Yesterday, Obama did what he has been threatening to do ever since he lost the Hobby Lobby case in the Supreme Court. Yet again, he rewrote Obamacare by executive order to force insurance companies to cover all contraceptives (including those that cause abortions) with no out of pocket cost. How can he do this in light of the ruling? He claims that he is not forcing employers to cover the cost, just the insurance companies. Obama (and many of his sheep) claim that it is no real cost to the insurance companies because they save money in the end. So, who is paying the drug companies for this medicine? It is the same people who are paying for the insurance. Yes, it is all fiscal smoke and mirrors as usual. But that is just the tip of the morally depraved iceberg.
What Obama is essentially doing is telling the Supreme Court that their ruling does not matter. All he has to do is launder the money deep enough, and poof, everything is rainbows and unicorns. I am surprised that he is even trying to hide his contempt, but then again he needs their cover to stuff more of his liberal agenda down everyone’s throats. It does not matter how much he wants to shred the religious freedom clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution.
And that is not the only way he is shredding the Constitution. I seem to remember parts of that fine old document that prohibits the executive branch from making laws and putting all that power into the legislative branch. Then there is that whole separation of powers thing. It is as if Obama does not even care what the Constitution says.
Sadly, in the end, the Constitution is really only a piece of paper. It does not take an amendment to change the Constitution. All it takes is a tyrant with a slim majority of popular support (and maybe not even that). The problem with that view is that you cannot shred the Constitution for other people and expect it to protect your rights and freedom. Either we all agree to abide by the same rules or we delve into chaos. Do we really want to take a giant step back to the age where might makes right and factions killed each other to attain power rather than have peacefully transfers of power via the ballot box. I hope it does not come to that. On the other hand, you cannot take people’s rights away and expect them to peacefully take it forever.
