Obama 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.
