Chicken-Fried News: I hate this law; enforce it

Republicans claimed President Barack Obama’s healthcare law created a burden on business owners. Obama responded by delaying mandates on business owners, essentially doing what Republicans in Washington D.C. had been clamoring for.

Those same Republicans then sued him for not following the laws of Obamacare.
Obama just can’t win.

Rep. James Lankford, R-Oklahoma, voted with the majority of Republicans in favor of filing the lawsuit last month.

“I am humbled today to stand up for the millions of Americans who are fed up with the President’s unwillingness to faithfully execute the law,” Lankford said after the vote.

Lankford could have also said, “Americans are fed up with Obamacare, but I will sue the president for not upholding it.”
