HHS head says he will uphold ObamaCare as law

Source: The Hill




BY NATHANIEL WEIXEL - 02/14/18 10:52 AM EST

The top federal health official on Wednesday said he will still uphold ObamaCare as long as it remains law.

In response to a question about a controversial plan in Idaho to allow insurers to sell plans that donít meet ObamaCare requirements, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told a congressional panel that he has a responsibility to enforce the law.

"I'm not aware that our opinions or views have been solicited," Azar said. "There are rules, and there's a rule of law that we need to enforce."

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter (R) recently signed an executive order allowing insurers to sell plans on the individual market that don't comply with ObamaCare's rules and protection.

2. ACA

They might not notice since he's still calling it ObamaCare instead of ACA.

Naturally, what he says and what he does are not necessarily the same thing.

3. But did HE actually call it that or was it The Hill

(a RW-leaning news source) that called it that in their headline and narrative?

It's usually the media that keeps perpetuating this.

5. He's part of the Trump administration.

He's lying. It's a requirement of the job.

Case closed.
