What is going on in this country? Congress passed a law about health care insurance requirements and the president and his czars exempted certain contributors and favorite unions from following the law. Congress passed a health care bill that included a controversial taxpayer-funded abortion provision and the president believes that he has the power to nullify the law with a “presidential directive.” Congress passed immigration laws and the president decided to not enforce them.

And this is supposedly a representative democracy in which our elected Congress makes the laws and the president swears to enforce those laws? What in the world have we allowed to happen to us? What happened to the rule of law in this country? Our Congress has passed laws placed in front of them by their party leaders without having read them. And then they all sit on their hands while the president ignores the new laws. We might as well be ruled by a dictator.
