Mark Levin Show Guest: Obamacare Today Is Not The Same Law Passed Or Upheld By Supreme Court

I can't find an embeddable clip to post, but go to RightScoop to hear the audio from Mark Levin's show last night when he spoke to Betsy McCaughey, who has researched and written many books on what Obamacare will mean for Americans.

Here's part of the transcript.
MCCAUGHEY: I have the Obama health law right here in front of me and I think about how different what the president’s health reform today is from that law. I hear the Democrats say all the time ‘well it was passed by Congress, it was signed by the president and it was vetted by the Supreme Court.’ But what the president is imposing on us today is not the Affordable Care Act.
LEVIN: Stop! Stop! That is a very important point. Wait a minute, Congress passed, the president signed, the Supreme Court upheld…and your point is since then Obama has changed the law and nobody and nothing has passed on that. Brilliant!
MCCAUGHEY: Oh yes exactly. He has stripped the employer mandate, income verification, caps on out of pocket expenses, over half the statutory deadlines in the law. So now he’s had this very distorted little piece of the Affordable Care Act and he’s tacked new things onto it, 1472 waivers. And how about this new subsidy for members of Congress that he weaseled through without congressional approval. All of this means that this reform doesn’t have the status of law.
Yet all the Democreeps, their supporters like SSEIU, Klan Parenthood, and even RINOs like John McLame have tried to argue this is already law and we can't change it.  Even though Obama has usurped the Constitution to make changes and give waivers to Congress and his political allies.

And the "it's the law" argument is a weak one to use against changing or getting rid of it.  Slavery, segregation, and prohibition were also once laws--bad ones--and then they were gotten rid of.
