How Dare The President Call The Law The Law?
You know a speech will be a peach when a member of Congress puts a title like “Shame On You” in the Congressional Record. That’s what U.S. Representative Louis Gohmert did yesterday, when he stood up and gave a little rant, opening up with the complaint, “Mr. Speaker, today, once again, the President has
unilaterally, almost like a monarch, said ObamaCare is the law.”
The thing is, ObamaCare is the law. It’s called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and it’s an official part of federal law. It has been for years. Congress, as well as the President, made it so. Louis Gohmert was there when it happened.
So, when Barack Obama says that ObamaCare is law, he isn’t acting “like a monarch”. He’s just stating a simple fact.
What’s next? Will Louis Gohmert get angry at the National Weather Service for reporting that average annual temperatures are still on the increase? Come to think of it, yes, I imagine that he would.
