…but only because it’s politically expedient for the Democrats, of course.
First, allow me to provide a quick “refresher” sheet of the various and sundry changes which the president has already unilaterally enacted regarding Obamacare (*click* the image for full-size view):
And now, for the latest “adjustment” of His Lordship’s Glorious-yet-Ever-Changing Healthcare Plan for the Great Unwashed:

It is now painfully clear that all criticism or questioning of our President’s signature legislation is now officially prohibido.
Consider this an UPDATE to last week’s “Attempting to Silence #Obamacare’s Victims“:
So let’s review, shall we?

(via Americans for Prosperity) – “…Today Rep. Gary Peters set his Washington DC legal attack dogs out to intimidate and silence Julie Boonstra, a Michigan mother battling leukemia who had the courage to speak up after the insurance plan she liked was cancelled due to the Affordable Care Act.
I don’t know what ticks me off more: folks who reflexively impugn people of faith, or folks who deliberately misunderstand/misquote/misrepresent what people have said.
It’s probably a tie.
Which brings me to a recent conversation between MSNBC’s Al Sharpton and political analyst Dr. Victoria DeFrancesco Soto:

When the State doesn’t wish you to express your dissent, they simply make dissent illegal.
See? Problem solved.
Of course, such a tyrannical move is usually only seen in oppressive, fascistic regimes. To which I say: “Welcome to Obama’s America, ladies and gentlemen”.

We’ve all experienced it: the shrieking alarm that for whatever reason won’t/can’t be silenced. When faced with a noise (or a smell, or any other negative stimulus) which continues unabated, eventually over time it can become so commonplace, so constant, that we no longer pay it any notice.
Practically speaking, it ceases to exist.
The psychological term for this is “desensitization“. Unfortunately, it perfectly describes the Obama era and the White House’s repeated, extra-Constitutional delays of the politically problematic aspects of Obamacare. They’ve now happened so many times that they are barely even news.
Just like the shrieking alarm that we no longer hear, we filter them out. They no longer exist.
The most recent example occurred Monday:

“…and if your employer does offer health care, we’re gonna work with your employer to lower premiums by up to $2,500 per family per year…”
-(Barack Obama, repeated approximately 1.6 billion times)
This was NOT some minor aspect of the whole health care debate. It was a central, mantra-like selling point specifically designed to placate the country into believing the Affordable Care Act would be a huge cost benefit to one-and-all:
