of the main reasons that even jellyfish Republicans will not pass an immigration bill is that after the latest debacle in ObamaCare no-one believes the President.  No one.

Even Suck-ups like Chuck Todd knows this.
 
Something did change in the immigration debate last week. But it wasn’t the realization that there is no “trigger” to force the House to act. That has been true since the beginning of the debate. What changed this week is that Republicans lost all trust in President Obama’s ability to faithfully execute the laws of the United States.

On Tuesday of last week, news broke that the Treasury Department was about to announce it’s intention to delay implementation of Obamacare’s employer mandate for a year. Nothing in the law gives the Obama administration authority to delay the mandate, but he did it anyway.

As bad as that blow to the rule of law was, the Department of Health and Human Services followed it up with 600 pages of regulations Friday, one of which also delayed a requirement that states verify the eligibility information submitted by applicants. Not only is this also not authorized in the statute, but, as National Review’s Yuval Levin notes, it is also an open invitation for those wanting health care subsidies to defraud taxpayers.

“They have shown no respect for traditional Constitutional separation of powers,” Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., told National Review‘s John Fund about the impact of the Obamacare delays on the immigration debate, “and that makes it difficult to pass laws where the fear is that they will simply ignore the parts they don’t like.”
