I'm not a law student nor do I need to be to be highly disturbed by Obama's executive decision today.
Let me get this right: Obama is telling individual state insurance commissioners to ignore new federal law passed by Congress and signed by His Highness into place three years ago. Doesn't Congress, for cripe's sake, have to vote and approve a change like this? (of course they are required to)
Who gave him authority to, just on a whim, ignore any federal law? Why in God's name is the press not picking up on this today?
Are too many Americans today just to flat-out illiterate to see King Obama's blatant executive overreach and just how dangerous and unconstitutional it is?
It makes me think that we need more literate immigrants versed in what America truly stands for to save this country.
For example, I follow a German immigrant fella named Hansi N. on Facebook (LCR's Facebook page).
Hansi understands the perils this nation is in the midst of. For example, he caught this headline and edited it to reflect the basic civics lesson he learned when he came to America:
When I went to Civics Class for my US Citizenship, it was emphasized that a US President is no Dictator / King, and does not have the power to "allow" and not "allow" laws, that are strictly made by congress and nobody else. So I went back into my books and found it, and pasted it over today's news-line.He's right and smarter than a large portion of the American public at this point.
