Default Obama Urges Followers To Ignore Federal Judge

The ACA should never have passed because the Constitution never gave the federal government the power to force people to buy a product. Saying the mandate was a tax was just an excuse to force this tyrannical law on the people, so I was glad to see a judge throw it out. Obama, whose policies proved that he didn't like our country or its people should just shut the hell up. He is the first ex-president in history to criticize another president in office, and I can't remember anyone ever telling people they should ignore the ruling of a federal judge.

Barack Obama took to social media yesterday to urge his followers to ignore the ruling issued Friday by a federal judge and go ahead and sign up for free government healthcare anyway.

One day after a Texas judge struck down the former president’s signature legislation as unconstitutional, the former demagogue seemed to treat the ruling as if it meant nothing.

“You might have heard about a federal court decision on a Republican lawsuit trying to strike down the Affordable Care Act in its entirety,” he said in Facebook post. “As this decision makes its way through the courts, which will take months, if not years, the law remains in place and will likely stay that way.”

The ruling, Obama claimed, “changes nothing for now.”

The phrase ‘you might have heard’ seems entirely appropriate for Facebook audiences, many people agree, given the censorship that is growing on that platform against ‘fake news.’

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor cited both a Supreme Court ruling and recent Congressional law to strike down the massive, expensive socialist healthcare plan as unconstitutional.

“The remainder of the ACA is non-severable from the individual mandate, meaning that the Act must be invalidated in whole,” O’Connor wrote in a 55-page opinion.

“A lot of good people are fighting to ensure that nothing about your care will change. The ACA protects your pre-existing conditions, no matter how you get your insurance,” Obama promised yesterday.

Many people wonder if this will go the way of all his other ‘promises.’https://conservativedailypost.com/ob...%20-%20Engaged

Default Re: Obama Urges Followers To Ignore Federal Judge

Actually, Obama is correct...

The law that "struck down" the ACA as unconstitutional doesn't apply yet...

In December of 2017, Congress stripped the mandate from the ACA, but stipulated that this doesn't go into effect until 2019...

So, according to the judge, the ACA IS constitutional until there's no more mandate...and CURRENTLY, the mandate still applies...

So signing up for 2018 is perfectly OK (from a legal standpoint)...Obama said zip about "ignoring" anything...
