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....

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
