Rand Paul introduces bill to stop Obama from illegally changing Obamacare

Rand_Paul_2013_CPAC_by_Gage_SkidmoreObama seems to think that, just because it’s named after him, he can pick and choose which parts of Obamacare he wants to enforce and when. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced a bill Thursday that would prevent Obama from circumventing Congress when it comes to Obamacare:

“The Obama administration is trying to rewrite ObamaCare by executive fiat and that act is a violation of the separation of powers in the United States Constitution,” Paul said in a press release. “This and other attempts by the Obama administration to rewrite the law can be stopped if this bill becomes law.”

The Constitutional Check and Balance Act authorizes members of Congress to take the administration to federal court if the president, or any other executive branch official, directs federal agencies to not enforce a provision of law.

Obama is guilty of using his executive powers for many things, but none so much as Obamacare. It’s time we put an end to his imperialistic tendencies.

        Guys, just keep on doing the good work you are. I do have a guy in the House on your side, but
        the two Dems as Senators, forget about them. I do thank all of you that are fighting for us.

        • Paula

          Yes, we are fighting and the Congress is doing nothing. Nothing. At the first hint, not lie, hint of bull going on in the White House, the Congress should have demanded that Eric Holder to do something that was not partisan. The Justice Department, for centuries has been the bulwark of oversight on just such a situation as this. Holder’s ex boss, Janet Reno did investigate the executive branch and opened up an independent counsel to look into it. As did Archibald Cox. He opened an independent council to look in Nixon’s campaign contributions and into the IRS when Nixon tried to play such games. Holder on the other hand, rather his entire Justice Department is beholden to Obama and won’t touch him. Neither will the Supreme Court, the Senate, now it seems will the Congress.This is why it does not make any sense for the executive branch to nominate the head of offices like the Justice Department or the Supreme Court.These people owe the President for their jobs and are less apt to go after him. Yet in the past they have. What has changed? What does this president have over the entire Congress. He acts like he has something on Congress, such as blackmail and if they even try impeachment proceedings he will “tell on them” like the schoolyard bully he is. He is nothing but an organizer. Not even a good one. His ACORN got audited and was found with multiple IRS problems. But did that go anywhere? No. If it had, he may have not been elected the first time. All that “Hope” and “Change” was nothing but Hype and Scam and he smoked our hope like it was dope and kept the change. He is the Lone Ranger and there is no one who can or will stop him. It should have been stopped the moment he began such shenanigans and it would have never went as far as it has nor have continued as it has the moment Obama found out he would not be getting away with it. Now he takes it a his right. We have a very arrogant and dangerous man enmeshed in so much power that no one will be able to stop him. Texas filed suit on him and won the battle of the guns as we call it down here. But the question remains: “Why does the Congress keep calling him out on these things but refuses to act? The only leadership that has been shown has been from our young guns. The future of our country. People like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Bobby Jindal and Marco Rubio. There are so many more but they are afraid. They are in Democratic states and are afraid for their seats from their liberal-minded fool constituents. That is why we need term limits. If we had them, corruption would not sink in a far as it has because by the time the politician is able pay back the favor, he would already be out of office and having to live under the same laws he voted for and we have to. Just like the Madison papers say, Madison, if anyone doesn’t know their history, was the fourth president of the US. He wrote that Congress shall pass no laws that they themselves do not have to live by. That is exactly what Obamacare is. Yet, still, no one acts. Why is this. I just cannot understand it. Live Love from the great Republic of Texas!

            I like those Texans. I am German borne and came to the States in 1957. I see more and more of the Gestapo and Russia sitting in the White House AMERICA wake up before it is too late. I can guess that the NSA has it’s nose in my affairs. My Sister called we talked only about our Family and we were disconnected. I called her back to thank her for her call. When she picked up we both said at the same time OBAMA, if I would have said the NSA she may have not known who I was talking about. AMERICA wake up. Hurray for TEXAS.

          • Paula

            My father was born in Germany, my aunt in Poland, my grandmother in Russia and my grandfather in Transylvania (modern Romania). They were always traveling because they were furriers and in order to buy different furs from each other, place orders, arrange marriages, find out the latest gossip, etc.They were lucky in that respect, having travel visas to come and go. At this time, the news was rolled on walls, kinda liked whitewashed. I have pictures of it in France. It is really weird how they used to read the news on the walls of buildings. But my great grandparents were scared when they saw the rise of Lenin, Stalin and the death of Trotsky. They made plans right then and there to send my grandfather to San Antonio, TX. A brilliant idea. A fur company deep in south Texas! Texas was a crossroads town, Alsace,Polish, German and Mexican and there was no prejudice. My grandfather left my grandmother and opened a store in Houston, TX. Hers was called Alaska Furs and his Laska Furs. She even got a plague from then Henry B. Gonzalez for being a single mother, a business woman in business for more than 50 yrs, and an immigrant. That’s what immigrants do, they open businesses and bring a piece of their country to this one. Sadly, that is not the case today. I am scared. I have a 21 yr. old daughter in college but I have no place to run. I am the first generation Texan. My father, who quit school by the 3rd grade because he didn’t speak the language, flew under MacArthur in the Pacific Theater for a country that was barely even his. He was a pilot and a pilot’s mechanic. My Dad is still alive, is almost 100 yrs old. I am 56 and was definitely a baby boomer. If immigrants can’t give something to our country besides take from it, then we have to protect her from them. These are strange notions coming from an immigrant’s daughter, but every one of my relatives owned their own businesses and paid into the system. They paid their taxes. They worked hard. They had a work ethic. Life in Russia taught you that much at least or you didn’t eat. Problem was you were, say if you were a farmer, farming for others instead of your own family. The auditor would come by every so often and tell the farmers how much of their produce when to the state’s masses and how much they could keep of their own food they planted and worked for. And God forbid if you took an extra turkey for a holiday meal. That would certainly land you in jail. So this “spread the wealth” doctrine that Obama pushes does not apply to them. As Michelle so aptly put it,”It has to come out of someone’s pie.” I wonder whose pie her Christmas vacation to Hawaii was? Her birthday “bash? And let’s not forget the African Safari Michelle and her entourage took. Whose piece of the pie will pay for me a luxurious vacation. No one’s. Because I am not part of the elitists. We are just their slaves. Live Love from the great Republic of Texas!

    This is not a time of normalcy in this country.
    If Obama Care could be stopped and replaced, it would benefit this country. Cudos to Rand Paul for “standing up” for us.
    If you connect the dots of what this Democratic Party, Obama & his Administration & the liberal/socialist/Marxist media are doing with purpose and forethought to this country, I don’t think there is anything normal about it.
    That the above will lie, cheat and steal (& who knows what else?) unapologeticallty to bring about by “buying” their total and complete control over “We the people” is far beyond anything seen in recent times.
    I could try to list all they are doing but I think most of you already know.
    They have spent a large portion of the 7 trillions dollars of our tax dollars in buying votes including, but not limited to, giving social services to illegals in exchange for their vote AND “buying” the poor with Obama Care. Those illegals/criminals should never be rewarded for their criminality. In fact, I would rather they be replace with Latinos waiting legally in line to come here who will be proud to fly OUR flag and teach their children to be good citizens. The new mantra: illegals/criminals are more important than citizens.
    If Obama had spent as much effort making it easier for job creation, many citizens would be saving their homes and families.
    Although our conservative politicians are reluctant to call them liars, I am not so constrained. Have we sunk so low that few even notice or care whether they lie or not — the end justifies the means?
    The middle class is being “crushed” under the debt loaded on them and Obama says he is for the middle class while systematically destroying it.

  • Karl Dulaff

    So a new law is required to help force the Executive Branch to obey the laws that are already written? DC liberals ignore all laws.

    • http://Yahoo Doris

      All the Politicans have had 5 years to get Obama out,They have enough facts to REMOVE Him,And they keep asking for Donations to do the job they signned when they took the oath To get into office.

      There letting to many thiings get shoved under the carpet.

      It is getting time for the AMERICAN PEOPLE to take over your jobs. We are losing our Patience on your inabilaty in accomplishng the task of working for the people..
      WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND BARACK H OBAMA AND HIS REGIME TO BE TRIED FOR TREASON ,along with 70% of the Senate ,and 40% of Congress, starting with Boehner.the TRADER.

      These are FACTS.

      • Paula

        I agree completely with you but that is the job of the Congress and they are paralyzed to do anything.. It is like Obama has something on them. A Justice Department that refuses to form an impartial independent council. The fact that the president nominates the heads of these organization such as the Justice Department and the Supreme Court. These people do not want to go up against the man who put them into their offices, that is the reason for INDEPENDENT COUNSELS! The one thing Congress does have going for it are the younger Constitutional savvy what I call our “Young Guns,” who, if they are not corrupted, will eventually replace these RINOS or they will be voted out. I believe Harry Reid is done in the Senate for slamming the Obamacare patients who are in real trouble, cannot get their medicines, on and on and on, and Reid, from the Senate floor, calls these people Liars! A Senator calling the American people Liars. That’s rich coming from the king of the Liars, besides Jay Carney, that is.Now that Russia has sized Obama up and has seen him in action, know, having been a criminal ruling party themselves for so long, a bumbling criminal trying to enact foreign policy. This guy has absolutely no experience and he hasn’t the people around him that he should to advise him on the best course of action to take. All Kerry is is a mouthpiece for Obama and Obama knows not wherefore he speaks. He is no foreign policy president, hell, we don’t really even have a policy in foreign affairs. This would have never happened if, when North Korea’s leaders said,”We are declaring war on you,” we would have gone over there, taken him out, and proved to every country on earth that we still are the super power we claim to be. All that we can say now is that the president is the leader of the free world. We are no longer a super power we once were. But we could have taken Korea out in a heartbeat and that is exactly what we should have done. Hell, he declared war on us and we had every right to go over there and protect our interests–which is our base in South Korea and South Korea itself. We were seen as weak then. But when Obama opened his mouth with Syria and drew the now infamous “red line” then did nothing but let Putin enter the game, we got our fannies handed to us on a platter. We got nothing and Syria got to keep their long range nuclear capability missiles! Was that helping the only ally we have in the Middle East–Israel? Not one bit. Putin should have not even been involved in any of our negotiations. Syria does not have designs on Russia, only it’s own people. And Obama, after using the threat, showed the entire world that all his threats will come to naught. Putin had him sized up and found him lacking. When Putin went into Ukraine this weekend, Obama should have ousted the Russian ambassador because we happen to have a treaty called the Budapest Treaty that says that any country that invades another we will go in and help. He has ignored this, even though I realize the American people do not have the stomach or the money for another conflict in a region that is so far away. We hung dictators and those working for dictators for doing the same thing in Nuremberg. This administration will be known, and it will be Obama’s legacy, as the most reviled President in US history and for good reason. I hold a BA in Education and a BA in history with a field minor in historical research. The American people have been hurt, lied to, and are now seen as what Russia is…a third world country with nuclear capability That is like India and Pakistan Do we now form a line of the countries who saw Obama for what he was a long time ago? We will never be the power we were again. And the Republican party will not be seen as it was again as it was, more than likely, again in our life times. But one thing is historically correct: The American people do not like one party in power for too long. The exception to the was the Bushes, but even there Clinton was elected as a Democrat..But even though the Democratic party and the fools that follow them are jumping ship quicker and faster everyday and things like what Harry Reid said will be a good starting point when the debates start, The Republicans don’t really have to debate. All they have to do is ask their democratic opponent about the scandals and watch them lie to the people all over again.

  • JI

    KR – I really like that poem, very insightful. Thanks. It is sad that we have leaders that have forgotten or don’t care about what Old Glory stands for. Coming back to the States from another country and seeing our Flag every where has always been a comfort. WE THE PEOPLE still means something no matter how much Big Brother tries to squash our beliefs, rights and spirits. I know some of you will disagree with me sometimes although my intentions are pure. What is happening in this Country is causing me to feel closer to my neighbors. I do care about people and I don’t want to see harm come to those that stand with me. WE need to stick together EVEN more now than ever. My eyes are open and I can see our liberties are being taken away in subtitle ways. I have learned recently our leaders have been gaining more control over us for decades. I am above average intelligence but I have entrusted my life and future to people I don’t even know. I would never do that in day to day life. Shame on ME. I have vowed to care about all of my neighbors in America. I will not survive a disaster without you. I believe things are worse in this Country than we are being told. As I research Bills that are being passed the more I realize things will get even worse. Big Brother watches our internet trails and watches more than we can fathom. I am not paranoid and I have nothing to hide but my/our right to privacy is being violated more and more. The Bill of Rights means nothing these days. I read them again the other day and it makes me realize how much we really are being violated. I just want to be realistic and not be caught off guard. Please note that the Bills I spoke of are available to view on Gov websites. Some are H.R. 2847-(effective 7/1/14) forces Foreign countries to report all USD’s to the IRS. China, Japan, Russia and France are already discussing ways to abandon the USD as the Worlds Reserve Currency. Desperate Governments do desperate things. Look at HR 347 and HR 645. Look for information imbedded in the mumbo jumbo that gives the Gov more and more power. When and if all hell breaks loose I will do my best to be there for my fellow man and I hope someone looks out for me and my family. WE need God’s protection and guidance now more than ever. Don’t get caught up in the “Normalcy Bias”. I am looking for non violent ways everyday to fight an over reaching gov. I will not just lay down and give up. Thanks for letting me rant. God Bless us ALL.

    • Carolyn Queener

      You are right. I couldn’t have said it better. But apathy has taken over the Sheeple.

      • JI

        Carolyn, apathy is a perfect way to describe it. 90 percent if the people I come in contact with daily show no interest as to what our gov is doing. They just go about their lives never really seeing our liberties are being taken away a little at a time. It is disturbing. That is why I mentioned the “Normalcy Bias” in my last post. It is a term used by Sociologists and Psychologists. People should look up the meaning. It is when all hell is breaking loose but because we have never been through a crisis or don’t think it can happen to us, we just go about every day life until we are on our knees. The Jews in Germany didn’t see that Hitler was taking control little by little. Only about 100 thousand Jews left before it was too late. 450 thousand Jews didn’t think it could happen to them because they had never experienced anything like it. They had jobs, investments, homes and they were complacent. They lost their lives for it. I can see things are anything but normal in the US. Americans think they will revolt if things get too bad but, our Government has already passed a bill stating the President can declare Marshall Law if necessary. If we become violent, the Military will be instructed to subdue us. Make no mistake, we are no longer free. This is why we must stand together and find non violent ways to stop this control. It all comes down to MONEY. We are in serious financial trouble and possibly on the verge of the USD collapsing. That is why Big Brother will never tolerate riots in the streets. They will keep their law and order (control) at any cost. American Citizens can now be declared as threats to National Security. We are sitting ducks unless this Country wakes up. Other countries are already discussing abandoning the USD. France, Russia, China are all aware the US is in trouble and the Worlds Reserve Currency is on the verge of collapse. . I am on your side. If my neighbor falls it will be a matter of time before it is me and my family that goes down with you. Throughout history God’s people have always prevailed and declared victory so we need God behind us and His direction. There are ways for us to fight this over reaching gov but it won’t be by shooting people or shooting our way out ( as tempting as it may sound). We need to continue to educate ourselves and neighbors about the TRUTH of what is happening. I know desperate governments do desperate things and it is obvious these are desperate times. We can’t pretend things are ok anymore. The writing is on the wall. Tell everyone you know US citizens are not safe and secure anymore. The beast is at the door. My prayers are with us all. Including those trapped in the “Normalcy Bias”.

        I have to disagree with you, Mitt Romney was against him but people didn’t

        have Senator Rand Paul speaks against him all the time and he needs all of your support (money wise) to help him fight the cause. I have written to
        many Senators, Congressmen and supported them, have you? I don’t know

        how many have you voted in????

        • Cliff

          I am 69 AND have voted in every election since I have been old enough to do so. It is kind of hard for ANY Republican to win an election when the voting machines are pre-programmed to vote DUMBOCRAT. How else do you think Our glorious dictator-in Chief got more than 100% in the “swing vote” districts. AND after the republican poll watchers were kicked out and then allowed back much later. Also our overseas Military personnel votes were again disqualified. For your Information I voted for Mitt Romney. If you can’t win… CHEAT.

          • http://none Audre

            To let you know, if you had watched Clinton’s second time running and Obama gave this great
            speech about and nominated him to run for President, you would have know that Obama was going
            to be the next President after him. They made a deal that he helps Clinton when she runs (and I will
            not vote for a woman President) Obama will help her. Remember how they left the White House when they left. It was a mess. I knew in the 7th grade I was going to be a Republican and I gre
            in a Democrat household with a Father head of the Union. and he hated it.

  • Paula

    Rand Paul knows one thing and that is the Constitution of the United States. Obama has been guilty for a long time of not protecting the Constitution as he promised the American people he would when he was first elected. He meant it even less the second time around. Screw suing him, it is way past the time to impeach.

    • Mary

      I love Rand Paul, but what I DO NOT understand is why this PRICK of a President has not been “DETHROWNED” yet? What is the deal? Get rid of this nightmare of a so called leader before we are all doomed. We are too close to the cliff as it is. I swear they have not Impeached him yet because he is black and for political reasons. WHO CARES? go for it stand on principal and do what is right by the Constitution and the PEOPLE for C sake. Congress will be much more respected if they rule by the LAW OF THE LAND vs fearing racisism. It drives me up the wall. They have no _____

        Mary ,
        You are absolutely right. If this POS was a WHITE Republican, He would have been GONE by now.

So when the shit hits the fan, which it will, we will just tell everyone to go and have a nice day because we’re from the country of Texas. In 1815, Texas was the “Nation of Texas.” Until 1815, when we became the 15th state to join the Union. William Barrett Travis, penned a letter, writing from desperately needed help because a small outpost in San Antonio called the Alamo was being overtaking by General Santa Ana. He said in his letter that more Mexican reinforcements were arriving everyday but as of yet, they had not lost a man. Davy Crockett was from Tennessee. At the end of his letter were these words, “In Liberty or Death.” What we will do is take to the Alamo and if you haven’t heard the song by Ray Wiley Hubbard yet, go to Utube and see the video and listen to the song. It is called,”Screw You, We’re From Texas.”

  • Cliff

    I have seen these “bills” come and go, but the usurper of power still continues to thumb his nose at Congress and The American people. Until Congress grows a “set” and start enforcing the Constitutional Laws that are already in place, “he” will just do as he damn well pleases. (just as he has been saying all along) To quote his highness “I am the President, I can do what I want” I guess this country has turned into a dictatorship. Smarten up America! Remember in November and vote the Dumbocrats OUT. And Rinos too while you are at it. Time to take BACK our country.

      I PLEDGE MY ALLEGIANCE TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

      I am the Flag

      by Ruth Apperson Rous

      I am the flag of the United States of America.

      I was born on June 14, 1777, in Philadelphia.

      There the Continental Congress adopted my stars and stripes as the national flag.

      My thirteen stripes alternating red and white, with a union of thirteen white stars in a field of blue,
      represented a new constellation,
      a new nation dedicated to the personal and religious liberty of mankind.

      Today fifty stars signal from my union, one for each of the fifty sovereign states in the greatest
      constitutional republic the world has ever known.

      My colors symbolize the patriotic ideals and spiritual qualities of the citizens of my country.

      My red stripes proclaim the fearless courage and integrity of American men and boys and the
      self-sacrifice and devotion of American mothers and daughters.

      My white stripes stand for liberty and equality for all.

      My blue is the blue of heaven, loyalty, and faith.

      I represent these eternal principles: liberty, justice, and humanity.

      I embody American freedom: freedom of speech, religion, assembly, the press, and the sanctity
      of the home.

      I typify that indomitable spirit of determination brought to my land by Christopher Columbus
      and by all my forefathers – the Pilgrims, Puritans, settlers at James town and Plymouth.

      I am as old as my nation.

      I am a living symbol of my nation’s law: the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights.

      I voice Abraham Lincoln’s philosophy: “A government of the people, by the people,for the people.”

      I stand guard over my nation’s schools, the seedbed of good citizenship and true patriotism.

      I am displayed in every schoolroom throughout my nation; every schoolyard has a flag pole for my display.

      Daily thousands upon thousands of boys and girls pledge their allegiance to me and my country.

      I have my own law—Public Law 829, “The Flag Code” – which definitely states my correct use and
      display for all occasions and situations.

      I have my special day, Flag Day. June 14 is set aside to honor my birth.

      Americans, I am the sacred emblem of your country. I symbolize your birthright,
      your heritage of liberty purchased with blood and sorrow.

      I am your title deed of freedom, which is yours to enjoy and hold in trust for posterity.

      If you fail to keep this sacred trust inviolate, if I am nullified and destroyed,
      you and your children will become slaves to dictators and despots.

      Eternal vigilance is your price of freedom.

      As you see me silhouetted against the peaceful skies of my country,
      remind yourself that I am the flag of your country, that I stand for what you are – no more, no less.

      Guard me well, lest your freedom perish from the earth.

      Dedicate your lives to those principles for which I stand: “One nation under God, indivisible,
      with liberty and justice for all.”

      I was created in freedom. I made my first appearance in a battle for human liberty.

      God grant that I may spend eternity in my “land of the free and the home of the brave”
      and that I shall ever be known as “Old Glory,” the flag of the United States of America.
