Republicans suspect the White House is hiding ObamaCare fallback plan

Some Republicans say they simply do not believe that the Obama administration isn’t developing a fallback plan in case the Supreme Court dismantles a piece of the healthcare law this summer.

Sylvia Burwell, the secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), has repeatedly said there is no plan B if the high court rules that subsidies for insurance cannot be distributed through the federal exchange HealthCare.gov.

Burwell said Tuesday that the White House has “no plans” if the subsidies become illegal.

"No credible person would believe that," Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) told The Hill on Wednesday.

"It would be executive malpractice not to have a plan, a contingency plan, for what happens when that court ruling comes down, and I'm going to assume that this government doesn't practice executive malpractice,” he said.

Burwell’s warning, which was delivered to several GOP offices on Tuesday, dramatically raises the stakes for King V. Burwell. The high court will hear oral arguments in the case on March 4.

Both parties have repeatedly said that a plaintiff victory in the case could cause massive damage to ObamaCare, perhaps even crippling the law.

With such high stakes, Republicans say the administration must be crafting a plan to avert disaster.

"It's hard to fathom that the administration would bury its head in the sand and fail to engage in any contingency planning," said Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa.), who chairs the health subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The only plan they should have is to dismantle it. The Seniors who are more prone to needing medical care are getting slammed with doubled co-pays and deductibles. Many are putting going to specialists or not going at all. This thing is a mess. I want all of Washington to have to be on this stinking plan. Maybe then they will do something about it.

President Obama was allowed to destroy everything for the elderly and all Americans and nothing but talk is being done about.

I think when these politicians come to speak at events, there should be a hang-mans-noose hanging near where they are speaking.  Just to give them something to think about.   

They have 'one' fallback plan.  And that is a mandatory single payer system.  OF course the 'lawmakers' , The illegals, and the croonies of a corrupt regime ...won't have to abide by it.

HIS BACK UP PLAN IS PROBABLY A GUN TO OUR HEADS TO PAY UP OR ELSE . THESE ARE COMMIES AFTER ALL .

Justice Roberts has been plan B from day one. Not sure if he's Obama's dog or pony...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

They can suspect all they want, they lack the cohones to do anything. VIVA LA Teaparty!

This Administration has had one Plan since inception, dismantle the United States of America.   If our Representatives, after thousands of speeches, promising to protect us, look out for our welfare, blah, blah, blah, are afraid to do their Job, then we have an elected body of Cowards.    If these people are so crooked, so compromised, so dastardly incompetent, then we have little hope for a future free of slavery.

Although we may never get it through the senate, there could be letters of impeachment drafted now and this sorry ass President be made aware.  I'm at a point where all of those independents who take offense to that impeachment will only solidify what I've always said, an independent are not trustworthy and are not worth a s--t, they have no principles and would sell out their own parents.

Come on guys!!!  ALL Americans should know by now that TRAITOR President Obama THINKS LIKE A CRIMINAL.  Obama has "contingency plans" for every corrupt, criminal and illegal policy and action that he is CONTINUALLY trying to FORCE onto Americans --- the VAST majority of which disagree with his crimes and power grabs.

Call a spade a spade --- Obama is a corrupt criminal TRAITOR, and his actions and statements reinforce that description every day. 

If they have a plan count on the fact it will be far worse than the original.  Its about money not health care.

What do the republicans care anyway?  It's not like they're doing ANYTHING to stop Obama and his thugs from trampling all over us, the Constitution, and our civil rights....

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
