Yesterday's Republican Anarchist Is Today's Reasonable Democrat?

The lawlessness of the Obama administration continues unabated.  Ignoring the law as it's written and unilaterally changing it as it suits them, the administration now is doing by fiat what Republican lawmakers suggested doing legally a few years ago:
In a move that was pre-emptively attacked by House Republican leaders, the administration said plans that were grandfathered for one year after millions received cancellation notices in the individual market will now be able to continue, but will not be able to be renewed after Oct. 1, 2016. The announcement means an estimated 500,000 people in those plans won’t get cancellation notices right before the midterm elections, but does set up a situation where some could get cut off right before the next presidential election.

“This reeks of politics,” said Brendan Buck, a spokesman for Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio. “Instead of working with Congress to prevent Americans from losing the plans they like and can afford, the president is unilaterally re-writing laws around the election calendar. You have to wonder if he’s more interested in keeping his promise or keeping seats in the Senate.”
If there were anything good about this law, they wouldn't keep changing and delaying it. That alone should be the biggest of red flags to even the most slavish Obama defenders that the law is bad and shouldn't have been passed in the first place.

The next Republican president should just refuse to enforce or implement Obamacare.  The precedent has been set.

When Republicans suggested amending the law to delay implementation they were attacked as "anarchists", and worse.  Now it's just being done because it's politically convenient for a lawless, feckless, incompetent president and Democratic party.  Or is it?
But senior administration officials denied a political motive and said....
I love you, and the check's in the mail.

Doesn't help those who's policies are already cancelled. They aren't coming back.
