Price for Transforming America is too High


The ACA was unconstitutional as presented and survives only as tax legislation, meaning it would need to have originated in the House to be constitutional, which it did not. But let us pretend it adheres to constitutional requirements to continue: Does Congress spend the time developing a bill, seeing it through both Houses of Congress, for a president to change the bill however and whenever he sees fit? The answer is no and we desperately need to elect a president in 2016 who will take his oath of office seriously, as Democrats will not see to it that he does.

Recall how Democrats during George Bush’s second term howled at the suggestion of the elimination of the filibuster. They cried that a president’s judicial nominations being approved only by a simple majority in the Senate would be the end of democracy. Then President Obama squeaked through re-election and the Democrats changed the Senate rules so they could do just that. They pretended Republicans were holding up so many nominations that it was causing grid lock, and our corrupt news media promoted the falsehood, all the way down to the leftist, infantile blather in editorial pages. In truth, Republicans had approved of two hundred twelve nominations, held up only two. That’s the crisis of grid lock to which they were referring. Now he can appoint any crazed lunatic he desires.

Senator Obama said that George Bush was “unpatriotic” for racking up so much debt, and then proceeded in five years to rack up more debt than all past presidents combined. That was back when Hillary Clinton said “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.” Now, anyone who disagrees with Democrats in power is made out to be an enemy of the State! Hillary has a rich history of expertise in this area, that of collecting information on political opponents to use against them, and it will be unfortunate if we have to explore it again.
