What Are the Odds?

At a House Rules Committee hearing held to debate its merits, experts had opposing views. “When a president unilaterally waives, delays or suspends a law such as the ACA, he squelches any opportunity to have a robust, political debate about the workability of the law, and thereby undermines democracy itself,” said Elizabeth Price Foley, a professor of law at Florida International University College of Law. But according to Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Massachusetts), House GOP leaders are pushing the measure to appease Republican "cuckoo clocks" who would rather impeach the president.
