From the article: ” Liberals and Democrats will rue the day that they supported such a destabilizing and dangerous aggregation of power in the Executive Branch. With polls showing Democrats more unpopular than their opponents, we could be looking at a Republican presidency. That individual may use the same unilateral powers to suspend environmental or discrimination laws.”
Indeed, robbing the American people under the guise of helping them is what the State is best known for. The fact that it’s the Democrats caught with their hand in the cookie jar and might lose power and upset the pet doctrines of the religious left is the real scary thing!
I recently testified (here and here and here) and wrote a column on President Obama’s increasing circumvention of Congress in negating or suspending U.S. laws. Obama has repeated suspended provisions of the health care law and made unilateral changes that were previously rejected by Congress. He has also moved hundreds of millions from one part of the Act to other parts without congressional approval. Now, his administration is reportedly changing key provisions of the ACA to potentially make billions of dollars available to the insurance industry in a move that was never debated, let alone approved, by the legislative branch. Ironically, I just ran another column this month listing such incidents of executive over-reach that ideally would have included this potentially huge commitment under Obama’s claimed discretionary authority.
