Jindal and Walker: Obamacare Unworkable

by Jerry Bader

The governors make their case in today's Wall Street Journal. The White House claims Republicans are trashing Obamacare to undermine the Obama presidency. They're trashing it because it truly is a train wreck, cliche alert not withstanding. Nobody has attacked Obamacare more than President Obama, by delaying a key element of the Affordable Care Act by one year. 

Jindal and Walker point out the arbitrary nature of the administration delaying one key element but sticking to the schedule with another. The president simply doesn't have the authority to do this. Republicans have been pushing this but they need to push a lot harder. The president is defying his own law because he doesn't want it in place for the 2014 mid-terms. They need to pursue this, daily.
