Obama and His Health Law

Show me the man, and I’ll show you the law.

David Ferguson: Scottish Proverbs (1641)

Obama seems to think he is above the law.

Even as lower appeal courts fight to a draw.

He feels he can make or break any statute,

The President, you see, is a national statue.

His intentions, not the law, are what counts.

That is to what his attitude amounts.

The health law does not reflect his intent.

Its language does not say what he meant.

Critics say law is clear and unambiguous,

But with its words he is noncontiguous.

Mere words of the health law are meaningless,

To those uninsured in such distress.

Next legal step is full court of appeals.

His knowledge reveals how its majority feels.

He appointed four of its eleven judges.

Against him they harbor no real grudges.

Seven of the eleven voted Democratic.

Their decision will be for him automatic.

So says he, let the Supreme Court decide.

It cannot and will not my law override.
