Administration: Millions don’t want ObamaCare 'taken away'

The Obama administration is touting its better-than-expected ObamaCare enrollment period as it turns to next month’s pivotal Supreme Court fight over the healthcare law.

Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell argued Wednesday that the 11.4 million sign-ups show the law “is now an important part of everyday lives of millions of Americans.”

She also argued that people are “tired of the back and forth here in Washington” about the law, which she stressed was here to stay.

“While we have more work to do, the numbers tell the story, and the story is clear. The Affordable Care Act is working and families and businesses and taxpayers are all better off as a result,” Burwell told reporters.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments next month on whether it is legal for subsidies to be distributed to people who buy health insurance on the federal exchange, HealthCare.gov.

The challengers say a provision in ObamaCare stipulates that the subsidies can only be provided to people who purchase insurance from an exchange established by a state.

The Obama administration rejects that interpretation, saying it's clear that the law was written to make subsidies available to everyone who qualifies.

The tyranny of the minority.

..and millions don't want it forced upon them. Some of us mean it. The numbers will begin to expose themselves as enforcement ramps up to being more brutal. I figure we all may meet in a gulag someday.

Nope 

I'll go to a dirt nap first ! 

IF YOU GET MY DRIFT...

Liars and Lunes are in charge.

Of course, it's all lies,lies and more lies.  I guarantee you, there are many millions more that want Ovomitcare to disappear than want it to stay.  

That would be the ones who are getting it for free, not the ones paying for it !   Let's not forget the 40 plus million illegals !

they need to pay for their own health care. do not expect me to pay my families health care plus yours. you who want this get your heads out of obamas ass.

 

That law was illegally written by democraps only.  Not one republican signed onto it.  It was also a closed door meeting, president with democraps only.  There should not be any subsidies.  If there is, I'm sure it's for all the illegals.  It was started in the senate, not the house.

Since when does minority rule?

It was forced upon them by morons that lied to us and said trash like, we will find out what is in it after we sign it. What moron believes this.These socialist ObamaDON'Tcare bastards are killing us.

YOU'RE NOT FREE when you are forced to do something you don't want to do or can't afford to do.  AND YOU ARE A SLAVE if you are forced and fined to comply with no choice.

Devin,

      And that is what we get when we vote into power a MARXIST/COMMUNIST/ISLAMIST DICTATORSHIP.  Too many low-information voters and just plain idiots did vote for national suicide and now we are all paying the price for that mass stupidity.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
