Conservative Nebraska Senate candidate Ben Sasse, who has been surging since being labeled the anti-Obamacare candidate, has released a "Constitutional Madness" bracket to highlight the lawlessness of the Obama administration.

"Which is President Obama's worst constitutional violation?" the bracket says. "Make your picks!"

Pairings include "allowing congressional Obamacare subsidies" versus "forcing taxpayers to violate religious conscience by funding abortion through Obamacare" to "Using the IRS to suppress free speech" to "Secret monitoring of Fox News and the Associated Press."

Sasse, who has vowed to take on the permanent political class and has already clashed with the Washington establishment, was most recently endorsed by former Alaska. Gov. Sarah Palin.

Here are the "Constitutional Madness" regionals:

EAST REGION

ROUND ONE

Allowing congressional Obamacare subsidies.

VS

Forcing taxpayers to violate religious conscience by funding abortion through Obamacare.

Two-year delay in Obamacare individual mandate.

VS

Empowering IPAB to govern health care without Congress.

VS

Implementing the DREAM Act without legislation.

VS

Changing welfare work rules without legislation.

WEST REGION

ROUND ONE

Six-month moratorium on deep water drilling in the Gulf.

VS

White House "kill list" includes Americans without due process.

VS

Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 without legislation.

Collecting bulk data from Americans' cell phones.

"Conservative Nebraska Senate candidate Ben Sasse, who has been surging since being labeled the anti-Obamacare candidate..."

But, but, but according to the "In midterms, we get clobbered" thread, "Americans agree with Democrats on every issue."

A total crock of Obama, like everything else he says.

If it’s lawlessness, then stop playing games and prepare to impeach.
