White House Petition On ACA Deferral

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

I posted a petition on the Whitehouse site on the Obamacare deferral. If the answer interests you, please sign it here. Text is below:

Under what authority does the President think he can defer implementation of the ACA?
The President has recently announced he is delaying implementation of the employer mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), more commonly known as Obamacare. The law, however, states that it is to go into effect in 2014, not later.

Article II, Section 3, of the Constitution states that the president “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” This would seem to state that the President MUST execute the law as written. The petition signers are confused as to what authority gives the President the right to choose not to enforce particular laws.

So the petition signers request that the President explain himself, and detail under what authority he believes he can defer the implementation of a law given Article II Section 3 of the constitution.

 
 

And So It Begins (or ends)…

As part of a deal signed last week in Washington DC between the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and FEMA, Russian officials will provide “security at mass events” in the United States, a scenario that won’t sit well with Americans wary of foreign assets operating on US soil.

According to a press release by the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense and Emergencies, US and Russian officials met on June 25 at the 17th Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations.

In addition to agreeing with FEMA to “exchange experts during joint rescue operations in major disasters,” the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry will also be providing “security at mass events” in the United States.

Yes, the source is Alex Jones. So what?

Lest we forget, from the grievances section of the Declaration of Independence:

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

History repeats, evidently because we stopped teaching it in our schools. Hope and change baby.
