Obama On Criticisms Of Delaying Employer Mandate:ĎIím Not Concernedí With Congressí Opinion

When the interviewer, Jackie Calmes, asked Obama if he was acting within his executive power to unilaterally delay the employer mandate, Obama said he wasn't concerned with Congress' opinion on the matter, alluding to the fact that he is a constitutional lawyer.

"If Congress thinks that what Iíve done is inappropriate or wrong in some fashion, theyíre free to make that case," Obama said. "But thereís not an action that I take that you don't have some folks in Congress who say that I'm usurping my authority. Some of those folks think I usurp my authority by having the gall to win the presidency. And I don't think that's a secret. But ultimately, Iím not concerned about their opinions -- very few of them, by the way, are lawyers, much less constitutional lawyers."

take that! and some of this! and some more of that!

the guy is starting to get pretty good at giving back what he's been getting.

ok FOXbots, start the whine fest even though you assholes have done nothing but put him down for 5 years now; and you'll still act like Obama has no right to throw it back at anyone else.

but at this point...i wouldn't know how to act if you nutjobs didn't do your hypocrisy dance. it's the culture.

How about we look at some numbers.
316 million total population.
86.4 million under 20.
40.5 million over 65.
1.6 million disabled.
21 million in universities.
130 million full time jobs.
8.2 million part time jobs.
The ratio of full time to part time jobs is 15.8.
Your economic recovery is creating 5 times as many part time jobs as full time jobs.
The real percentage of people available for work but not working is 17 percent.
The annual deficit is 1.3 trillioin, down from 1.6 trillion it grew to before the TEA Party came to Congress in 2011.
The total debt is 17 trillion. The US economy is only 15 trillion.
The debt grows at 8 percent each year, while the calculated economic growth is only 2 percent. The real (private) economy that actually pays for everything is stagnant, and is only about 12 trillion.
So, the debt is one and a half times as big as what pays it.
And, the debt grows at almost 8 percent a year.
A stagnant economy has to pay a debt that is one and a half times its size and grows at 8 percent every year.
An idiot can tell you this system will collapse. What we need to do to fix it is to stop borrowing money. That is the 1.3 trillion dollars every year.
So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

That statement directly conflicts with the Constitution.

The establishment is getting nervous ... good:

"As a former prosecutor who was appointed by President George W. Bush on Sept. 10, 2001, I just want us to be really cautious, because this strain of libertarianism that's going through both parties right now and making big headlines, I think, is a very dangerous thought," Christie said.

Wrong again dumbass! When the government When the government funds something like road or bridge repair projects it employs private sector contractors and workers to do the job. That money goes right back into the economy.
Government jobs are " do nothing" jobs? Really? Tell that to a cop, a firefighter, a teacher, a park ranger, a member of our armed forces. Every one of these employees even the so called "paper pushers" cash their paychecks and pay their rent or mortgage, buy groceries and otherwise spend their money putting it into the economy. The real "do nothing" job holder in government are in the GOP controlled House who waste $1.5 million every time they vote on a piece ideological legislation that they know isn't going anywhere instead of doing something that will benefit the economy.
You're an idiot Galt.
The government funded enough infrastructure rebuilding to rebuild the entire infrastructure of the United States with your Porkulus.
What happened to all that money?
What idiot do you think will believe the same bullshit again this time?

How about this:
No more debt. Not for any reason. When any agency or department expends the money appropriated to it, shut it down until there is more money to appropriate.
Put the squeeze on them and we just might begin to get what we're paying for.

This too from the same article:

When it comes to foreign policy, war, assassinations, drones, surveillance, secrecy, and civil liberties, President Obama's most stalwart, enthusiastic defenders are often found among the most radical precincts of the Republican Party.

A full time job is a living wage.
A part time job is poverty.
The ratio of full time to part time jobs is about 15:1.
This "recovery" is generating 5 times as many part time jobs as full time jobs.
In short, for every one person the "recovery" is helping support themself, it is putting 5 people in poverty.

<quoted text> Typical Flack, as he says that that the 750,000 jobs lost in January were Obama's fault.
Really, how pathetic can you get., Flack. This is the problem with you right whiners & why you people are so pathetic. You can't even admit the recession & economic collapse was well in progress when Obama walked in the door & the downward slide started to end in just a month after the Stimulus Bill was passed.
You people can't even blame a single Republican. Not Bush, Not Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, Cantor all there supporting the policies that led us down that path.
"OMG OMG Omg we need a balanced budget!! "Spend within our means" OMG OMG "
But when its all said & done, you GD idiots still support the party that took us from your precious balanced budget to the wort recession in 80 years.
And Flack, don;y you dare pretend you are not a right whiner & support Republican candidates.
Well, I've voted for far more democrats than Republicans so there goes that theory. The economy started tanking once employers realize the democrats woulds control Congress And went further down hill when Obama announced he was running for president. When it became apparent that he was going to win all the deadwood was let go and all non-critical spending was curtailed. We are still in this pattern and will be for 3 1/2 more years. Maybe a little less depending on who the candidates might be. You can this isn't true but you will be lying to yourself. My boss at the time and every customer I delivered to all said and did the same thing. Spread that across the nation and there you go! I don't think Hampton Roads ever went above 7% unemployment. I could be wrong and I'm sure some one will say if I am.

<quoted text> How much was the Stimulus bill? Look it up Galt & let me know.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, the true 10 year cost of the stimulus bill $2.527 trillion in spending with another $744 billion cost in debt servicing.

How about this:
No more debt. Not for any reason. When any agency of department expends all the money appropriated, shut it down until there is money in the Treasury to appropriate.
What's wrong with this idea?
