Leave aside the unanswered question – or for that matter strangely unasked to a great extent – how the president can simply make declarations that change a Congressional law as if by imperial fiat, such as his exemption of Congress and its staff from ObamaCare, or his declaration that the employer mandate will be postponed for a year (if you think this is bad, wait until that disaster looms on the horizon).

Update: The House passed a bill today (Friday, 15 November) to let insurance companies sell the cancelled policies that resulted from ObamaCare, one day after Obama announced a unilateral "fix" to the problem.
It would seem that Obama's hasty press conference yesterday gave cover for the Democrats who were faced with putting a vote for or against the unfolding ObamaCare debacle. Without the president's declared "fix", possibly a hundred or so Democrats would have gone over to support the Republican bill.
We're going to begin with the continuing battle now over ObamaCare. The House will vote today on a Republican-backed bill that can dramatically undermine the President's health care law. For his part, the President is vowing to help millions of Americans who had their policies cancelled by allowing insurance companies to offer their old policies for one more year. But now it is up to the states to implement that change and one state – Washington – is already saying the President's fix is unworkable.
