Ron Johnson’s Obamacare Objection a Generalized Grievance?

The Obama administration finally responded last week to Ron Johnson’s lawsuit – and do you know what they called his objection to Obamacare?  A “generalized grievance.”

Instead of addressing the merits of the case, the administration claims Ron has not sustained a “concrete, personal injury” from the lawless implementation of Obamacare.

We’ll let the courts decide that — but we think the millions of Americans who have been harmed by Obamacare can give some pretty good examples of just how personal and concrete the injuries sustained by this law are.

  • Paying more for out of pocket premiums?  Yep, that’s a personal and concrete injury.
  • Getting kicked off of your health insurance plan?  We’d say that’s a pretty specific grievance.
  • Not being allowed to keep your doctor?  It doesn’t get much more personal than that.

And let’s not forget that all of these very personal and concrete injuries are what President Obama’s head cheerleader in the Senate – Harry Reid – classified as “lies.”

The Obama administration’s defense fits their ongoing narrative on Obamacare.  The last thing they want to admit in court – or anywhere else – is that people are being harmed by this overreaching law.
