White House sends out provocative tweet today, #ObamacareInThreeWords: “It’s The Law”

Why are they so worried? It’s not like anyone would ignore the law. I mean it’s not like freedom of speech is the law, or the right to bear arms, or freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, or due process, or equal protection, or the War Powers Act is the law. Wait…

Those things ARE the law and the Obama administration has chosen ignore them. Well, what’s good for Prez is good for the people I suppose. Maybe people should consider again just nullifying Obamacare.

It is our right under the law. We as a people can just say, “Go stick it in your ear.”

It's The Law

Sorry, 'O', you are incorrect as usual.
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

Redeeming parts of Obamacare?

I think the best thing they are doing is the establishment of the health insurance marketplace, and what is essentially a penalty fee waiver, although it remains to be seen if this will drive prices down (Jan. 1, 2014). Otherwise, this bill does not come close to doing anything other than mandating that citizens purchase healthcare from the pre-existing, over-expensive HMOs and PPOs, who are likely responsible for much of the legislation in the bill. I don't believe in half measures like this, so if liberals think this is a stepping stone to nationalized healthcare, there is a big difference. If they truly wanted to cut costs, they could have remodeled the entire system off of Medicare or the VA, and got rid of the middle man. Under the current program, health insurance companies now act, as essentially, 100% administrative overhead. They are, for all intents and purposes, a middle man. The attempt is admirable, but without price controls, and with mandated employer-provided healthcare, I fail to see how this will reduce the price of individual insurance costs significantly. It seems like the law is aimed at increasing profits for the HMOs (largely a construct of the Nixon administration's healthcare reform policies), while undermining medicare and medicaid. If you want to participate in this system, you will also need to file taxes, which seems to be an aim of the bill as part of stronger IRS enforcement to provide a revenue increase to the federal government. It would have been better to see a price gouging law on markets with unlimited demand, like healthcare. This would help prevent hospitals from charging $10,000 for an x-ray, as is the case here in NY.

To me the law does not go far enough if it is supposed to be mandated government-subsidized healthcare. In fact, this is not a valid description of what it is. The government is forcing you to buy goods and services from private entities, which seems quite out of alignment with American values. As long as the government continues to protect health insurance companies with impunity, prices will continue to skyrocket. Complaints from these same companies seem to have become faint, since it must clear to them that this is a way of reaching customers who can not truly afford care, or do not need it, without any effort whatsoever. This will effect the bottomline of these companies while undermining the doctor/patient relationship and giving the federal government potential access to confidential health information, of course, for "national security" reasons.

It will be interesting to see what happens once the enforcement provision goes into effect early next year.

The Federal Government Exceeds its Authority.

Not a single federal elected official was elected by a majority of eligible voters.

Maybe 25-30% minority at best.

If no one could know what was in it before they voted for it...

Then how can they create a legal status for something NO ONE could have possibly read before the vote tally was rushed? Representatives could not possibly represent themselves, or any of their constituency, if they had no time to review all of it.

That any of them voted for this is a shame on their names and a crime against their office; because there is nothing in their hasty and reckless actions moving this forward that could be considered lawful, however legal they might make it appear in statute.

In 3 words "Slavery was law" in the 1800's

But that didn't make it right. Nor does "its the law" make obamacare right.

Both are still slavery. Obamacare is class slavery to the medical industrial monopoly and the well trained monkeys prescribing drugs for big pharma.

From what I read before

Obama has already visited there. Perhaps there are diplomatic relations. I'd think carefully.

It is not the law

It is not the law for hundreds of corporations and unions that have been granted exceptions. And besides, it is unconstitutional, despite what the Supremes said.

There are a lot of negative responses on twitter. If you do not mind having another check mark added to your name in the enemies-list, feel "free" to add your own.

Who or What Does Law Apply To and Why?

Taxation is not called theft because we the people had no just power to steal that could be delegated. It is called taxation because one consents to be looted by their government for engaging in a taxable activity.

Well... since Obamacare

Well... since Obamacare relies on revenue from fines in order to fund itself, I'd think they'd be hoping people would not follow the law. Without the fines, the whole thing falls apart.

So is

Forgery, theft, extorsion and murder.

But Obama probably just found out about that.

He's as surprised as we are.
