Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden is one of eleven attorneys general from around the nation pressing the Secretary of HHS, Kathleen Sebelius, to stop changing ObamaCare through Executive Fiat. A letter signed by the group was sent last week protesting the numerous changes which have been ordered by the federal regime without Congressional approval.
The letter specifically called-out the regime around Obama’s decision to allow policies which are prohibited by the federal statute to be re-issued. The executive branch cannot simply change duly-enacted laws by itself.
A key portion of the letter reads:
“We support allowing citizens to keep their health insurance coverage, but the only way to fix this problem-ridden law is to enact changes lawfully: through Congressional action. The illegal actions by this administration must stop.”
Submission of the letter is seen as a precursor to potential legal action.
The attorneys general also urged the Secretary to properly deal with widespread concerns over the security of private information being collected by government websites as part of the ObamaCare application process.
