"Trust Me. I'm From The Government." (SHUDDER)

Written by 

There are not many other words more frightening than "trust me.  I'm from the government."  

But that's exactly what a federal appeals court has heard, and that's what they're buying.  Hook, line, and monkeyballs.

Here's the skinny of a recent ruling on Obamacare's sucktasticness (emphasis mine, of course):

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius cannot enforce the Obamacare contraception mandate as it is written, but must follow through on a promise to rewrite the rule to accommodate religious liberty, a federal appeals court ordered.

The Obama administration “represented to the court that it would never enforce [the mandate] in its current form against the appellants or those similarly situated as regards contraceptive services,” the three judges hearing the case wrote in their order.  The Obama team made that promise during oral arguments against Wheaton College and The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which sued over the contraception mandate but lost at the lower court level.

“There will, the government said, be a different rule for entities like the appellants .  .  . We take the government at its word and will hold it to it,” the judges wrote.  They ruled that the Obama administration must rewrite the regulation by August 2013 and provide updates to the court every 60 days. If the government fails to do so, the lawsuits may proceed.

Am I the only one who's currently laughing her assular area off at that one sentence alone?

That is comic GOLD right there, people.
