It is becoming increasingly hard to tell whether Obamacare is the law of the land, or just the law of the parts of the land that dont reside in (or arent in the good graces of) the executive branch.

also, if govt decides it won’t enforce certain laws of the land, we can also be selective in what laws we’re going to recognize and which ones we’ll ignore
I’m confused. If Bundy in Nevada “doesn’t have a legal leg to stand on” gets armed BLM jerks to point guns at him why haven’t HHS sent some to the Oval Office?
