WTF? The GOP Senators are encouraging Obama to become even more LAWLESS?????
The Lawless President
Its not so much that he thinks hes above the law as that he thinks he is the law.
The duties of the President of the United States are spelled out in Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution, which states, inter alia, that the President shall take Care that the laws be faithfully executed. As Stanford Law Professor and former federal judge Michael McConnell explained in yesterdays Wall Street Journal, This is a duty, not a discretionary power. While the president does have substantial discretion about how to enforce a law, he has no discretion about whether to do so.
Section 1513(d) of the Unaffordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) states unequivocally, The amendments made by this section shall apply to months beginning after December 31, 2013. In other words, the provisions of Obamacare become fully effective in 2014, as a matter of duly enacted federal law.
But over the long Fourth of July weekend, in a Never Mind moment, the Obama Administration announced, through a Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, that contrary to federal law, the employer mandate of Obamacare shall not become fully effective in months beginning after December 31, 2013, but only in months beginning after December 31, 2014. Making the announcement through such a low level Administration official to me says that Obama has contempt for the American people, and for the rule of law.

You are exactly right. Obama is blatantly and willfully usurping the Constitution and violating his oath of Office by refusing to enact and enforce a law of Congress. It is shameful and unbelievable that Senate Republicans would encourage more of the same. Fucking dimwits.
