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.

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”.

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.

“INTERNATIONAL LAW” is one of the reasons Trump won the election. He is there to explicitly break international law in any place where it violates our national sovereignty.

I can only hope that David Rockefeller croaked soon after receiving Trump’s response.

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… Read more »

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.
