Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The wobbly mess, which is "Obamacare," continues to wobble.
Everyone knows this hastily patched together bill, which became law, was like trying to get 25 pounds of mud in a 10-pound sack.
Last week the Administration said they would amend their own law, which is one the books and give business a break.
They'll push the business mandate back a year.
But, still want individuals to just come on down to the health care exchange and just get some insurance.
You were supposed to show you were elgible to get insurance, but now, in a panic, the Administration is just saying if you can fog a mirror....
You qualify for a government freebie.
Two things are at work.
This big plan is not ready.
I said, last week, the nicest thing I can say about the law is that it is is "un-weildy."
But two things are in place.
They know if and when business has to give employees insurance they'll start cutting back hours and firing employees.
That would be a slaughter for Democrats at the ballet box for 2014, that's why they've pushed business portions back until 2015.
The thing they are trying to do is get as many people on the government teet as soon as they can because they know many of the American people have turned into "gimme sponges" and once on that free teet, they will never want to let go.
But, the President may have a constitutional problem.
Since when can you only enforce parts of a law you want?
They said George W. Bush was an imperial president? President Obama looks like King Henry the 8th compared to Bush.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
