Republican lawmakers bashed the Obama administration at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday for opting not to enforce core parts of the Affordable Care Act, such as minimum requirements for individual healthcare plans.This would be the same ACA that Republicans aver to oppose stem to stern. The same ACA that House Republicans have voted nearly four dozen times to repeal in its entirety. The same ACA that they describe as a job-killer. The same ACA that they shut down the government to, well, suspend.
Rep. Trent Franks (Ariz.), the chairman of the Judiciary panel’s Constitution and Civil Justice subcommittee, said Congress should sue the administration to spur Obama to enforce the healthcare law as written.
Now they propose suing to enforce it in its entirety.
As former President Bill Clinton quipped last year, that takes some brass.
