Of course he did. If not for the ACA, a bill passed only because of Obama's deceit and lies, the millions who lost their insurance would still be covered.

We are not talking about "lawyers" in congress. We are talking about "constitutional lawyers". There is a huge difference. I have no idea how many are "constitutional" lawyers but something tells me very few. Perhaps you can figure it out yourself from the attached link.
Obama:“But there’s not an action that I take that you don’t have some folks in Congress who say that I’m usurping my authority. Some of those folks think I usurp my authority by having the gall to win the presidency. And I don’t think that’s a secret.”

How many branches of government are there?
What are they?
What are their function according to the constitution?

First answer is 3.

Second answer is Legislative, Judicial, Executive and they each have a individual constitutional function which they must complete or be in breach of their individual oaths of office according to the constitution.

Third answer, is the Legislative Branch writes bills and must passed them through the House of Representatives and the Senate then the bill is either signed into law by the president or the bill is vetoed. The Judicial Branch prosecutes/enforce the laws that have been violated. Executive Branch enforces and crafts the policy, both foreign and domestic that follows our constitution to improve America and Americans ability to prosper and grow to their full potential as citizens. The Executive's most honored responsibility is to do NO HARM to the American People.

ACA has turned upside down the healthcare industry in our country. So far, over 5 million have lost their healthcare insurance some are these millions are in critical care facilities fighting for their lives. How many have gain healthcare under ACA? 106,000 get insurance and over 5 million lose their healthcare.

This is a travesty, debacle and is unlawful. You can't take away from one group that paid for healthcare to give it to another group there is no ethics, morals or constitutionality to that act.

Absolutely true. And the same Obamatrons defend him, day after day.

New York City just elected Obama-lite in the form of Bill DeBlasio using class war fare and promises of redistribution. Like Obama he has no accomplishments or real world experience. He trotted out his kids afro as a prop. Another empty suit. I predict that in five years (actually less) from now we'll be remembering the good old days when Guiliani cleaned up the city, we had little crime and lots of tourists.

NYC was great because of the last two mayors who were not Dems. It will soon be like Detroit and Chicago and as awful as when David Dinkins was in Gracie mansion.

Hypocrite. You seem to have no problem jacking up everyone else's rates and having their insurance cancelled.
You have no clue what common sense is.
People who have auto insurance claims also pay higher premiums. They don't all "take the bus" you idiot!
Typical of you. You missed the point. People who can't afford to pay higher premiums go without (including drivers). They are left with no choice. Obamacare gives the uninsured a choice. I don't really care about the under insured. If they had taken more responsibility for their health needs, they wouldn't have a problem.

No, the Rollout of Healthcare.gov is Nothing Like Hurricane Katrina

There's no question that Healthcare.gov has been a fiasco—a blunder of a website that has embarrassed the administration and tarnished Obama's brand. At the same time, it's important not to overstate the scope of the damage. Right now, the problem with the website is that it can't accommodate everyone who wants to buy health insurance. This is a serious issue, but not the worst mistake ever made by a president.

By contrast, George W. Bush's response to Katrina comes close. Hurricane Katrina was one of the deadliest storms to ever hit the United States. It killed more than 1,800 people, destroyed tens of thousands of homes, caused billions in property damage, and nearly sank a major American city. And the Bush administration's response was criminally negligent, a basic failure of duty that should haunt everyone involved.

Despite several days of memos and warnings to administration officials—that this would be a major storm, that the levees had been breached, that flooding had began—it took two days for President Bush—who was on vacation, spawning a series of photo-ops that would look awful in retrospect—to begin to organize the federal response. The Federal Emergency Management Agency had little in the way of direction, and critical resources in the area went unused. As late as September 1st, three days after Katrina made landfall, there were no coordinated efforts in the area. "This is a national emergency. This is a national disgrace," said Terry Ebbert, then director of emergency operations for New Orleans, "FEMA has been here three days, yet there is no command and control. We can send massive amounts of aid to tsunami victims, but we can’t bail out the city of New Orleans."

When confronted with this avalanche of incompetence, administration officials shifted the blame, more attuned to their political fortunes than to the thousands who languished in overcrowded shelters without adequate food, water, or sanitation, forced to deal with disease and violence. It was more than an embarrassment, it was one of the worst domestic disasters ever seen in a presidency. Indeed, the only reason it doesn't define Bush's tenure is that it's overshadowed by the war in Iraq, which stands as one of the worst foreign policy disasters in U.S. history.

Healthcare.gov is not in the same ballpark, it's not in the same league—it's not even in the same sport. Failing to build a website that can reliably provide health care coverage to consumers—a noble goal hindered by flawed implementation—is categorically different than a non-response to a natural disaster that claimed thousands of lives.
