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....

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.
