|The emerging American Dictator, Redux|
|Thursday, 14 November 2013 17:30|
Several years ago (just over 4, to be exact), I wrote a blog entry about our emerging American dictator. Today simply confirms that President Obama has cemented that position, with his virtual rewrite of his signature, landmark, linchpin legislation, the PPACA - otherwise known as Obamacare. Because of the abject failure of the website, the public began to delve deeper. Because of the collapse of the website, the media could no longer ignore the failures of this Presidency - facts must come out. And today, they did.
The President stood before the nation, and said that he - not Congress, HE - was going to rewrite the ACA, overturn fundamental requirements that were already enshrined in law. The requirement for ending grandfathered policies is gone. The limits on policies that can be offered (what carriers/riders must be included) is toast. The President will unilaterally declare sections of the ACA to be null-and-void. Just as a petty, two-bit, banana-republic tyrant would do.
Remember, this is the President who told us this was settled law. His supporters never failed to remind us that the ACA was passed legislation and was found good by the Supreme Court. It could not be changed, could not be rolled back - it was settled law. And yet, now that the absolute failure (as I predicted several times in the past) that is Obamacare cannot be hidden, the President will do what any good dictator does: ignore the Rule of Law, ignore the Constitution, and just dictate what will happen.
