Obama's Dramatic Violation of the Constitution
August 13, 2013
RUSH: Billings, Montana. Hi, Linda. You're next to the Rush Limbaugh program. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. First-time caller, long time listener. Just want to tell you how much I love you.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: Anyway, I wanted to ask you, is anybody suing President Obama for not following through on this legislation?
RUSH: You know, that is a fascinating question. Constitutionally, Obama can't do this.
RUSH: The legislation is the legislation. He cannot write legislation.
RUSH: He cannot unilaterally change legislation. He is not a dictator. This is not an imperial presidency, although he's acting like it.
RUSH: But if nobody is gonna hold him accountable for these kinds of things -- he can't do all of this. He can't grant these waivers. He can't do all these exemptions. He can't just decide, "I'm going to delay that part of the bill that I signed into law." He cannot write legislation, other than during the process, of course, he has a liaison with Congress and they might work, but after it's signed into law, he can't go in and change it. This is not how this happens. This is extraconstitutional, meaning outside the Constitution. It's the law of the land now. He just can't decide willy-nilly when it is and when it isn't.
RUSH: So what we have here is another change in Obamacare, which we're told is now the law, and therefore can't be changed, we're told we can't repeal it. Obama himself said, "We can't repeal it," and the Republicans don't want anybody to have health care and all those lies that he tells. We can't repeal it 'cause it's the law of the land. Well, he is. He is in effect repealing or delaying parts of it that are harmful to him politically. Can't do this. Suing him? Somebody should. You let a Republican president try to do this, change legislation to benefit him at the next election. You wait and see how far he'd get.
RUSH: One other thing to this, folks. This move today of delaying this whole business on the caps, out-of-pocket caps, expenses and so forth, this is going to really increase the profitability of insurance companies, for just this next year. The insurance companies are gonna be paying out far less. Their profits are gonna skyrocket. Now, I expect it will not be long until a bunch of far left extremist kook networks and websites figure this out, and they are going to start screaming bloody murder, and Obama knows this.
The thing about this, when I first learned of this today, that was the main point that confused me, because what Obama is doing here, make no mistake, he is delaying this implementation of consumer cost protections. Stop and think of that for just a second, now. In relationship to the elections in 2014, the Democrats want to win the House, hold the Senate, of course, he is delaying consumer cost protections. He is increasing insurance company profits. Why? How in the world is that going to help the Democrats? That's gonna anger a lot of people.
Well, there's a bunch of things at play. I really don't think there are too many consumers who know the nuts-and-bolts details of how it is they are going to save money. They just think they are. Start talking to them about caps on out-of-pocket expenses, I mean, they might actually understand that in more numbers than I think. But on one hand, insurance company profits skyrocket, consumer cost protections delayed to help Obama and the Democrats in 2014. How does that work? There must be something worse. What's worse than this?
What's the other side? The other side is if this is not delayed, everybody's premiums are going to skyrocket. And it is clear to me that Obama has made his own cost benefit analysis, and the Democrats have decided that there is less damage to their electoral chances by delaying all this and making sure that insurance premiums don't skyrocket than the other way. So insurance company profits are going to be much higher this year when the left wing, all the pajama clad bloggers and the anonymous lunatics that post comments to their websites and the dummkopfs at MSNBC, I mean, profit is like showing Dracula the cross. Insurance companies are among the most hated of all capitalistic entities on the left.
