191. You are willfully misconstruing this.
Obama directs HHS to set up proposed rules, until they are put into place, Obama's directives have no force of law behind them other than with the director of HHS.

Once HHS proposed rules are put into place, a medical facility would ignore them at their peril. The new rule will have the force of law behind it, with penalties and sanctions stipulated.

Proposed rules do not. They aren't 'rules' until adopted by the agency.

This is how federal rule-making gets done.

Same in Transportation.

Same in Commerce....
