During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obama’s disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert testified that the consequences of the president’s behavior were potentially grave. He said that the precedent set by Obama could eventually lead to an armed revolt against the federal government.
On Tuesday, Michael Cannon, Cato Institute’s Director of Health Policy Studies, testified before a congressional committee about the dangers of the president’s legal behavior.
“There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restrains that the constitution places on the government,” Cannon said.“Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”
“That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate,” he continued.“If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.”
“That is a very dangerous sort of thing for the president to do, to wantonly ignore the laws,” Cannon concluded,“to try to impose obligation upon people that the legislature did not approve.”

Yeah, remember the French Revolution??? Remember the American Revolution??? If people were smart they would keep voting these lawmakers out over and over until they got the message we are the ones that pay them and we are the ones that vote and we are the people talked about in the DOI and the Preamble. President knows this is a bad law and why he is so set to send us into socialism that didn't work for USSR and is not working for countries overseas now is beyond me.
