Quote of the Day

After Chief Justice John Roberts upheld ObamaCare, the refrain on the political left was "it's the law," but the last year has proven that the White House thinks the law is whatever it says it is. Mr. Obama has conceded that "obviously we didn't do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law." The right and only lawful way to repair ObamaCare is through another act of Congress. In Halbig, the judiciary can remind the Obama Administration of this basic constitutional truth. -- WSJ Ed Page
From a superb editorial on Halbig v. Sebelius "The plaintiffs are merely asking the judges to tell the Administration to faithfully execute the plain language of the statute that Congress passed and President Obama signed." Quote of the Day Posted by John Kranz at March 24, 2014 12:44 PM

Observe the irony wherein Republicans attempted to defeat or delay the Obamacare *snarkyvoice*[it's the Affordable Care Act... Affordable, Care, Act]*/snarkyvoice* law, one of them even staging an old-fashioned fillibuster in that effort and, having failed to delay it, now seek to prevent Obama delaying all or part of his own law.

Presidential loyalists may reflexively charge the Republicans with hypocrisy for he's only doing what they begged him to do in the first place. What they don't see, or don't admit, is that the Republicans. Were. Right.
