When questioned on O-care's problems, and regarding the individual mandate, Carney replied:
Hmmm ... might it appear that some of what the Rs had asked for in the CR discussion actually made sense?Asked if the administration is looking for flexibility in applying the mandate, Carney said: "Whatever conclusions you draw about the way the law is written, I think you can draw. The law is clear that if you do not have access to affordable health insurance, then you will not be asked to pay a penalty because you haven't purchased affordable health insurance."
I disagree that Obama is unwilling to govern. He has used many executive orders to do so. He has, after all, declared the young illegals off limits to law enforcement, except for the most serious crimes. He has given many waivers to O-care, and delayed the mandate for businesses. He obviously directed Kerry to sign the UN small arms treaty (which, thankfully, Congress has pretty much unanimously agreed will be DOA in Congress). Can we forget how he took the bull by the horns and committed the US military to defeat Gaddafi in Libya.
