His contempt fro Republicans is palpable. So is his scorn for the Constiution. Obama is skirting the Constitution by delaying the employer mandate, suspending limits on out-of-pocket costs, and handing out carve-outs, exemptions, waivers, favors, and special deals. He is ignoring Article II of the Constitution that the President “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” Obama claims he has broad executive powers to do as he pleases. Maybe he does, and maybe he doesn't. In any event, he is flaunting and flouting these powers.
