There is a difference between laws and rules. There can not be an exemption to a law. The village chief can exempt anyone he wants from a rule.
There is no such thng as the rule of law in the United States anymore. That is one of the fundamental changes Obama and the Democrats brought with them to power.
Do you have an argument disputing this statement?
your whining about what others have already done before doesn't impress.

it was the same when Bush was in office. the repeated attacks of the same tactics that he used would lead one to believe that you just don't like having a Black President.

which, btw, is about as good as it gets for a progressive. they haven't stopped giggling since the little meeting the GOP had the day Obama was sworn in. watching the extreme denial of a legitimate presidency has been an uber hoot.......and You are the poster child.

so, really....lol. and...some more lol.

In one post you claim Congress gave Sebelius the power to change everything in the ACA & then in your next post you claim Obama can't change the ACA.

What?
You're just making stuff up now. Congress doesn't have the authority to give anyone the power to rewrite any law. Read the Constitution if you need clarification on this.

The GOP’s Dead-End Executive Order Freakout

Republicans have tried to whip up a frenzy about Obama’s threat to use executive orders. But he’s used lots fewer than most presidents, and the public wants a president who takes action.

In other words, Republicans can say what they will about the president, but it’s ridiculous to denounce Obama for the use of executive orders if you’re comparing him to other presidents.

Which is to say that this is less about his actions, and more about how they stand as a rebuke to the last three years of GOP behavior. Since taking control of the House in 2011, Republicans have committed themselves to blockading as much of the administration as possible. They’ve filibustered nominees, blocked appointments, and killed legislation, regardless of whether they stood with on the merits. Their only concern—their only goal—was to damage Obama’s credibility and keep the White House from scoring any points.

They weren’t unsuccessful—Obama’s approval rating is at a relative low for his term—but they didn’t win either (he’s still president). And while they benefitted from several administration missteps, including the botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act, it’s also true that, overall, their party is underwater with a public that craves action.

Obama’s executive actions are a response to public concern, and one that Republicans can’t match, on account of their paltry agenda. Instead, the plan is to snipe at the president’s proposal—to paint it as unconstitutional—in hopes that they can tarnish the attempt and keep Obama from salvaging his job approval.

I’m sure it will energize Republican partisans. As for the large majority of Americans who liked what they heard from the State of the Union? That’s a different question.

dance around this....

Most of NSA’s data collection authorized by order Ronald Reagan issued

Confusing though it may be, the order remains the primary authority under which the country’s intelligence agencies conduct the majority of their operations.

Neither the office of Attorney General Eric Holder nor that of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper would comment about 12333.

Under its provisions, agencies have the ability to function outside the confines of a warrant or court order, if approved by the attorney general. Its Section 2.5 effectively gives the attorney general the right to authorize intelligence agencies to operate outside the confines of judicial or congressional oversight, so long as it’s in pursuit of foreign intelligence – including collecting information of Americans.

“The Attorney General hereby is delegated the power to approve the use for intelligence purposes, within the United States or against a United States person abroad, of any technique for which a warrant would be required,” 12333 reads.

Monitoring the actual content of Americans’ communications still requires a warrant under 12333, but metadata – the hidden information about a communication that tells where a person is, who he’s communicating with, even the number of credit cards used in a transaction – can be swept up without congressional or court approval.

The impact of 12333 is enormous – and largely unknown. Documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden suggest that less than half of the metadata the NSA has collected has been acquired under provisions of the USA Patriot Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the two laws that have received the most attention for permitting NSA programs.

Gen. Keith Alexander, the NSA director, has ratified that impression, saying that the majority of NSA data is collected “solely pursuant to the authorities provided by Executive Order 12333.”

Judge: NSA warrantless wiretapping unconstitutional

President Bush's warrantless surveillance program is unconstitutional because it authorizes illegal searches, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

"There are no hereditary kings in America and no powers not created by the Constitution," wrote U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in Detroit.

The plaintiffs and the government agreed to a temporary stay of the decision until a Sept. 7 hearing, while the Bush administration vowed to appeal.

"We couldn't disagree more with this ruling," White House spokesman Tony Snow said.

Dumbwaiter a couple of posts ago: "If you read the text to ObamaKare, you'll see where it states specifically "The Secretary will determine...." everything. "

Dumbwaiter above: "Congress doesn't have the authority to give anyone the power to rewrite any law."

So, did or did not Congress give Sebelius authority to make changes or not.

Now, why would anyone object to a president acting like he's a dictator and circumventing Congress in violation of the Constitution?
Congress doesn't have the authority to grant the president the liberty to write his own laws, dumbass. Read the Constitution if you're confused about this.
Sebilius only determines what to pay and what not to pay. As the ObamaKare law states "The Secretary will determine...." everything.
After 'health,' the most frequently used word in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is neither “patient” nor 'physician' nor 'hospital' nor 'insurance.'Secretary,' as in 'the secretary of health and human services,' is mentioned more than 2,500 times in the 2,300-page bill. And more than 700 times, the PPACA says 'the secretary shall....' determine everything.
There is nothing written ObamaKare as a specification dictating in accordance with what the Secretary shall make the determinations. It's completely, 100 percent by the political whim of the Secretary.
As written, the Secretary can select a single case and deny payment, if the Secretary so chooses. Or, the Secretary can establish their own criteria for payment of services. Related to the referenced case, the Secretary determined that person would not receive health care.
It's just like this:
ObamaKare Death Panel: "We're sorry, Mr. Smith. Your life isn't funded for next year because some crackwhore needs an abortion."
http://www.texmed.org/Template.aspx...
But you aid the ACA gave the Secretary the authority to determine everything.

Were you lying??

And what does your wife needing an abortion have to do with anything?
Yeah

You idiot. Your dumbass posts show the rich are getting richer while the middle class & poor stagnate or lose ground.
This is redistribution of wealth that has been happening for decades.
It has to do with the wealthy people buying more & more control of Congress that then pass legislation favorable to their wants.
I would think that people who claim to want small government with a voice in that government would be against this redistribution.
But no, you people are too f*cking stupid & continue to support handing money to the wealthy in hopes they drop some crumbs for you.
ObamaKKKarre is wealth redistribution from the middle class to the poor...

What's going on in Syria? This has been predicted since Obama began arming the Al Qaeda invasion of Syria. Doesn't anyone wonder why all the so-called "news" networks are hiding this fact from you? They're still saying ludicrous things like "rebels" and "civil war" when they talk about Syria. There is no Syrian rebel army anymore. Obama is sending arms to Al Qaeda, just as he has always done.
The final bankruptcy of American policy in Syria came 10 days ago as Islamic Front, a Saudi-backed Sunni jihadi group, overran the headquarters of the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) at Bab al-Hawa on the Syrian side of the border with Turkey. The FSA, along with the Syrian National Coalition, groups that the United States have been pretending for years are at the heart of Syrian military and political opposition, has been discredited. The remaining FSA fighters are in flight, have changed sides, or are devoting all their efforts to surviving the onslaught from jihadi or al-Qa’ida-linked brigades.
So, how many people heard our network liars say something like "civil war in Syria" since Al Qaeda eliminated the last real Syrian rebel army 10 days ago?
And you still listen to anything they say?
the Obama news media has imposed a complete blackout on news of the Obama disaster in Syria.....

watch foreign news services to learn the truth....
