Fox: Obama's abortion executive order illegal
Fox News Channel | 3/21/10

Posted on 03/21/2010 2:31:25 PM PDT by pabianice

Per Fox legal analyst -- Obozo's executive order to get Stupak's vote unlawful; anything added to this vote changes the Senate bill and thus invalidates today's House vote.

We have this system of checks and balances....If they were faithful to it, we wouldn't be in this big friggin' mess...

I believe Obama's action makes him a dictator of the worst kind.

There’s a valid point here but an Executive Order has no standing to actual legislation.

What? Their intentions are to issue the executive order AFTER the HC bill passes, at which point their belief (wrongly) is that it will overrule legislation.

This EO doesn’t modify the text of any legislation, AFAIK.

IMHO, if Stupak wants to see if he’s getting lied to by Obamassiah, he should wait to cast his vote to see how the pro-abortion faction votes for the bill FIRST!!

If the pro-abort bunch votes YES, even after they know about Stupak and Obamassiah’s “deal” and he hasn’t even voted yet to tip the scales, HE’S BEEN HAD!!!!!!

Not formally but obviously its a condition indirectly connected to the bill that influences votes on the bill. This has to be completely illegal. However, it is historic and unprecedented, just what the dems love.

I was yelling at the TV, wanting Greta to ask Stupak about the problem with the "fix bill" making in through the Senate. She even commented about all the email she's received...I sincerely doubt this issue isn't mentioned a zillion times in them. But ask her how many times Joran VanDer Sloot was in the john yesterday, and I bet she'll know that.

I don't think Stupak fell for anything. He was looking for an out to vote yes with his party, and the leadership provided cover for him. I heard him say that other than the abortion section of the bill, he really liked the bill and it was what he campaigned for. Well, now he has what he campaigned for.

Here is why the EO is a complete shame...POTUS can’t legally alter where Congress spends the money they appropriate. Line item veto was ruled unconstitutional for just that reason.....here from NRO is more................
The Susan B. Anthony List observation that EOs can be rescinded at the president’s whim is of course true. This particuar EO is also a nullity — presidents cannot enact laws, the Supreme Court has said they cannot impound funds that Congress allocates, and (as a friend points out) the line-item veto has been held unconstitutional, so they can’t use executive orders to strike provisions in a bill. So this anti-abortion EO is blatant chicanery: if the pro-lifers purport to be satisfied by it, they are participating in a transparent fraud and selling out the pro-life cause.

Stupak didn't fall for it. He just wanted it as a CYA. Stupak played the pro-life card to get support to get support of pro-life voters. He was never pro-life-it was just a facade.

It gives him a back door and deniability.
