Tom Marino, GOP Congressman, Floats Idea Of Filing Criminal Charges Against Obama

Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) revealed in a Thursday interview that he is exploring avenues by which members of Congress could try to pursue criminal charges against President Barack Obama.

Earlier this month, the Obama administration announced a delay in the implementation of an Affordable Care Act provision that will require businesses employing more than 50 people to provide them with health insurance. The delay, which puts off the requirement until 2015, drew much criticism from the GOP. The Treasury Department has since released a letter defending the decision as a means of providing "transition relief" for companies.

To say that Marino is critical of the decision may be an understatement. During an interview on local Scranton, Pa., station "94.3 The Talker," the congressman slammed both the president for allegedly taking illegal action and Attorney General Eric Holder for failing to do anything about it.

You think that the GOP would be all for them not implementing the ACA (obamacare). Wouldn't this just give the GOP time to defund the whole thing and or get it repealed completely?

Oh right, it's something they can go after Obama with, I see. Who cares whether it's good for the country or not, "Obama Must Fail"

I hope he tries bring criminal charges against Obama, I really do. I hope they try and impeach Obama. It will end in disaster for the GOP in the mid terms.

Obama isn't stupid by any stretch of the imagination; rather kicking the can down the road was a pretty cunning maneuver. Notice that the effective start date of Obamacare was never set in stone, rather there was merely a date that it couldn't be implemented prior to.

By moving the implementation date ahead a year he is hoping to dodge the heat that inevitably will be generated when this hot mess finally gets to chugging along. Also take note of the date he decreed and the date of mid-term elections...coincidence?

Even the Huffington Post has started to question the feasibility of the plan as a whole: -claims-costs_n_2956986.html

My guess is that after the 2014 elections, depending on the outcome, there will be another mighty passing of the buck and eventually by 2016 Obamacare and all of its glory will land on whomever occupies the White House. Obama will be laughing all the way to his next book signing, or speaking engagement and have plausible deniability by claiming that his healthcare overhaul was implemented incorrectly by the current administration.

Remember, Obama is out for Obama and will throw anyone under the bus to cover himself. If I were Hillary I would be terrified of this booby trap he seems to be setting.

Of course Obama is all about Obama, you don't get to be President if you aren't a narcissist.

It's a brilliant political strategy however. It's a trap for Conservatives to do what they do best, try and go against absolutely every single thing this president tries to do.

Now they are complaining that the ACA that they are supposedly totally against ISN'T being implemented? That's what they supposedly wanted.

He's just showing the public the true face of the GOP before the midterms.

I just think that they're just outraged over his unilateral decision to put off implementing his legacy. Sort of sets a scary precedent imo.

Only the business reporting portion has been delayed, not the whole thing. Funny, at least to me, how this communist/socialist who hates America and American business gets conservatives so pi$$ed off when he works with American business to make things easier for them.

Disclaimer: I live in Massachusetts and have been dealing with Romneycare for years. The sky hasn't fallen here in Massachusetts, my taxes are reasonable (at least less than they where in Pennsylvania), and I have yet to encounter a problem with getting a Doctor's appointment, in fact, there are more Doctors than I can shake a stick at.

I think Obama is setting the ACA up to fail in order to usher in single payer, which is fine by me. I think we need to unburden American business from their "requirement" of providing healthcare. While having a sweet benefits package may entice workers, our businesses would be able to compete with the rest of the world on a more even keel by offering more competitive salaries in place of medical benefits.

As for the President being a narcissist, if that were the case, he would have invaded multiple countries with boots on the ground - and at least one because he just felt like it, all the while giving the country unneeded tax brakes that make him look good in the short term, but have crippling long-term economic impact. Is he perfect? Show me one human that is.

If you want to make things easier for businesses, repeal ACA. And the IRS, while you are at it.
