House Passes ‘Keep your Health Plan’ – Obama Threatens Veto

The House of Representatives has passed Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013 sponsored by Congressman Fred Upton (R-MI) that would provide an insurance fix that President Obama proposed on Thursday.  The Bill passed with bipartisan support 261-157.

vetoThe Obama administration issued a veto threat on the legislation even though  the Bill would allow insurance companies to continue offering health plans that existed before the beginning of the new year.  Basically, fulfilling President Obama’s promise, “if you like your plan, you can keep you plan.”

So what is the reason behind Obama’s Veto threat?  Seems to us that Obama thinks he has the administrative authority to move deadlines within the Affordable Care Act.  Problem is, Most scholars disagree.

After years of Obama saying that Republicans would vote against anything if it were proposed by the President, seems that Obama has taken the same view here.  The legislation can’t be good if Republicans put it on the table.  Problem is, in this case, Congressional Democrats have voted along with the Republican controlled House.


So the Bill is intended to “sabotage” ObamaCare eh?  But Obama’s Insurance Fix is intended to do what, make Obamacare run smooth as glass?

If You pass a Bill, I will Veto your Bill Period!

Congress? I don’t need no Stinken Congress!
