Biden administration asks Supreme Court to uphold Obamacare

While the nation focuses on the sham second impeachment of Donald Trump, Biden is wasting no time advancing his agenda.

The Daily Caller reported on Wednesday that Biden is requesting that the Supreme Court of the United States uphold a brand-new reversal of Donald Trump’s challenge of the Affordable Care Act — colloquially known as “Obamacare.”

President Trump worked hard to end the infamous “individual mandate,” a provision within the ACA which penalized Americans that didn’t carry health insurance, and the elimination of the penalties essentially rendered the entire legislation illegitimate.

The Hill reported:

Led by Texas, the GOP challengers argued that President Trump’s 2017 tax-cut law had effectively rendered the health care mandate provision of ObamaCare unconstitutional. Without the tax penalty, they argued, ObamaCare effectively lost its constitutional footing, requiring its invalidation by the court.

However, the Biden administration is now arguing that ending the individual mandate does not nullify the ACA, and notified the court that the administration is now arguing that the individual mandate can be “severed” from the larger legislation, leaving it intact.

“Following the change in Administration, the Department of Justice has reconsidered the government’s position in these cases,” Deputy Solicitor General Edwin Kneedler wrote to the high court, adding that “the United States no longer adheres to the [Trump administration’s] conclusions.”

It’s important to note that Biden’s DOJ is not withdrawing the Supreme Court case altogether, but is rather seeking to clarify its new position and petition that the court upholds the legislation regardless of the status of the individual mandate penalties.

Trump’s bid to strike completely overturn the entire package of healthcare legislation was initiated in June of 2020, but ultimately failed simply due to time constraints.

Biden was expected to prioritize reversing Trump’s progress on a number of fronts — healthcare being one of the most prominent — and Biden has not failed to follow through.

  1. Obamacare is unconstitutional. It has been replaced by a better alternative without a penalty. Why go back to Obamacare which people could not afford ?

    1. A.I., I could not agree more and the crap program obamacare was a comlete scam from the begining. The A**hole obama needs to just go away or be hung for treason.

    2. Chief Justice Roberts needs to own up to the changing of one word in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) thus making it legal. Problem is he had no authority to change that one word; only the Senate has this authority and to my knowledge they did not act on this.
      Those on the Supreme Court need to recognize that legally, the ACA should have never been recognized as legal and should be reversed.

      1. COPS SHOULD REFUSE TO PROTECT POLITICIANS!!!! PERIOD !!! THEY SHOULD CONSIDER QUITTING ALL ACROSS AMERICA!!! OR JUST WALK OFF!! THEY ARE NOT APPRECIATED,, NOR PROTECTED!!!

        1. Nowthat is a good idea! I wonder how they would continue their American hating mouths? If Police or military refused to protect them! I like it! Let them feel as vulnerable as we do?

    3. I agree. We do NOT want ObamaCare. Why not let us decide what we want. We pay your salary and you do nothing for us.

    4. You don’t get it, do you? Democrats are determined to get rid of everything Trump did, even the things that made every American citizen”s life better. They don’t care about us at all. The only people democrats are going to help are illegal aliens, China, and Soros and his globalist friends.

        1. Me too . It is like they will destroy the country having a tempo tantrum. Yo hell with whom it hurts. That mumbling Baffin is babbling about the coup in Burma?? What about his coup?????
          NOT MY PRESIDENT

      1. ACTUALLY,,, THERE REALLY IS ,,,NO MORE,,,,DEMOCRAT PARTY OR DNC!!!!! It is now the COMMUNIST PARTY U.S.A. !!!! BUT BEFORE LONG,,,, there will be NO MORE U.S.A. !!! JUST LOOK AROUND !!!

    5. Obama care was horrible! They taxed you for not being able to afford it! My grandson had a child and was a single dad and had to pay a fine at tax time because he couldn’t afford to pay for Obama Care!

      1. How about when you’re fortunate to have had a job but had to use Obamacare, then when it comes time to file taxes…YOU’VE MADE TOO MUCH INCOME and you HAVE TO PAY BACK THE ENTITE YEAR’S WORTH OF OBAMACARE PREMIUMS!!!🤬

  2. Does anyone else read these Biden quotes and have trouble even imaging him being able to put five words together correctly? For the life of me I doubt that he even knows what he is signing on those executive orders, someone just puts them in front of him and Bobble head signs it.

  3. Obama Care is fake and not no good. It is very unconstitutional and should be done away with. Biden is a fool to think that people want Obama care. They do not really want it.

  4. Interesting invalid argument by the Biden administration–Obamacare now includes a tax that isn’t mandatory, but is still a tax (apparently a voluntary one). How many voluntary taxes are there? If it isn’t mandatory, it isn’t a tax. This is just a meaningless subterfuge just like the excuse of a tax (that was actually a penalty) that Chief Justice Roberts invented in order to declare Obamacare constitutional. Will be interesting to see how that ploy flies with the newer justices.

  5. Wonder if this comment will get on here? So Biden is better than Trump according to CNN, MSNBC, the people that voted for him, most of Hollywood, China and others. Does that mean it’s true? Well, no. Just because majority says so, does not make it true. For example; Biden is in bed with China a communist nation that WHO protects to this day. Dr. Fauci and others were aware of virus dangers in 2017. He also was told by Obama to dismember this. He did not listen. Biden and his family are tied to China. Biden took away jobs from Alaska Pipeline. Green deal is a lie. It helps China. Vaccines to elites before vulnerable. Biden says nothing about crime all over the country. Even the democrats encouraged it. The news media has lied about Russia before, after, and even now. President Trump was not involved. Biden supports BLM, Antifa and even Harris bailed people from those groups out of jail. The January 6 riots had Trump Supporters, but the violence was planned before according to sources. Yet here we are still talking about it. Hollywood is rich and they could careless about the average citizen. Big houses, cars, etc. More lockdowns. We have been on lockdowns for a year and yet virus is going up. So, we should hide. Depression and insanity. So, there is more. But, just looking at this, everything Biden and these others have done destroyed society. Trump stood up to lies, wear mask without overstepping, hold China accountable, got virus and pushed on after getting virus approved in record time, support Police and First Responders, put America First. Biden last. So just with these things, Trump is better, despite what these majorities say. Ha!

    1. Oh, RUSSIA LOVES HIM TOO!! SO DOES IRAN,, CUBA, NORTH KOREA,, VENEZUELA,,, ETC, ETC!!! HIM AND HIS FAMILY AND D.C.,,, MAKES BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OFF OF THEM !!!

  6. I just love how people love to sit back, down a beer while pissing and moaning over the crap going on today!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

  7. Biden is going to start w3 he is threating Putin to rain bombs on them Biden is a idiot. He needs to be impeached instead of Trump down with Biden and i Putin and the Russian people are not a threat to us I’m with Russia on this one. Biden needs to mined his own business

    1. Biden isn’t going to do SQUAT!! HE IS AFRAID OF HIS OWN SHADOW!!! SO IS D.C.!!! China has already threatened him and America!! And he said NOTHING!!! They are (China) going TAKE OVER TAIWAN VERY SOON !! And America will do ,,,,NOTHING !!!

  8. It is sad that the Dems want to erase anything Trump did, even tho it was best for the American people. Their hatred of Trump is so hypocritical. They keep accusing him of exactly what they themselves are doing. Their playbook says DEFLECT DEFLECT DEFLECT. That way hopefully no one will notice the dirt they are doing.
    Can’t wait to get rid of them and the media and the liberals. And we will.

    1. Katydid, if you think the dems will be voted out of office, think again. If you have any doubts, look at this last joke of an “election”. The ONLY WAY we can beat them is to use the same means they used in the last election & then some. They have the media, judges in very high places ,etc so we have to fight fire with fire. We have to agree to stick together come hell or high water. Ket nothing stop up. Beat them at their own game!!!

  9. Can someone tell me what good it will do to call your reprocenitor will do . Time magazine has run an article stating how the democrats stole the election and the democrats confirmed it.

  10. This sounds like Biden sucking up to Obama and Pelosi. Both of which have no problem going against the Constitution. The dang thing doesn’t work unless you are trying to cheat the people out of money and give crumbs to the little people that you never intend to have to deal with later when you screw up.

  11. Anything with obama’s name attached to is pure unamerican. This person had the worst 8 years in office and was never for the people. His foot print is on the Biden office with all his comrades and knowing bama was a failure what is to come for the future of America with the bama influence and a mentally unable president?

  12. If you can’t afford ins how can you afford the penalty? But Obama didn’t care and Biden doesn’t care. Just pay it, don’t care how, so we can pay the free ins for Democrat voters and illegals…..

  13. I get paid £98 consistently from online positions… I never suspected I’d have the option to do it however my companion Pamela Peavey is acquiring £12k/month to month by doing this work and she indicated me Find out work at home..

  14. Im going to do this in sections, so that I can figure out which part keeps getting me censored.
    First, If obuma care was so great and wonderful, Why do none of the people who are forcing it down our throats use it?

  15. Who, with even the slightest modicum of humility and ethics, would force us not to go to work, yet figure out how to pay the bills, feed our families, maintain our homes, and still pay our taxes?
    Those monsters have not missed a paycheck through this entire plandemic, and if memory serves, didnt they just give themselves another pay raise?

  16. These animals couldnt give less of a crap about us. obviously.
    Now, when we are at the lowest point in about 100 years, they want to add this ridiculous obumacare tax to our load as well? Who does that serve? not us. Maybe it is for the illegal aliens that they plan to import by the millions.

  17. Biden will NEVER be my President. He and heels to the headboard need to be impeached, put into stocks and placed in the town square so that children can throw rotten vegetables at them.
    It would definitely be a change from what normally happens when they are in the same vicinity as children.

  18. To the head censor on this comments section:
    Just remember that it is no fun when the rabbit has the gun.
