Obama gave a lot of leeway to states that went full legal by giving them avenues to spend their tax revenues. He hasn't gone after those states which is why the law suite was enacted. The states that only have medical marijuana are in a grey area and some producers have sketchy practices and no states sanction. Obama will not use his powers to stop all out fed raids because of reactions like this from Congress but at least with full state legality and regulation, he can hide behind states rights and not risk flagrant lawsuits that seem to not be concerned about states rights.
The DEA is doing what they must do under the law enacted by congress, and a full presidential waver is dangerous ground without congressional support or a full state vote for legality, rather then those halfhearted votes to only allow it for Medical purposes which can mean anything and still involves the fed. We also know that many justice agencies act unilaterally. How about we stop throwing stones at a dude who doesn't want to go beyond the scope of his job which he was hired to do. He's playing with fire enough letting the states breath with full legality.
obamacare made my insurance go down about 45 bucks a month next year. First time in 10 yrs rates have gone down at my job, my HR person said.
maybe im wrong, but werent those plans canceled cuz they were so awful and pointlessly expensive? didnt the insurance companies have 3 years to make their plans up to par? so wouldnt it be the fault of the insurance companies that those people are losing insurance?
Some of them were, there were some substandard plans as well as plans that should have long been discontinued.
It is the insurance companies, they caught one of them jacking up prices under the guise to out price their competitors. They did this because they figured the first people to sign up would be the sick and higher prices would deter these sick people from signing up with them. They basically were trying to push sick people off on the competition.
That's just one of the schemes they had time to concoct. There are quite a few others.
People getting too wrapped up in politics. The damn law isn't even in full effect and won't be for at least another month. Effectiveness of the law won't be able to be quantified until at least 2016-2017 after the entire law has been in effect more than a year.
