11 AGs Blast Obama Administration for ‘Flatly Illegal’ Obamacare Changes

Eleven Republican attorney generals sent a harsh letter to Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius saying the Obama administration “must stop” sidestepping Congress to make changes to the health-care law.

“We support allowing citizens to keep their health insurance coverage, but the only way to fix this problem-ridden law is to enact changes lawfully: through Congressional action,” West Virginia’s Patrick Morrisey wrote in the letter, according to the Hill. Along with Morrisey, attorney generals from Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, and Virginia called the numerous changes “flatly illegal.”

In the past year, the Obama administration has unilaterally made changes to the health-care law, such as delaying the employer mandate, allowing for a hardship exemption for those who can’t afford a plan on Obamacare exchanges, allowing insurance companies to renew plans that had previously been canceled, and pushing back other deadlines.
