Does this formally begin Obama's rebellion against the Constitution and the government of the United States?
since the republican controlled mediocre congress refuses to step up and have gun control ownership from citizens, our president had " no choice" but to do the right thing and do his job, republiscums like you are the ones that gave the boot to your ex- presidential candidate WRONGNEY, and then you all ask, why you all keep losing elections, keep your agenda going nitwitts , you all are doing us a favor and the polls in our favor.

A lot of conservatives are now regretting they didn't call Obama's bluff and just go over the cliff.

They would have had him eating out of their hands.

Unfortunately, hindsight is always 20/20.

What mess exactly did Bush leave behind?

The war mess...that Democrats voted for and funded?

The housing market collapse mess...that he warned congress about for years and more democrats than republicans rejected the notion there was even a problem?

The deficit mess...of which Bush's is miniscule compared to Obama's?

The TARP mess...which Obama and democrats supported?

What mess exactly? Please...tell me what mess.

Think it will depend on the severity of his version of gun control.
If he oversteps, his executive order will either be upheld or overturned by the Supreme Court.
But he's definitely pushing the envelope towards totalitarianism.
It's not just gun control. He's threatening to circumvent congress with raising the debt ceiling all by his lonesome.
He can make any law he wants without changing the constitution. For instance if he said you can have guns but then put in enough red tape to make it next to impossible to own one. Then nothing anyone can do to stop him, he is within his rights as the Prez

Were you outraged when G.W. Bush signed 291 executive orders pertaining mostly to spying on possible American citizens without a court order?

That is not how it works. The Insurance companies put the screws to the hospitals and Doctors. None of the Dr or Hospital can just send an insurance company a bill. They first must be enrolled with an insurance company as a provider and the insurance company sets the reimbursement payment. If you do not agree to ALL their prices than you cannot bill them. I've seen IM Meds in office that cost $73.00 and payment be $12.00. I've seen an ointment that cost $7.00 and get paid .04 cents. The insurance companies are as bad if not worst than Medicare and Medicaid as far as payment.
Guess when you have doctors running every test and every scan known to modern medicine whether it's necessary or not just to cover their butts from a malpractice suit, they're going to get paid. You can take it to the bank.

A specialist once admitted to me that doctors do have a "knee jerk reaction" when it comes to over testing and over scanning. It's become an epidemic.

It also seems to take 5 specialists and 2 nurse practitioners to treat one symptom. They either want to spread the accountability around or they all want a piece of the insurance pie.

And all you Obamacare supporters should be aware that more nurse practitioners will be filling the shoes of physicians. That's going on now. Imagine when 3 million more people are waiting in line in front of you.

There also won't be any guarantees they will be the most qualifieid. A warm body with a certificate and any amount of training will have to do.

There aren't enough physicians now. Much less after Obamacare runs off even more of them.

Wrong.

But either way, gun control will kill the Democrat Party.
