Skip to comments.King: If Obama Wants to Change Health Care Law, ‘He Must Come to Congress’
Posted on 07/03/2013 1:33:55 PM PDT by Olog-hai
If President Obama wants to make changes to ObamaCare, he must come to Congress, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said on Wednesday.
Two years ago, the Obama Administration, through a memo from a Homeland Security Department bureaucrat, declared it would not enforce our nations immigration laws. Now the Obama Administration, through a blog post by an Assistant Secretary in the Treasury Department, is declaring it wont even enforce its own health care law on employers. We live in a Constitutional Republic. We are a nation governed by laws written by Congress, not memos and blog posts written by bureaucrats, King said.

Absolutely. He is not the King who can phone in his edicts from Africa. This should be brought before Congress to see how many Democrats are raring to vote for this disaster again.
But of course, dopey Boehner won’t say a word about this latest unconstitutional directive from The Won. That’s why Boehner needs to be replaced ASAP.
Can’t get a repeal through the senate? Then just defund, defang, defrock the damn thing! The Republican controlled congress should put a $$$ lock on it and on Obama.
Make the worm crawl!
Any regulation passed by un-elected government drones is taxation without representation but unfortunately we have the intestinal fortitude of the French!
This could be checkmate for 0 and his phony phackin’ health care scam.
“””If President Obama wants to make changes to ObamaCare, he must come to Congress, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said on Wednesday. “””
He clearly doesn’t know how dictatorships work.
So, what is Steve King going to do about it?
Probably the same thing that was done for Holder’s contempt of Congress.
I thought the same thing when I heard it. We are now a third world dictatorship.
He is RIGHT. Obama can’t choose what laaw to enforce and what law NOT to enforce or what part of a law he wants to ignore.
His repsonsibility is to enforce the laws as passed by Congress.
If this bastard tried to pull this, he should be impeached.
“We are a nation governed by laws written by Congress, not memos and blog posts written by bureaucrats,”
who could say it any better?
A real conservative Congress would have done this and more, already. Also, if the GOP Senators were themselves conservative, it would have been “filibuster city” in there since 2011.
I wish that Congress would just refuse to fund it.
exactly. you hear that boehner?
Steve King will be presented with interesting facts found in his NSA file and will never mention O or O care again.
So what......nothing can be done to prevail against the treacherous tyrants
So long as he breathes, he has the power
WE HAVE A DICTATORSHIP!
You mean like DOMA?
Amen. I have been waiting all day for someone to bring this up.
What part of ‘fascism’ do you not get?
If anyone wondered why he gave all this to HHS now you know.
Obama is going to deny any knowledge of this and blame Sebillious.
>> He is not the King who can phone in his edicts from Africa.
Of course not. But I swear I saw that headline as “If King Obama wants to change the health care law...”
... and it didn’t seem surprising. What have we come to?
If the employer mandate delay goes to the supremes and they push it back to the House, then the house needs to tie the employer mandate to the individual mandate when it votes to nix it.
I'm glad King is saying something. Except for Cruz, the rest of the GOP has been awfully silent today.
That reminds me, has 0bama rescinded his illegal appointments to the NLRB yet? Two Federal courts ruled his appointments unconstitutional but I believe he’s taken no action resulting from their decision.
“...Cant get a repeal through the senate? Then just defund, defang, defrock the damn thing!...”
Yeah, sounds good, but they can’t get that through the Senate, either...
and then, the low-information-voters,
abetted by the main-stream-media,
would blame the House for the government-shutdown.
We are federales.
We don’t got no budget!
We don’t got to have no budget!
We don’t got to show you no steenkin’ budget!
(hmmm...government shut-down...I happen to like the sound of that.)
This is the latest and most egregious violation of the Constitution. It doesn’t even rise to the level of political philosophy.
It exceeds by lightyears what Nixon did in Watergate. This is about pure pwer and corrupting the entire electoral process with a lie.
Well, we’re in desperate need of a constitutional crisis. The president cannot spend money that is not authorized by the congress and he’s running the nation into the ground with his Marxist agenda. We need some patriots with cajones to step up to the plate. Cruz, King, Sessions, et al, where are you? It’s been a long time since we’ve heard any patriotic voices in the senate. We need a constitutional rebellion!
I disagree, we need to go Alinsky on them. Demand that they follow all the rules and comments that they made. The exact same coverage that I have now, the same doctor, and less cost.
When they can't deliver in time for 2014 keep pounding it.
Show commercials with him and the DemoncRATS making these promises and then the excuses why it is not in place. At the end the tagline is "How can we trust him/ them with anything ever again?"
We could only wish:
Thank you Mr King, so are all ya all GOP nimwits going to mention O Butthole needs to go to Congress to change the law that the Congress passed?
“...were in desperate need of a constitutional crisis...”
Well, hell’s bells, Jim, we’ve already got a damn constitutional crisis.
It’s just that not enough of the right people seem to notice or care about it.
You think we could turn out several million in the streets like the egyptians just did?
Actually, he can do anything he wants.
After all this time, it’s blatantly apparent that no one is willing to try to stop him.
No. He's got his fingers in his ears, and is loudly yelling, "blah, blah, blah, blah....."
Washington's version of Kabuki theater plods on.
This is his tar baby. At the risk of using racist language, I say stick it to him.
S. King doesn’t have to do anything.
If the companies don’t comply the and provide health care as required by law, the employees can sue the company.
They may not have to pay a penalty to the govt for not complying but if they don’t want to get sued they will comply and provide health care.
Honestly. The ONLY thing that matters to this obamanation is the next election. These people are arrogant and stupid beyond compare. A dangerous combination...but They’re in a checkmate scenario now. Either they cave, or they overstep..at which point the rest of the country will see what they really elected for...and if that’s what they want..then we’ll have unmasked them, too.
The USA is in the midst of a constitutional crisis, it simply isn't being recognized.
When the IRS targets legitimate political organizations on order of the executive branch, that is a constitutional crisis. When the AG decides which laws to enforce and which perps to prosecute on racial grounds, that is a constitutional crisis. When the organs of the government gather information on all domestic telecommunication, that is a constitutional crisis. When that information is used to blackmail justices, that is a constitutional crisis.
Sorry, JR, but I don't think it augers well for my country if your country turns from a constitutional republic into a fascist dictatorship.
Steve King fights for us. He has been criticized by the R party, his own party, but he tries to do the right thing regardless.
“So, what is Steve King going to do about it? Probably the same thing that was done for Holders contempt of Congress.aka Nothing.”
The Congress has no armed muscle to force a president to do the bidding of the Congress. None. What do you suggest Congress do?
The only time in US history that Congress defied executive power with armed force was in the Reconstruction Act. The US House under Rep. Stevens effectively stripped President Johnson of his title of Commander in Chief.
What should the US House do?
Nor is he a dictator and can just off of the top of his head give away Billions of dollars.
I think Obama is loosing it. They need to pull back on supplying him nose candy.
Eric, your right, I should have been time specific!
Right now I could make a fortune selling them deodorant mixed with SPF 40 so they would not get their stinking armpits sunburned while surrendering.
And I am un-proudly part French heritage! Yuck!
Oh really? It seems more like a dictatorship controlled by a communists black Muslim, the anointed King Obama.
Obama don't need no steenkin' Congress anymore.
