A physicians organization has filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration’s decision to delay Obamacare employer mandate by one year.

A physicians organization has filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration’s decision to delay Obamacare employer mandate by one year.

The AAPS lawsuit, which was filed today in the Eastern District of Wisconsin, asks the Court to enjoin the Obama Administration from imposing its “individual mandate” while delaying the “employer mandate.” The law that was passed by Congress in 2010 requires that the employer mandate go into effect at the same time as the individual mandate: Jan 1, 2014.

“The U.S. Constitution requires a strict separation of powers between the three branches of government, such that the executive branch cannot change laws passed by Congress,” AAPS’s lawsuit explains. By imposing the individual mandate in 2014 without the protection of the employer mandate, the Obama Administration has changed the legislation passed by Congress.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

    So what?

    Why would this administration constrain itself with the intent of the Constitution and passed law? If Congress and or the Senate will not confront this administration, specifically this president, for a myriad of reasons, what reason would compel the administration and this president to adhere to the Constitution and passed law?

    The opposing party is afraid to confront and stand in the way of this Marxist juggernaut. There are moments in life when you just have to say ENOUGH! And do what must be done. Its kind of like putting off going to the dentist. That time has arrived.

    The deal was made and now is in danger of the administration being made to alter it.

    “Allowing Americans more time to enroll for health coverage under Obamacare may raise premiums and cut into profits, insurers are telling members of Congress in a bid to stop such a move. ”

    Your Constitution and by extension your GOD given, not you governmentally given, rights have been dealt away by some temporary ideolouge of a politicians. Think about that for a bit.

    This Deal’s Getting Worse All The Time

  • mpthompson

    I was just a very young kid in the Watergate era, but it’s my understanding that things really started going badly for Nixon when he lost the support of those in his own party. I honestly cannot forsee any circumstances under which the Democrats in the House and Senate or the media would stop supporting Obama in a similar manner. Obama could be rounding up Tea Party supporters into trains and shipping them off to reducation camps and the usual suspects would still be defending his policies saying it’s an unfortunate, but necessary “transition”.

    The Cloward–Piven strategy!! Single payer coming our way!!

  • “Your Constitution and by extension your GOD given, not you governmentally given, rights have been dealt away by some temporary ideolouge of a politicians. ”

    If your fundamental rights are, in fact, God – given, (I think they are) then you need only stand up to reclaim them. Are you willing to risk your ‘Life, Liberty, and Sacred Honor’, or is cable TV too much of a draw?

  • Cotour

    Are you willing?

    I personally do not have cable TV, nor a cell phone, although I do love the internet. I have just gone to see the movie GRAVITY in 3D, which I have to tell you was a pretty good movie, a little far fetched but a good movie all the same. I had not been to the movies in 7 years, I find modern movies a component in the bread and circus that is offered by Hollywood to the people as distraction from what they need to be focusing on.

    I saw the movie in 3D in an IMAX theater, if that is any indication of where technology is going than I can see where people would be drawn to spend most of their waking hours plugged into it. In 10 or 20 years you will be able to select it being on or off and it will just appear in your mind and you can have what ever experience you would like. Think about the future implications related to what we are talking about. What will Americans choose then? Where are we going?

  • Yes. I have stated for a long time that I won’t be checking the ‘have health insurance’ box on my FY2012 tax form. In light of the difficulties faced by the luminaries of American society, it isn’t much, but it is something.
