Obama and his Obamatons resolutely covered their eyes and stuck their fingers deeper into their ears. As reported in Investors Business Daily:
- The Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services continued to implement ObamaCare and began adding 650 employees to dispense information about ObamaCare and conduct oversight of health insurance.
- The Obama administration also issued hundreds of "waivers" to specially selected businesses and groups that won't have to be bound by Obamacare like the rest of America.
- The IRS continued its planning to add new 1,000 new auditors and staffers plus new facilities to hold them, at an initial cost of $359 million.
- Obama included $465 million in his budget to implement the unconstitutional law. .
Attorneys for the Obama administration filed what is known as a motion to clarify late Thursday, asking U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson to make clear that states cannot ignore the new health care law while his ruling is being appealed.Why is the administration even bothering to go through the motions of pretending that they can't understand Judge Vinson's clearly worded ruling?
Annoyingly, for Obama, the group of Americans who can read plain English includes the governors of the 26 states that brought their case to Judge Vinson. These governors are responding to Judge Vinson's ruling, including Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell, who has made public his decision not to implement Obamacare. Parnell says he is concerned that doing so would violate his oath of office.
He said the Florida judge's ruling is the law of the land, as it pertains to Alaska, barring implementation of the federal law here.Alaska has thrown down the gauntlet in support of our Constitution and our legal system. We'll see what the good judge has to say.
