    Wait a minute, are you trying to suggest that these employers keeping their money, ie not being dinged if they don't obey ACA rules, is akin to being "hungry". Seriously? He gave them a reward they were asking for and never let them even miss a meal. Y'all are really bizarre.

    I look forward to the Republicans winning the suit, and which would mean all those businesses back pay with interest and penalty, the original penalty they would've paid. I with complete malice in my heart, hope they sue, hope it goes to court, and hope they win. It'll cost business owners a fortune and they'll dump the GOP.

    Hmm, clearly my 'add a poll' ability seems somewhat impaired. I intended to add a Yes/No question
    It's not just you but it's also not the point.
    ACA is a Law.
    ACA is a bad Law.
    ACA is a bad Law whose damage was delayed by an unconstitutional Executive Action.
    ACA is a bad Law which would have had a greater degree of being exposed as a bad Law and repealed had it not been so often changed by someone other than the people empowered to change it.

    On the one hand Obama changed a Law (bad juju) and on the other hand he won't enforce them (immigration law), which btw, he made worse with another one of his Executive actions.
    That Executive stuff just ain't working out well for the Country with this guy.

    He's deported more people than anyone before him.

    This is simply partisan politics and fodder for GOP fundraising.

    As if Bush didn't use EOs to change laws.

    I couldn't find any, but i may not be looking in the right places.

    What were the specifics and what were the rulings on these cases?
    I was thinking of the case that went to the Supreme Court regarding Obama's declaration that the Senate was in recess and he could make recess appointments to the labour relations board. The Supreme Court narrowed the executive's power to make such appointments.

    And I respect your point of view even if you don't respect mine. Funny how it's only American liberals who are afraid of opinion outside of their xenophobic circle.

    In any event, hope you're having a fun day too.

    Not exactly, the quandry was a decision as to whether the Senate was really in recess. It didn't change anything about the executive's power, it simply granted legitimacy to a trick the Senate was using to pretend the Senate was not in recess.

    It would help if you knew what you were talking about.

    He's calling turning 'em around at the border as deportations.
    The S.C. already smacked him for his lawlessness.
    Cite the laws Bush changed and we can discuss them.
    Face it. Honest Liberals are nervous about what the King is doing.

    Liar... you opened the post being responded to with a huge indication that you don't respect the point of view or the person.

    In other words, you have nothing to support your assertion. Carry on and have a good day. And yes, I know, you'll claim victory now in the most unflattering of ways.
