Spend a few minutes re-reading the Constitution of the United States, and see if you can find a mention of the President’s right to have discretion in which laws are enforced and who has to follow them.Yet, after his speech today, that is exactly what President Obama is dictating. With a wave of his magic wand, he is decreeing he will give insurance companies permission to continue offering insurance plans he previously said were illegal under the ACA – through 2014.
The President isn’t proposing the law be changed – he just wants to selectively enforce it. The Weekly Standard kindly calls this “an extralegal solution.” In other words, it’s completely outside the rule of law.The President is clearly in violation of his oath of office to uphold the laws of the land.
Smells like tyranny to me.
