The House of Representatives is suing President Obama for making changes to ObamaCare without Congress' consent, but that didn't stop him from rewriting the law once again.

The New York Post reports that on the eve of Thanksgiving, the president added some new rules to the Affordable Care Act without much notice. Betsy McCaughey, a former Lieutenant Governor of New York who authored a book on the healthcare law, writes in the Post that "the president is redefining what health plans are 'adequate' for larger employers (100-plus workers) to offer under the Affordable Care Act," and that he's also "'asking' insurers to pay for new benefits — while warning that, if they don't, they may be forced to."
