The only evidence that is out there now is the total failure of this economic policy. Tax rate cuts would have put more money into the hands of the people immediately and empowered them. Obama empowered the govt. not the individuals and thus is creating the failure we have now.
If you were running a company and got these kind of results after spending this amount of money and creating this kind of debt you would be fired.
We need to keep things honest. OK, the Dems won a round. OK, Republicans have their work cut out for them. OK, time to get to work on strategy. This election result only lasts until November. Back to the drawing board, and let's see if we can win this then. But to downplay the results, after hyping the election for more than a month, is extremely dishonest. And let me add that people are not stupid. If those trying to get PA-12 away from the Democrats this fall continue their dishonesty, people will remember, and all will be lost there. Honesty is not only the best policy here. It is the ONLY policy if you want to win.

The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
Nothing that Obama has done has been unconstitutional as best I can tell, though I am not a constitutional law expert...nor are you I would bet.
Another area of concern is states' rights which are guaranteed in the Constitution. It is the role of the govt. to protect the citizens of this country from domestic and foreign enemies. Illegal immigration is a threat to our citizens and the Federal Govt. is doing nothing to prevent it.
Then there is the economic disaster that this President is creating. Our economy was built on free enterprise, capitalism and individual wealth creation, not the redistribution of wealth which Obama is doing.
Illegal immigration from Mexico to the United States has decreased so another point invalid.
Obama has broken no laws regarding the economy, if you think he has state in which bill he has and where in the constitution it violates.

Buy Insurance or Go to Jail? - The Note
thomas barthold's by now infamous phillipic on the topic:During last year's campaign, then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., opposed an individual mandate. In fact, he clashed repeatedly with Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., his future Secretary of State, on this issue.
Since becoming president, however, he has switched his stance and now shares Clinton's view that an individual mandate is necessary in order to achieve new federal protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions.
