Second cousin and vocal tea party critic of Barack Obama, Dr. Milton Wolf (left) is a gracious friend to the site and personal friend as well.
Wolf has been on a roll lately, writing piece after excellent piece at The Washington Times. Today's op-ed takes on the tyranny of "selective enforcement" of America's most anti-American piece of legislation in its history: Obamacare.
Exclusionary waivers will be a major factor in impetus for repeal of Obamacare going forward.
Wolf knows this.
From Milton Wolf, M.D.'s piece at The Washington Times:
Please read the rest. Milton Wolf also blogs at The Wolf Files.
Selective enforcement of the law is the first sign of tyranny. A government empowered to determine arbitrarily who may operate outside the rule of law invariably embraces favoritism as friends, allies and those with the best-funded lobbyists are rewarded. Favoritism inevitably leads to corruption, and corruption invites extortion. Ultimately, the rule of law ceases to exist in any recognizable form, and what is left is tyranny.
The now-familiar monthly trickling down of new waivers is, at best, a tacit admission that Obamacare is a failure. So far, seven entire states and 1,372 businesses, unions and other institutions have received waivers from the law. The list includes the administration’s friends and allies and, of course, those who have the bestlobbyists.
More than 50 percent of the Obamacare waiver beneficiaries are union members, which is striking because union members account for less than 12 percent of the American work force. The same unions that provided more than $120 million to Democrats in the last two elections and, in many cases, openly campaigned in favor of the government takeover of your health care, now celebrate that Obamacare is not their problem.
