The habitual behavior of this administration, circumventing and ignoring the powers and responsibilities set forth in the Constitution, and it’s limitation of the powers of the office of the President could come to a head (as Michael Cannon, Cato Institute’s Director of Health Policy Studies, testified before a Congressional Committee).
During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obama’s disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert testified that the consequences of the president’s behavior were potentially grave. He said that the precedent set by Obama could eventually lead to an revolt against the federal government.
On Tuesday, Michael Cannon, Cato Institute’s Director of Health Policy Studies, testified before a congressional committee about the dangers of the president’s legal behavior.
“There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restrains that the constitution places on the government,” Cannon said. “Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”
Aside from Obama’s taking over the legislative powers that the Constitution declares only shall be exercised by Congress by his unilateral changing of the ACA, he has violated finacia law by moving around appropriated set forth for specific spending, to fund his other agenda items for which Congress did not finance. He has also bypassed the legislative branch by having the government agencies under him create law (via rules, regulations and enforcement/unenforcement orders) without these being approved by Congress.
Should the public be forced to resort to the final desperate stage of insurrection, as it’s it’s right to rem0ve a government -that no longer represents but instead rules over The People-, can any doubt that Dictator Obama would immediately declare national martial law and a suspension of the Constitution? With the Constitution suspended, the other two branches of government could then be ignored. This is after all the normal final phase of the Socialist regime playbook that a tyrannical executive branch follows when taking over a nation.
