House Republicans intend to sue the Obama administration for unilaterally delaying the employer responsibility provision of the Affordable Care Act, Politico reported on Thursday, in effect trying to speed up the implementation of the health care law. The lawsuit will come after the administration twice delayed the provision -- which requires employers with more than 50 employees to pay a fine if they don

"Is it fair for the president of the United States to give American businesses an exemption from his health care law's mandate without giving the same exemption to the rest of America? Hell no, it's not fair," Boehner told House Republicans. "We should be thinking about giving the rest of America the same exemption that Obama last week gave businesses."

That's the Republican Party for ya. They're always stickin' it to the average American and giving corporations whatever they want, but here's the one time they care about the people!

In another attempt to take away their health care, of course.

Gee Derek.

How about Obama implement the law as it was written?

With the roll out of ACA he has literally been re-writing the law which is something he has ZERO authority to do.

You would go ------- of if '16 a GOP prez were to unilaterally undo parts of ACA.

Yeah Jeff, never mind about the actual healthcare of the American people, the millions who now have healthcare insurance and who can get preventive care and avoid potentially terminal illnesses. Never mind that we are beginning to bend the cost curve back towards sustainability. No, you and the Republicans aren't interested in any of that. To you, it's only about finding political points to attack this President. Hopefully, most Americans will recognize the pointlessness of your attacks that aren't designed to help any American but only to try and tear down a President who has actually tried to do something important for the American people. What a complete tool you have become. You remind me of a ventriloquist dummy that says whatever the ventriloquist decides you will say.

"In May of 2006, just days before the end of open enrollment, President Bush took administrative action towaive "penalty fees for very low-income seniors and people with disabilities who sign up late" and allowed "the same impoverished beneficiaries to sign up for Medicare drug coverage until Dec. 31."
"In other words, you can apply after May 15th without penalty," Bush told seniors during an event in Florida. "And that's important for low-income seniors to understand."
Like Obamacare, the launch of President George W. Bush's prescription benefit plan was hampered by technical glitches, setbacks, and mass confusion. As the May 15 deadline for enrollment loomed, a bipartisan group of lawmakers advocacy organizations, and a surprising number of newspaper editorials, urged the administration to extend the enrollment period and protect seniors from the penalties associated with late enrollment."

the House GOP have no standing to sue. They have to pass legislation that Obama has to sign in order to gain standing.

Your GOP working for a better yesterday

The president responsible for the enforcement of federal laws: "he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed."

He has the authority to ensure that Laws are faithfully executed...therefore his authority is NOT zero.

Good luck pandering to your rabid base with your frivolous lawsuit Congress. Maybe when you get done wasting our time and money on frivolous pursuits at making this President look bad and constantly trying to undermine him you can get back your real jobs. If you can remember what they are.

Easy conviction on grounds of perjury... if you like your insurance policy, you can keep it. Obama lied big time, many times.

It's AMAZING to hear the rightards implicitly argue in favor of the employer mandate. Obama must be blacker than I thought.

Danni and her lappups want to overlook the people who have lost insurance, whose coverage dropped lower while premiums escalated, people with cancer who are going deeper in debt because of this clown.....oh, just 'collateral damage'... just another welfare distribution program is all this has been and in the end, will cost more than keeping these refuges in style...!!!

JEFFJ -

Do you honestly support suing the POTUS over this issue? With eventual impeachment?

President Obama then granted a second delay to businesses employing 50 to 99 workers, extending their time to comply. Due to the flaws in the ACA that placed an undue burden on those employers,

**Republicans also supported the delays, but they argue that the president and Congress must act together to change the law. They do not support Obama's decision to do it himself"**

Now they are down to suing over something they support?

Is that cologne "Desperation" they are wearing?

Gee, the GOP demand something they have refused to do since 2008.

How novel.

Talk about knuckleheads smoking crack in the bathroom. Trouble is no one will arrest them.

So.... Is there an actual case? Or is this random speculation about something that may become true?
