Treasury Department officials didn't check to make sure they had the legal authority to delay an Obamacare mandate before issuing guidance that flouted the text of the law, a department official told House investigators.
Treasury Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy Mark Mazur, who announced the employer mandate delay in a blog post, told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that he didn't remember anyone considering the legal basis for the delay.
"Did anyone in the Department of the Treasury inquire into the legal authority for the delays?" Mazur was asked.
"I don't recall anything along those lines, no," he replied. He gave a similar answer when asked about the IRS and the Executive Office of the President.

if te governent is not going to obey their own laws, then the citizens no longer have to either.
Wait’ said Mark Mazur, we have laws....?
Who knew ?
Isn't being king enough authority?
These are the kind of people who will gladly send their fellow citizens to concentration camps.
Obama is the law.
It is good to be king.
The law is whatever Valerie Jarrett says it is.
It is unlawful for them to do so......
I heard from a unnamed source that Valerie Jarrett, better known as lizard face, eats bugs.
I heard Valerie crushes her prey and swallows it whole.
“Obama said”, is all the info they needed, you can’t tell Obama NO.
I see: Now it wasn’t Bama who delayed the mandate, but Treasury.
No doubt POTUS knows absolutely nothing about this, either.
There are many people in this country who truly believe the federal government can do anything it wants to do. There are also many people who believe Obama can do anything he wants to do. There are many people who are HAPPY that Obama IS doing anything he wants to do.
And there are some republican lawmakers on those lists.
Looks like we are in the post-law phase in the American experiment. Thug-ism now rules the day.
