Obama Administration Defies Court and Issues New ObamaCare Regulation

FL AG Pam Bondi
Robert Romano, ALG News: ALG President Bill Wilson urged Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, as well as the 26 co-plaintiff states, to take immediate action against the implementation of new ObamaCarew regulatory processes forbidden by Judge Roger Vinson's ruling:

"Despite the ruling of a federal court striking down the bill in its entirety, the Obama Administration has continued with the regulatory implementation of the health care takeover. Instead of the rule of law, we now have the rule of Obama.

"Today, published in the Federal Register, the Obama Administration has introduced a new regulation affecting student health plans. The problem is that the executive branch has no power to implement regulations based on voided legislation. These actions are barred by Judge Vinson's ruling. The Obama Administration has not even taken the basic step asking the courts for a stay of that decision.

"This lawlessness must not stand. Without a stay or being overturned, the Administration must follow Judge Vinson's decision.

"It is now evident that the Department of Health and Human Service is taking further steps to execute the law expressly forbidden by Judge Vinson's ruling. Obama has called the states' bluff by continuing with implementation. If the states are serious in their opposition to ObamaCare, they must take immediate action."

This is where the rubber meets the road for the states. Let's encourage Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to take immediate action against the new ObamaCare regulations being implemented by returning to court.

The Obama Administration is simply ignoring the ruling. It hasn't appealed it or sought a stay. It is just doing as it pleases. That's not the rule of law. The courts cannot act on their own, however, the states need to ask that they intervene.

Also, if you have not already done so, please go to KeepThePledge.org to urge House Republicans to keep their pledge to cut $100 billion in spending immediately.

House Republicans need to keep their pledge, Obama struggles to articulate his Egyptian policy, a court rules that penguins (which don't live in the U.S.) are protected under the Endangered Species Act, and why progressives are arrogant.

Gary Silverman writes in commenting on whether Republicans will keep their $100 billion spending cut pledge:

"They have a myriad of areas where funds could be cut and would not affect the running of the country. For example we should cut off the UN, we should end the Department of Energy, all funding to the arts and public air ways. The list goes on and on. Why are they having such a difficult time doing such a simple task? It is a quite disheartening."
I'm with you, Gary. When the current deficit is $1.5 trillion, cutting $100 billion only represents 6.6 percent of the problem. They're going to have to do this 15 more times just to get to a balanced budget. And you mention very important things that should be cut, but don't forget that the things you're mentioning are just non-defense discretionary spending. The parts that need to be cut is mandatory spending, which is over $2 trillion a year.

We all want Obama out of the White House, and there is no Republican nominee who can beat Obama. Except Paul. The only way to beat Obama is to steal his votes, and the only who who will do that is Paul. Obama only won the election because he got the Independent vote- it was anyone other than McCain/Palin. Independents and Democrats alike love Paul.
This is a serious situation. We can't just wait until 2016 when any old Republican is a shoe in. I fear the economy- and the dollar- will not last that long. It's time we stop worrying about the reputation of the Republican party (who will be their puppet) and start worrying about the future of this country.
Please, don't give up on Ron Paul. Reconsider what you think you know about him- the media has not done a fair job. He was completely ignored in the 08 election.

"Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country."
-Ronald Reagan
