Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette recently joined with other states to fight Obamacare, in the latest legal challenge to the embattled law.
Not only is Obamacare exacting increasing regulatory burdens on individuals and businesses, causing skyrocketing insurance premiums, and costing taxpayers money we don’t have, it is ground zero for this administration’s unconstitutional power grabs.
The current case is challenging attempts by the IRS to rewrite the law without going through Congress. Michiganians ought to thank Schuette for standing up to an agency increasingly willing to ignore the law for political ends.
Four years ago, Congress managed to pass the Affordable Care Act (known as Obamacare).
The legislation was hashed out by key Democratic legislators and involved numerous modifications to secure key votes.
