    In an interview with The Hill, Rice explained that STOP resolution is aimed at reversing Obama's delay of the employer mandate, enactment of the DREAM Act, extension of "substandard" health insurance plans and ending work requirements for welfare.

    One, it was the REPUBLICANS screaming that employers didn't have time to do the required work to comply, so the President gave them more time.

    Two, the enactment of the DREAM ACT applies ONLY TO THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH over which the President has control.

    Three, again it was the REPUBLICANS crying because some dumbasses were canceled from policies that didn't come up to ACA standards, so the President said,"Ok keep your shitty policies for another year".

    And finally, the President gave the STATES the flexibility to work out their own work requirements. And you thought the Republicans were all about "letting the states be FREE to do what they want, you know, the whole " get the federal government off your backs" shtick.
