President Obama: Functioning Government, 0 – Obamacare Implementation, 1
From Roll Call, the President has officially admitted his train wreck health care law is more important than keeping the federal government running:
“The Administration strongly opposes House passage of H.J. Res. 59, making continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2014 and for other purposes, because it advances a narrow ideological agenda that threatens our economy and the interests of the middle class,” the Office of Management and Budget said in the statement.
“The Resolution would defund the Affordable Care Act, denying millions of hard-working middle class families the security of affordable health coverage.
“If the President were presented with H.J. Res. 59, he would veto the bill.”
In other words, the President prefers his law – which isn’t good enough for Congress, Big Labor, Big Business, and other allies of the President – over a functioning federal government. It is a law that is opposed by a plurality of the American people, making his position the one that is pushing “a narrow ideological agenda.”
President Obama has no proof that defunding Obamacare “threatens our economy” when it is the nation’s biggest job-killer, but the statement makes clear nothing is more important to the President than implementing law – not the rule of law, equal treatment under the law, or what’s best for the American people.
