Recently you ran a column by Paul Krugman who is a major advocate for this “trainwreck” to quote one of its original Senatorial backers Max Baucus. This law was passed by Congress with no Republican votes. It is the law. President Obama has, by executive fiat, changed the law by delaying the “Employer mandate” for a year. This action is unconstitutional on its face. The only constitutional way to delay the employer mandate is for Congress to change it. Congress cannot change the law because the Senate is controlled by the Democrats who have shown by their inaction that they could care less about the Constitution.
In arguing for this law when it was to be voted on, The President was not truthful about many aspects of this law. Many people have or will lose their health coverage. Many people have or will see their healthcare costs go up dramatically. The primary people who are uninsured, according to the latest polling, do not want to get this new health coverage. Many businesses are cutting back employees hours to part-time to avoid the regulations of this law. The Teamster’s Union has stated that this law will be the end of the 40 hour work week and turn many workers into part-time workers, with NO benefits.
