    Reidiculous does not want to acknowledge all the exceptions, favoritism, and subsidies in Obamacare.

    Issue 225) Broke his promise to have real time verifiability of Obamacare subsidies (Obama tacitly admitted that he promise of real-time verification of a consumer’s eligibility to buy subsidized coverage at an ObamaCare exchange wasn’t exactly panning out. Under ObamaCare, only those who don’t have access to “affordable” insurance at work can buy coverage in an exchange, and only those below certain income levels are eligible for tax subsidies. Rather than a high-tech instant check, Obama told states they could simply take the applicants’ word for it when it comes to their employer-provided coverage, as well as their “projected annual household income,” without the need for “further verification.”)

    Issue 236) Illegally avoided enforcing the required income verification of people who receive subsidies for Obamacare exchanges (Even though Obamacare requires the government to verify the income of people who receive subsidies for Obamacare exchanges, Obama would not be verifying their incomes.)

    The White House postponed introduction of the employer mandate until at least 2015, will award countless millions in premium subsidies according to the “honor system,” and has now delayed implementing caps on out-of-pocket insurance costs. This has “forced” Obama to illegally rewrite–and sometimes just conveniently ignore–other important provisions of Obamacare that the left long ago knew would not be ready to go when promised. Of course, the Obama Regime is not accustomed to offering apologies for its failures. So Sebelius did what liberal Democrats so often do when the progress of a favored agenda is threatened. She blamed Republicans.
