    The president may refuse to do what a law requires him to do if he believes the law is unconstitutional.

    And the president can be forced to do it, if it is constitutional

    (Note: And we're talking about the health care laws. There's nothing unconstitutional about that)

    Maybe, depending on what "forced" means.

    "forced" = ordered by the courts to do it

    That's when you usually get a resolution, and every once in a while a constitutional crisis.

    You didn't. You simply denied saying what you plainly said.

    This is getting truly pathetic. Grow up.

    No, I didn't.

    But there is no point in arguing with you, since you lack the respect to accept my explanation of my own words. It's too bad. I don't disrespect you that way.
