February 11th, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today urged Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, as well as the 26 co-plaintiff states, to take immediate action against the implementation of new regulatory processes forbidden by Judge Roger Vinson’s ruling:
“Despite the ruling of a federal court striking down the bill in its entirety, the Obama Administration has continued with the regulatory implementation of the health care takeover. Instead of the rule of law, we now have the rule of Obama.
“Today, published in the Federal Register, the Obama Administration has introduced a new regulation affecting student health plans. The problem is that the executive branch has no power to implement regulations based on voided legislation. These actions are barred by Judge Vinson’s ruling. The Obama Administration has not even taken the basic step asking the courts for a stay of that decision.
“This lawlessness must not stand. Without a stay or being overturned, the Administration must follow Judge Vinson’s decision.
“It is now evident that the Department of Health and Human Service is taking further steps to execute the law expressly forbidden by Judge Vinson’s ruling. Obama has called the states’ bluff by continuing with implementation. If the states are serious in their opposition to ObamaCare, they must take immediate action.”
