Outrageous? Not in a country whose citizens want to be taken care of and protected from ourselves.

We want the best cradle to grave, big Mommy state possible.

We like our mandatory seat belt laws and helmet laws, bans on smoking everywhere, even in our own homes, alcohol checkpoints, government and union pensions and health care, etc. and we have little to no problem trading personal liberty and freedom for all of it.

Give us a road paved by good intentions that someone else pays for and a strong leader who will take care of us and we'll be good and quiet.

Here, here! Is it outrageous that a politician's instinct is to issue an executive order because he has good intentions? His excuse... he cares about stopping cancer. Oh well, if he really cares then it's okay I guess. Did he apologize because the drug was imperfect or because his instinct was imperfect?

This should have gone through the legislature. He should not have issued an executive order.

Outrageous? No, not really. More like standard operating procedure for politicians. Oh boy, can't wait. Meet the new boss, same as the old.
