Obamacare are set to be hit with higher premiums under new rules announced by the Health and Human Services Department.
quote:She was given that power---unilateral, carte blanche, whatever you want to call it---regarding the implementation of Obamacare. I remember reading about it somewhere quite a while back and thinking she could screw over whole segments of the population and Obama wouldn't get the blame. Annnnnd, here we go!
sabelius and her cronies can just make up new rules and penalties whenever they feel like?

Obama fines states for ins exchanges
There is no funding mechanism for federal exchanges in the law. I suspect this is being used to cover the cost of setting one up since the states are not going to do it.
A quick lawsuit should resolve this pretty quickly.
Face it. This guy does not give a single frick about the law. He is, in every sense, a dictator.
Now that I think about it, it seems like a political ruse:
Step 1. Fine the red states
Step 2. Red states pay fine - funds Obamacare
Step 3. Red states sue the federal government
Step 4. Red states win - GOP lemmings are happy and GOP politicians get cover.
Step 5. Federal government pays lawsuit out of a separate fund.
Unfunded Obamacare gets funded...that's the end game.
