Boehner to Obama: We want the individual mandate delayed for a year just like the employer mandate was

posted at 2:41 pm on July 9, 2013 by Allahpundit

Populism is fun.

“I never thought I’d see the day when the White House, the president came down on the side of big business but left the American people out in the cold as far as his health care mandate is concerned,” Cantor told reporters after House Republicans met for their weekly closed-door meeting. “And we, as House Republicans, are not going to sit still for that.”…

“What the president did is outrageous,” Boehner said. “The idea that we’re going to give big businesses a break on Obamacare but we’re going to punish small businesses and families? It’s wrong. And we’ll have another vote. Count on it.”

Here’s the letter Boehner sent to O inquiring about whether there are any more “glitches” and surprises in O-Care’s implementation that the White House knows about but is keeping quiet for now. ObamaCare repeal votes are usually party-line (or almost party-line) but I’m intrigued by this one. With the midterms getting closer and Democrats getting nervous about their party’s signature boondoggle, maybe a vote demanding a modest one-year delay in the individual mandate will draw more than token support from them. That means nothing legislatively since Reid will certainly block the House bill in the Senate, but it’ll be spun by the GOP as a bipartisan vote of no confidence in ObamaCare generally. What’s a panicky Democrat who’s reluctant to humiliate Obama to do?

While they’re busy taking votes, here’s one more for them to take:

If Republicans were smart, they’d draft a bill based on the following mantra: “No Subsidization Without Verification.” That is, they should take a stand that nobody can receive subsidies through Obamacare before the government has a system in place that can independently verify the information as accurate.

If such a piece of legislation becomes law, it would effectively delay one of the central provisions of Obamacare indefinitely, because after more than three years, the government has not been able to figure out a way to meet the technological challenge of verification. As stated in the HHS rule published Friday: “After reviewing and considering the appropriate public comments and completing a technical analysis, we have concluded that the service described in the proposed rule is not feasible for implementation for the first year of operations. This service would involve a large amount of systems development on both the state and federal side, which cannot occur in time for October 1, 2013.”

Of course, Obama and his fellow Democrats would likely block such an attempt by Republicans. If they do so, they will be put into the position of explaining to the American people why they are willing to hand out a over a trillion dollars of taxpayer subsidies without proper procedures in place to prevent fraud.

Boehner mentions O waving bye-bye to ObamaCare’s anti-fraud provisions in the clip, but it seems to be a secondary line of attack after the populist individual/employer mandate talking point. It shouldn’t be. The average low-information voter might not be paying close enough attention to understand the distinctions between the two mandates. Everyone understands the point about verification, though. If we don’t leave people to the honor system in reporting their taxes, why should we leave them to it in demanding welfare for health insurance? That hits taxpayers in the gut. Not sure the mandate point does.

Yeah, big IF. You’re talking to the Stupid Party here so don’t hold your breath.

“This is what happens when you ram through a gigantic bill that no one has ever read.”

Hello Republicans, you just helped pass a huge amnesty bill which (if we are to believe what they say it’ll do versus what we have heard it’ll do) no one has read either!!! Do you really think there aren’t these kinds of gems for the American people in that bill?

Ukiah on July 9, 2013 at 2:53 PM

Boehner is a moron.

Complaining about the individual mandate sounds like partisanship.

Complaining about opening the door for more lawlessness and fraud strikes a sharper blow. It also enables him to show once again what a corrupt administration this is.

Boehner probably didn’t do so, because it would help in opposing Rubio’s amnesty. And Boehner wants the common-area maintenance fee for his home in the gated community in West Chester, Ohio, to go down.

Dusty on July 9, 2013 at 2:57 PM

They are NEVER going to delay that part. They want individuals to get used to the bennies of Obamacare so when the employer mandate disaster is put into place; people are used to the subsidies and it will be impossible to repeal without a backlash.

Trick– make people dependent then hit them with the disaster.

Boehner is talking about bad it is to pass a bill no one’s read when, at the same time, he’s salivating at the prospect of passing the Senate’s immigration bill, another “deluxe” bill that no one has read and that is essentially impossible to implement properly.

I really think these giant bills are meant to break down the rule of law so the president can simply rule by decree. We’re seeing more and more evidence of this from Obama who has simply unilaterally declared the authority to not implement his own laws.

Doomberg on July 9, 2013 at 3:03 PM

Boehner should have demanded that the law of the land be fully implemented.

They already did so in 2012 when they ran Romney, it’s just official now. Even if we’d won the law would never have been repealed. The GOP leadership likes it too, probably because they were fantasizing about what they could do with that power if they got one of their own in the presidency.

Doomberg on July 9, 2013 at 3:12 PM

Idiots. These people can’t make an issue work for them when it’s delivered with a butler on a tray.

By demanding the individual mandate be delayed they’ve conceded the legitimacy of Obama’s lawlessness in the delay, the mandate itself and the operational inevitability of the law. They should have taken the whole thing — the atrocious, unwieldly law, the capricious and unConstitutional move to delay (which they could have tied into Obama’s multiple unilateral moves like this), the inherent unfairness of the move — and beaten Obama senseless.

rrpjr on July 9, 2013 at 3:12 PM

Delays for a year are just like continuing resolutions and sunsetting tax cuts – completely pointless because it only keeps business and people in their holding pattern waiting a little longer for the other shoe to drop. This administration is such a trainwreck that we’re actually rooting for stagnancy in it’s fight vs. complete collapse.

How about delaying the whole thing, not just the mandates, and for 199 years not just 1. Then wait and see if the government in 2213 is still stuck on stupid.

Gingotts on July 9, 2013 at 3:13 PM

What Boehner has done here (aside from missing the umpteenth opportunity to kick in Obama’s teeth) is prove how fatally compromised the Republican Party is.

They CANNOT operate at a different or higher level than the democrats. They can’t even conceive if it.

rrpjr on July 9, 2013 at 3:15 PM

Completely misplayed. Completely wrong.

There is no statutory provision for these delays. This is lawlessness and rule by whim, period.

There are only two options:

1) Repeal in whole, in part, or alter the relevant statutes
2) Enforcement to the letter

The only way to legally postpone the mandates is to do it by law. Congress can pass a bill, Obama can sign it.

We simply can not have selective enforcement of the law, regardless of whether we like it or not.

Shame on Mr. Boehner for not standing up for the rule of law.

allanbourdius on July 9, 2013 at 3:16 PM

Boehner will do the will of Barry and the insurance companies.

It’s pretty much a typical “big business – lefty” axis play against the middle, as usual.

If we don’t leave people to the honor system in reporting their taxes, why should we leave them to it in demanding welfare for health insurance? That hits taxpayers in the gut. Not sure the mandate point does.

I do have to disagree with this a bit though. The anti-fraud provisions are indeed a good point, but in attacking the law it is far more useful to focus on the approach of this administration in handling the mandates. Then point out the many other reasons why it’s a disaster.

The mandates are the most hated part of the law. It’s what makes this legislation fascist, and the focus on giving breaks to businesses and special interest groups on the backs of the individual taxpayer hammers that home. Even if the common voter doesn’t understand what constitutes economic fascism, they do understand when they’re on the diarrhea end of a turd of a situation.

Gingotts on July 9, 2013 at 3:22 PM

… they will be put into the position of explaining to the American people why they are willing to hand out a over a trillion dollars of taxpayer subsidies without proper procedures in place to prevent fraud.

And 52% of voters will happily take those subsidies without complaint. That’s what they’re used to, right — gubmint freebies?

Way to legitimize this administration’s lawlessness by calling for yet more lawlessness.

We need to seriously stop calling this disaster Obamacare. He will be gone in a few years. We need to tag this thing to the democrats. I suggest we start calling it Ratcare. Both because of the fact rat is a part of democRAT and a laboratory rat is how we will be treated under this law. Also the graphics for Ratcare could be priceless.

Nope.

He is succeeding beyond his wildest dreams. With the assistance of the left, the media, and the GOPe. A bipartisan dream.

It took Obama 3 tries to get the stupid party to bite. This bill is all downhill from here. Once the Republicans get their fingerprints on this bill, no matter how small, it’s going to be their fault, whenever anything bad happens.

I’m sorry, but the Republicans should be pointing out how terrible this whole bill is, how bad it is for the country and how the only way to fix it is repeal and replace. Postponing this and that isn’t going to do anything to improve this disaster and the Republicans would have been much better off letting Obama cut his head off by helping businesses and not helping the little guy, and then coming in to save them on January 3rd.

The Democrats are wholly responsible for the writing of this bill and the President, as chief executive, is responsible for its execution. Now the stupid party wants to get their hands dirty with it. NO, NO, NO, don’t do it, please.

bflat879 on July 9, 2013 at 3:29 PM

“This is what happens when you ram through a gigantic bill that no one has ever read.”

This monstrosity was a swindle and a power grab by the Dems from the word ‘go’…and Beaner should call it what it is and call those behind it crooks in public. But he won’t-maybe he’s just peeved because he didn’t get his cut?

At any rate, anybody out there who can get on this gravy train or food stamps or whatever, I’m fine with it. Get what you can out of what’s left of the system before it crashes and burns. You paid for it so recoup some of your losses before the gate swings completely shut.

Dr. ZhivBlago on July 9, 2013 at 3:29 PM

I wouldn’t be too hard on Boehner here. He and Cantor are taking a page from the Democrat’s playbook by pandering to LIV’s with a populist message. He can say it while maintaining the larger position that Obamacare is an epic clusterfark and needs to be scrapped.

Conservative Game Plan:
1) Explain to the people that the Republicans WERE right, give them the thumb on the nose, fingers in the air nanny nanny poo poo face and declare that this WILL NOT WORK!!!

2) Explain how this IS hurting businesses who are now limiting the amount of hours of their employees. Explain how since the bill was signed into law, businesses have spent the past year “preparing” for this…that’s not going to be ready, citing the numerous areas including the HHS list of exemptions.

3) Detail how even the unions are turning against this bill

4) Go through the items that have been discarded (1099 reporting) which “sounded” like a good idea at the time.

But for God’s sake…DO SOMETHING TO PREVENT THIS MONSTROSITY!!!

HarryStar on July 9, 2013 at 4:02 PM

Well, that was the point of my comment about oneupmanship at 2:57PM. It’s not about the individual mandate. It’s about violating the oath of office, Obama with his waiver of the BM and Boehner suggesting he’s willing to violate his by asking for Obama to do it a second time with the IM. It’s not up to either of them and if they want to one or the other or both, it requires passing legislation to that effect.

I asked a question in the Headlines on the Romney post about this, but it is much more pertinent here. It was if this waiver is clearly not within the power of the President, who will obviously have to put it in writing via the IRS, and this is determined to be invalid at sometime in the future, will those who didn’t pay be subject to back taxes with fines and penalties assessed?

As I understand it only one Congressman is needed to file suit on these waivers. What will it take to be resolved by SCOTUS, a year maybe? If SCOTUS finds the waivers to be unconstitutional, then the taxes must be paid for the back year, or that would be what you’d expect if we were following the rule of law around here.

I had been surprised that no Congressman had filed suit yet, but on thinking about it, all I think we have so far is some bluster by Obama about a waiver. The law is on the books, so how is the waiver effected legally? Obama in a press release? Jay Carney at a Press Briefing? Something placed in the Federal Register? What the mechanism for making this bluster official? Until that happens it’s kind of silly for a Congressman to file suit, and it’s even sillier for businesses to not comply until it actually happens officially.

I swear, Obama is, to use an AoSHQ term, just mindf%$king the whole country right now and he thinks it’s funny. He’s no Constitutional Scholar as we normally use the term, he’s just a Community Society Disrupter.

Dusty on July 9, 2013 at 4:27 PM

It’s not ObamaCare, it’s ObamaFare: a whole new form of welfare, paid for only in part by massive tax increases.

The worst thing about Boehner’s idea is those taxes will keep clicking while the welfare side of the equation gets delayed, and the Democrats will instantly produce a new CBO analysis talking about how ObamaFare has magically “reduced the deficit” (right in line with their “forecasts”) and therefore is a good (great) thing!

Non-sensical statements in any real world discussion, yes, but this is the wondrous fantasy of Obamaland.

Also rf. What If A President Romney Had Suspended Obamacare?

SoRo:

Here is where the technocrat’s mask slips, and the ideologue smiles through. If the Obama team can get away with picking and choosing what parts get implemented and when, flaunting the law to satisfy their electoral aims, why not do it?

Congress, not just Republicans, not just the House, should be livid over this. The Supreme Court ruled that the line-item veto is unconstitutional in Clinton v City of New York, 524 U.S. 417 (1998). Is Obama not granting himself a de facto line-item veto? If the line-item veto passed by Congress and signed into law by the President was unconstitutional, is there any doubt that Obama’s de facto line-item veto is even more unconstitutional?
