    Really? You think it's OK for Obama to bend the Constitution, but not OK for Bush to do the same? Isn't that a bit hypocritical?

    Were you just being tongue in cheek when you said that?

    if you call it a fee instead of a tax, congress isn't needed.

    You just gotta remember to call it a tax in front of the Supreme Court.

    BREAKING: Federal judge finds Obama amnesty is unconstitutional

    A federal judge has found parts of President Obama’s new deportation amnesty to be unconstitutional, issuing a scathing memo Tuesday accusing him of usurping Congress’s power to make laws, and dismantling most of the White House’s legal reasoning for circumventing Congress.

    Judge Arthur J. Schwab, sitting in the western district of Pennsylvania, said presidents do have powers to use discretion in deciding how to enforce the law, but said Mr. Obama’s new policy goes well beyond that, setting up a full system for granting legal protections to broad groups of individuals. He said Mr. Obama writing laws — a power that’s reserved for Congress, not the president.

    “President Obama’s unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause, and therefore is unconstitutional,” Judge Schwab wrote.

    The judge also said the policy allows illegal immigrants “to obtain substantive rights.”

    That case isn't going anywhere. Its completely unrelated to the lawsuits challenging the executive action. This was just a judge who asserted his opinion on an issue completely unrelated to the case he was deciding.

    And constitutional chaos at it's finest. This is completely absurd. Not only is he basically trying to grant the executive branch more power than it already has, he's completely corrupting our checks & balances system. He's like an impulsive child not thinking about the consequences of his actions.
