'Obamacare' fixes were 'unlawful,' Scott Pruitt tells panel

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt was on TheBlaze on Friday talking about the letter that he and 10 other state attorney generals sent to Kathleen Sebelius outlining their issues with the changes that the administration has made to the Affordable Care Act after the law passed.

Pruitt’s main argument is that President Obama and federal agencies have gone too far in making rules to “fix” the glitches that have presented themselves as the Affordable Care Act has been implemented. Scott Pruitt told the panel:

“We believe, first and foremost, that the initial rule adopted by HHS was unlawful, but these fixes that the president is talking, of late, are also unlawful because it didn’t go through the rule making process. He’s required, the agencies are required to go through rule making in introducing a rule, and they didn’t do that. This president is acting, I think, in a way, that does demonstrate he’s taking the law into his own hands.”
