The stage is set for the next high-profile legal fight over Obamacare.

A federal district judge on Wednesday delivered a blow to the Obama administration, ruling that the House Republican lawsuit against ObamaCare can move forward.

"The Court concludes that the House has standing to pursue those constitutional claims," Judge Rosemary Collyer wrote in a 43-page decision.

The ruling is an early victory for Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who has repeatedly touted the lawsuit to his conference. It also gives new hope to Republicans who have been stymied so far in their efforts to dismantle the five-year-old healthcare law.

"I am grateful to the Court for ruling that this historic overreach can be challenged by the coequal branch of government with the sole power to create or change the law," Boehner wrote in a statement Wednesday.

Still, the court cautioned that Wednesday's ruling should not be seen as a sign that either side will win the case: "The Court stresses that the merits have not been briefed or decided; only the question of standing has been determined."

The Obama administration plans to immediately appeal the decision.

Another BS story to keep the people in line. 

Obama administration will appeal to a court with a judge that he appointed and we're right back where we started from. GOP needs to focus on the Iran deal. This will be the fall of America.

Well, standing is, I suppose, something.  Kneeling might be better.  We're getting to flat-lined pretty fast, though, here . . .

Is this for real or just another show?

 Judge Rosemarry Collyer Stand Your Ground !!!!!!.

This law must not stand. Obama must be tried and pay for his actions. The Terrorist in Chief has much to answer for and has to be held accountable.

I doubt Bohener has the guts to take this to the next level.  Hopefully he will be kicked out.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
