UN warned Trump that ObamaCare repeal could violate international law

United Nations

From Fox News: The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report.

Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an “urgent appeal” on Feb 2.

The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.”

The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said the U.N. expressed “serious concern” about the prospective loss of health coverage for 30 million people, that in turn could violate “the right to social security of the people in the United States.”

Congressional Republicans failed in March to pass an ObamaCare replacement bill. A new proposal is emerging on Capitol Hill, but it’s unclear when it might be considered and how sweeping it may be.

A spokesman for the U.N.’s human rights office in Geneva confirmed the authenticity of the letter, which was sent by Dainius Puras, a Lithuanian doctor who serves the U.N. as “Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health.”

Xabier Celaya, a spokesman for the U.N., said Puras cannot comment on his ObamaCare letter until it becomes public in June.

Though the report calls out the Trump administration, there’s very little the U.N. can actually do. 

According to the report, the letter sent to the Trump administration also was supposed to be shared with the majority and minority leaders in both houses of Congress — but that did not happen.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s office and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer’s office said they never received the letter, as did officials in House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office. The letter from Puras did make its way to the Department of Health and Human Services, where an unnamed employee supposedly leaked it.

  3. The UN is such a joke. Their policies on human rights has been an abysmal failure and has made a mockery of everything that is based on truth and freedom of the individual. What do you expect when most of those in power don’t even believe in human rights? What a farce. Time to shut it down, send everyone home and turn the building into a multi-purpose facility (condos, hotel rooms, retail outlets, restaurants, recreation venues, conference rooms, etc.). The homes of foreign UN officials should be sold on the open market with the proceeds going to fund the “Wall”.

    • greenworxx . . . those are the most common sense ideas I have seen in quite some time!!! There is little doubt that we need to free ourselves from the UN. I’m tired of being called on to feed the piggy bank that funds these goons. Send them home and let them meddle in the affairs of the countries they come from, and get the Hell off our backs!

    • Nix on the “condos, hotel rooms, retail outlets, restaurants, recreation venues, conference rooms, etc.” Turn it into a condo for homeless veterans of THIS country’s military.

    • It’s the means of achieving a global satanic communist takeover:
      Interesting history of the UN’s global warming scam;
      “The earth is facing an environmental Armageddon for which the only answer is … a global government.
      For many people around the world (not just the United Nations), the global warming issue and the potential global regulation of emissions, provides a means of achieving their desired goal: global governance. This is the reason that the “debate is over”. In science, the debate is not over. In politics… well… “A comment about the scientific community. It is easier sometimes to get consensus in the political community, rather than in the scientific community.” quote by Maurice Strong, July 2009 (Strong was a key developer of the global warming scare – see below, and see the History of the Global Warming Scare).
      “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” – H.L. Mencken”

  11. If we go against the UN’s warning,will they gather the 3rd world Countries and declare War against us? Cases like THIS are why the UN needs to be kicked off American soil,de-funded and removed from ALL American Law. The UN’s influence is POISON to the American way of life.

    • truckjunkie . . . . . Your reasoning is superb! The UN lives to try to subjugate the United States of America, and it’s people. There are NO if’s, and’s or but’s about that fact. Yes, our school children are taught that the UN is there to “save our world.” That is just plain BS . . .it may have started out as a good idea, but it has morphed into an organization whose sole aim is to decimate the United States. This is being done by sucking all of the treasure of our nation that it can, trying to usurp and destroy our Constitution, override our laws and subjugation our citizens. All US citizens need to wise up as to the true intentions of this organization. We need to throw them out because as stated above . . . “The UN’s influence is POISON to the American way of life.”

  17. Aw yes, the same UN that once was instilled with child labor and the sex trade.
    Since when do they tells us what to do or not to do? Where were they when Obamacare made 6-30 million actually lose their insurance so others could have insurance. Nothing but silence from them then.
    I hope when he wrote of social security, he didn’t mean the social security you have to work 10 years or 40 quarters to actually receive it.
    And since when do we have international obligations?
    The UN must be kicked out of country, where we pay more than the others combined. We get nothing from them but bullying, intimidation and the sneaking of terrorist into our country. They are getting the nose of the camel pretty far into the tent. They pander to those of Islamic beliefs and ignore Christians. Where is their sympathy for them? Nothing but silence.
    And speaking of social security. That is another right that must be corrected.
    Back before the 2012 election, Stuart Varney exposed the fact that Obama took people out of unemployment and put them under SSDI to make his numbers look better. These are healthy workable people, now taking from SSDI and probably working under the table for cash also.
    I see nothing worthy to keep the UN in the US.

  18. Americans will never submit to the U.N. “Collective”. I’m with You Know Who, the U.N. premises would be a great building to refurb into an Embassy Suites type residential facility for homeless veterans (as well as many other buildings that serve no purpose). It could incorporate individual private suites, communal dining and social facilities, as well as offering built-in opportunities for “veterans first” employment. Add a couple of voluntary donation check boxes on our income tax forms for refurb/housing for homeless veterans.
