On Thursday, Fox News’ Martha McCallum said that the Obama Administration has been messaging the Supreme Court to warn them that if their ruling is not in favor of ObamaCare, Medicare will face extraordinary disruption and “chaos.”
CNBC reports that “…in papers filed with the Supreme Court, administration lawyers have warned of “extraordinary disruption” if Medicare is forced to unwind countless transactions that are based on payment changes required by more than 20 separate sections of the Affordable Care Act…”
So why doesn’t the Obama administration prepare now for that eventuality? The Obama administration refuses to do so because they are certain the law will be upheld. RIGHT, that’s it.
The Obama administration wants the Medicare changes and expansion kept even if the individual mandate is ruled unconstitutional and they are using threats to get their way. They are repeating the claims of last year that a reversal of Medicare payment changes would impose “staggering administrative burdens”…and “could cause delays and errors.”
The Obama administration has rushed their Medicare and Obamacare changes through and the tentacles are everywhere because they want it to be irreversible.
Their plan is obviously to create mayhem if the SCOTUS does not abide by Obama’s will. They will then blame SCOTUS for every problem the government causes. They will disrupt Medicare payments to doctors and hospitals. They don’t care if Medicare is destroyed because they always planned to replace it with ObamaCare.
They will simply blame it on the “right wing” SCOTUS and the Republicans who want to kill seniors and handicapped people.
What is probably happening is that Obama knows the entire law is being shot down (via Kagan and Sotomayor) and he is trying to save the Medicare expansion with his usual bully tactics.
