It’s about keeping power, baby!

Hal has a post dealing with the AG telling state AGs to enforce laws as they see fit in which several commenters pointed out that this was a terrible idea. Well, the reason it is terrible is simply that it leads to stuff like this:

The Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act, easing election pressure on Democrats.

As early as this week, according to two sources, the White House will announce a new directive allowing insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet ObamaCare’s minimum coverage requirements.

Prolonging the “keep your plan” fix will avoid another wave of health policy cancellations otherwise expected this fall.
The cancellations would have created a firestorm for Democratic candidates in the last, crucial weeks before Election Day.

The White House is intent on protecting its allies in the Senate, where Democrats face a battle to keep control of the chamber.

“I don’t see how they could have a bunch of these announcements going out in September,” one consultant in the health insurance industry said. “Not when they’re trying to defend the Senate and keep their losses at a minimum in the House. This is not something to have out there right before the election.”

Have no doubt that when Holder tells the AGs to use their discretion, what he means is for them to let their political views taint their decisions. He is lying when he says otherwise, and the way he has run the DOJ and this WH has been doing things should leave zero doubt in anyone’s mind that is what is going on.

The left plays for keeps. They cheat, steal, and will kill to win, and they do not care whom they have to steamroll to stay in power. These narcissistic scumbags may pretend to be doing things for the people, but only a fool would believe their charade. It’s about their power: keeping and growing it.

At this point it will only be the most deluded and stupid of people that think Obamacare has any redeeming qualities to it. It is a giant “fuck you” to everyone, including the people it portends to be helping the most. The left knows it is a disaster and will do far more damage than any incidental good that will come from it, and the way they have manipulated the rules to avoid paying at the polls should make that abundantly clear.

We live in a banana republic where the powerful are screwing us all over while pretending to do things to help the least well off amongst us. The reality on the ground, that the rich are getting richer, the poor, poorer, and the number of people voting for a living rather than working for one, are getting bigger, gets downplayed, or outright ignored, by a lying DNC propaganda machine pretending to be an independent media. That’s the change Obama promised us. Those of you that didn’t see that coming are even bigger fools than you think you are now that you can no longer pretend otherwise. The left cares only about power, and the idiots that don’t see that are screwing us all over.

    Hal has a post dealing with the AG telling state AGs to enforce laws as they see fit

    That’s not what my post is about and you know it. It’s about whether an AG is obligated to defend in appellate courts, a law they believe is unconstitutional.

    I’m sorry you guys can’t see the difference between what Obama is doing — rewriting a law on the fly without Congress — and what I’m arguing for — which is an executive branch that is constantly vigilant to STOP the government from doing things that violate our constitutional rights. It’s a difference between acting to expand govt power and acting to restrain it.

    If I were an Insurance Company being asked to waive these cancellations in violation of the law, I would sue Obama for encouraging my company to break the law. Isn’t he directly guilty of being an Accessory to a crime by encouraging these companies to willfully break the law? I just don’t understand why he isn’t being called on this by everyone.

    Get over yourself. They are totally related.

    Xetrov: IN a fantasy land where law was created and amended per the constitution, Yes. In progressive fantasy land, not so much. High Overlord Obama’s word IS the law?

    Every time Obama delays one of these things to help Democrats win an election, he’s basically admitting that the thing sucks donkey balls.

    “Our policies are so awesome, we are going to delay them until after the election!” – no one, ever.

    Yes, but nobody in the MSM will call him on it, and the sheeple will still vote D straight down come November because they think it gets them stuff. I hate to say it, but it really does point out that this country is on a one way trip down the crapper if blatantly unconstitutional and possibly illegal acts like this don’t wake people up.

    Not to mention that they’re falling WAY short of goals to even really break even to where we were in that supposedly horrible system, when people were supposedly just waiting for this to come along and grace us with it’s presence.

    Or that they’re essentially creating gov’t funded propaganda to try to convince people how awesome it is (despite the fact that they were supposed to already think it was totally awesome).

    Then again, even the radio ads for ready.gov piss me off. First, it takes the gov’t telling you to plan ahead for any problems? Second, The whole line of “you never know when they day before is, the day before” spots, which includes one about hurricanes… when for a good few decades that’s been patently untrue (there are multi-day warnings that a hurricane’s path might hit any area anymore) really annoys me. Same goes for floods really. Earthquakes? Sure. Tornados? Yeah. But hurricanes? Bah!

    The biggest problem with this is that it leads right to a situation where bad laws are enforced occasionally when someone who can’t be prosecuted for anything else gets a selective enforcement of a bad law. If a law is really unconstitutional or unpopular for that matter, then work to repeal it. Leaving it be allows it to come back and be selectively enforced later, too.
