Another Obama Executive Order This Time With Insurance companies

The illegal jailing of Kim Davis for following the law and
ignoring an unlawful order from Bush appointed pro-homosexual Judge David Bunning was used as cover for the Obama administration to illegally plan regulation, which is imposing law (something the Executive Branch has not been given authority in the Constitution to do), to pay for mutilation surgeries for mentally ill men and women who think they are the opposite gender.

The Daily Caller reports:

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced a planned new regulation Thursday that will require health insurers participating in Obamacare to cover more health procedures sought by the transgendered.

The new rule applies to every health insurer offering plans through or any of the state-run Obamacare insurance exchanges. It declares that insurers are prohibited from engaging in discrimination not only on the basis of sex, but also on the basis of gender identity.

In the past, several health insurance plans have categorically excluded health care related to transitioning between genders, often on the grounds that such procedures are often cosmetic, not medically necessary, and elective in nature. Now, such categorical bans will be disallowed, and insurers will have to cover many of the procedures.

HHS says the new rule won’t require insurers to cover all hormone treatments or sex reassignment surgeries, but it will almost certainly require them to cover a large number of them.

First, let’s put in place that the Executive Branch is acting unconstitutionally. Article 1, Section 1 of the US Constitution reads:

All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

How much power for legislation is left for the Executive Branch? How about for the federal courts? Absolutely none. Congress has not passed any legislation that requires paying for mutilation surgeries or hormone treatments for mentally ill people. Therefore, the Executive Branch has no authority to issue such a rule against health insurers. They are usurping it.

Why don’t the insurance companies band together and tell Obama and the feds to stuff it?
