ObamaCare Delay and Ron Johnson

No surprise here.

There's another ObamaCare delay.

From Breitbart:

Understanding that Democrats have midterm elections in November, President Obama is poised once again to throw the rules out the window and establish another major delay in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. In February, the Galen Institute had already counted 35 major changes and delays in Obamacare, 18 of which Mr Obama has made unilaterally.

The Obama administration’s latest admission that the law is untenable will allow insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet minimum coverage requirements dictated by the Affordable Care Act. By the administration’s decision to allow policy holders to keep their current plan, even though they will not meet the requirements, Democrats will avoid having to contend with another wave of policy cancellations in the critical weeks before the election.
In response to Obama's latest ObamaCare dictate, Ron Johnson issued a pointed statement.
Johnson Comments on New Delay in Obamacare

Washington, D.C.
– Senator Johnson made the following remarks this afternoon in response to yet another delay in President Obama’s signature legislation.

"Today's announcement of another delay of Obamacare's coverage requirements is not surprising. Rather than admit that his health law has been a failure that continues to harm millions through lost coverage and higher premiums, President Obama has chosen to continue his strategy of delay. When in doubt, delay. When unpopular, delay. He is delaying this next bitter pill until after the midterm elections, a purely political act.

"This action, like so many other actions of this president, has been done without proper legal authority. Every American should take stock of what the president is doing to our constitution for political expediency. More is at stake than an election."

Obama is out of control.

He is abusing his power and office.
