… It Was Not Just the ObamaCrapCare Architect [#IRS Subsidies Rule]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 6th,2016

.. no , it was not just the architect of ObamaCrapCare ..

.. the IRS itself was in on the shenanigans …

.. an excellent column by Kim Strassel [WSJ] points out that the career staff at the IRS initially followed the law , to the letter . That meant that it would be subsidies in state – based exchanges ONLY . The situation changes when it was kicked up for political backing to the highest levels of the Service …

.. [h/t — NationalReview]..
.. [link] to the article ..

.. at that level , the chief counsel [a political appointee] and the Commissioner [ditto] had a very serious problem . Most likely , they got heavy duty heat from the ObamaCraps at the White House . Guess What Happened ?? ..

.. the ruling changed . by July of 2011 , the ruling came out in its final form , having it as subsidies for ALL … a couple of weeks later , Professor Jonathan Alter of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland , Ohio and Micheal Cannon of the Cato Institute came out with their famous paper … [– note — it is available from the Social Science Research Network , and there is a link , [here]]

… Victory for the Rule of Law [#IRS tax subsidies]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 9th,2015

.. the ruling in Pruitt v. Burwell [Sebelius] came through the other day . Oh , Boy , it was a doozy , and it was a winner ..

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the legal ruling ..

.. Pruitt is another case that takes on the I.R.S. playing games with the federal exchange subsidies in ObamaCrapCare . The plain letter of the law does not allow for them . The I.R.S. tried to push this through , and people have fought them , tooth and nail …

.. this time , for the first time at the district court level , a district court judge has sided with the folks attempting to make the federal government hold itself to the plain letter of the law . Judicial doctrine gives the government a certain amount of leeway to implement a law . However , they are only given so much leeway …

.. this leeway [“Chevron Deference”] does require the Government to follow the law . Sometimes , the Government can be a little creative in its interpretation . However , it cannot go too far . If the Government does not follow the plain letter , text , and intent of the law , then un – uh …

.. that is what Pruitt v. Burwell has done . It has also done more …

… Big ObamaCrapCare Oops [#designer speaks intent]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 13th,2014

.. oh , I bet the ObamaCraps in the White House have to be groaning at the outcropping of this ..

.. this guy , along with former Sens. Ben Nelson [now the head of the Natl Association of Insurance Commissioners] and Max Baucus [the US Ambassador to China] helped design and write the principal ObamaCrapCare bill . It is the one that originated in the Senate . They know the bill . Baucus was the principal author . This other guy was the co – author . Ben Nelson was one of the last votes to come on board , and why , among other things : …

.. there is no ” public option … ” , and

.. the tax credits are offered through exchanges established and controlled by states …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the speech …

.. It is also why the ObamaCrapCare bill has the Constitutional ” origination ” problem … All bills for the raising of ” revenue ” [taxation , as well as spending] are supposed to originate in the House of Representatives . This one did not . Whoops …..

… Dr. Charles is Spot On ! [#Halbig v Burwell]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 1st,2014

.. what Dr. Krauthammer is referring to is the guy in the video clips is the principal non – congressional author of the ObamaCrapCare bill …

.. he picks up precisely on point that where the Halbig and King cases are concerned , the plaintiffs are clearly in the right …

.. [h/t — NiceDeb.wordpress.com]..
.. [link] to the video clip …

.. just ask former senators Ben Nelson [Ne] and Max Baucus [Mt] . They both know the full truth . Nelson ‘ s is one of , if not the last . vote that was sought for the bill in the Senate . Baucus used to chair the Senate Finance Committee , and was the bill ‘ s principal congressional author …

… Victory with Halbig v Sebelius [#halbig v burwell]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 26th,2014

.. well , I think I had better get used to the new name …

.. the other day , a 3 – judge panel voted [2 to 1] to overturn the JRS powergrab in ObamaCrapCare and its subsidies …

.. [h/t — WallStreetJournal/Opinion]..
.. [link] to the opinion piece ..

.. contrary to liberal bleating , the ruling does not destroy ObamaCrapCare . It just upholds the law , as it was originally written . As originally written , ObamaCrapCare is a colossal mess . We are finding that out now , God knows …

.. the problem is the design of the artifice . The whole house of cards is an economic monstrosity . It is designed by politicians with no experience in the private sector . These idiots never had any idea of how to make a payroll , how to deal with a bureaucrat [from the outside] …

.. simple , it is designed not to work . Nice try , dummies ! You flunked the test !! …
