U.N. Sends Message To Trump: Repealing Obamacare Illegal And We Won’t Allow It


Paul Mirengoff, Powerline Blog

Dana Milbank reports, with glee, that the United Nations “has contacted the Trump administration as part of an investigation into whether repealing [Obamacare] without an adequate substitute for the millions who would lose health coverage would be a violation of several international conventions that bind the United States.” The warning comes from the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner on Human Rights in Geneva.

The U.N. Human Rights Commission (now known as the Human Rights Council) purports to “uphold the highest standards in the promotion and protection of human rights,“ Its members include China, Cuba, Iraq, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela.

The “High Commissioner’s” office warning that Obamacare repeal/replacement might be illegal comes in a letter to the Trump administration. The Commissioner asked that the letter be shared with majority and minority leadership in both chambers of Congress. It also proposed that “the wider public should be alerted to the potential implications of the above-mentioned allegations.” According to Milbank, the White House has not shared the letter with Congress, much less “alerted the wider public.”

The public should be alerted, and alarmed, that the U.N. is attempting to dictate our domestic policy. The “High Commissioner’s” letter shows that signing broadly worded international agreements allows foreign countries, including some of the world’s worst dictatorship, to accuse us of violating the law. We should sign no more of them.

    OK UN, what will you do? Maybe we would better off if we pulled ALL of the UN funding and kicked the UN completely out of this country. OH and by the way, take those idiot celebrities who wanted to leave if Trump won, maybe they will fund the UN.

    Get the United States OUT of the United Nations. They are globalist controlled by billionaire socialists. We do not want the UN Agenda. Everything wrong with the US now is due to implementation of the UN agenda.
