The "Law of the Land" fallacy

To all of those that make the 'law of the land claim' in regards to ACA:

  • If it is the law of the land, how do you explain away the Executive branch missing 41 of 82 deadlines that it detailed?
  • How do you justify their use of Executive fiat, in direct violation of the the Law and the Constitution, to decide to wave the Employer Mandate for one year?
  • How do you justify the Office of Personnel Management determining that it could grant a 71% subsidy to Congress and Congressional Staffers, even though the law specifically directs Congress to take part in the Obamacare exchanges and their salaries exceed the limits to qualify them for subsidies? 

 The Supreme Court didn't determine the Constitutionality of ACA. They rewrote it to make it Constitutional, acting in violation of the Constitution by exercising legislative powers that are granted to Congress.

One step further:

  • Slavery was Law.
  • Segregation was Law
  • Prohibition was a Constitutional Amendment
  • Women prohibited from voting was law
  • Japanese Internment was law
  • The Immigration laws Being ignored by President Obama Are laws
  • Defense of Marriage Act was settled Law.

A bad law is a bad law.  Just because it's law doesn't mean that we have to be stuck with it forever!



His very own words, proving for a fact, that he is a liar. It amazes me that the Republican Party never mentions it, the News Media never mentions it. It's almost like they themselves are part of it. There's a lot I would like to say here but I won't. I'll let Obama tell the story in his own words.

 Obama's Own Words:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

 Compare it to what he's saying today. Makes it pretty simple doesn't it?
