Bush attorney general disappoints Hannity: Obama’s executive orders are legal
Former Bush Attorney General Michael Mukasey appeared on the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” Wednesday night with a message that left the host looking rather disappointed.
Rebutting the Republican talk show host, Mukasey said that President Barack Obama’s executive orders so far have been legal, as much as he finds them distasteful. He even expressed agreement with the Supreme Court’s finding that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional, leaving Hannity looking perplexed.
Speaking about the president’s most significant executive actions thus far, Hannity exclaimed:“It seems me to be, by definition, abuse of power. A power grab if you will… Is it then unconstitutional in some instances?”
“I don’t think it’s unconstitutional in the sense that I don’t think it’s something you could get a court to find unconstitutional,” Mukasey replied.“We could have a debate about whether it’s consistent with the constitution or not, but there is a limited number of things that will get you into court to have that decided, and I don’t think any of the things you’ve enumerated are among them.”

I was sure about this, but I reread my post just to make sure. I didn't ask you what some talking head politician said. I asked you to explain your position that some text in some legislation has a higher authority than the Constitution.

Now, let's try this again and see if you don't run away again:

Your argument reads:
"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.
The Constitution says:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
So, if your argument is against what is written in the Constitution, which is right?

In the United States, some 5.8 million Americans can’t vote because they have a current or previous felony conviction — more than the individual populations of 31 U.S. states. That figure includes one in 13 African American adults. In Florida, Kentucky, and Virginia, one in five African Americans are barred by these felon disenfranchisement policies, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday.
Citing these figures and many others, Holder called out state laws that block ex-felons from voting as a vestige of Reconstruction-era voter suppression, and called for for states to repeal every law that prohibits those who have completed their sentence from voting. Holder’s address Tuesday morning at a criminal justice reform symposium is the latest in his “Smart on Crime” initiative that has included scaled back prosecution of crimes with mandatory minimum sentences, less targeting of those complying with state marijuana laws, diversion out of prison and improvement of offender re-entry, and a move to cut short the sentences of some drug offenders.
He noted that these laws are part of a U.S. history of discriminatory voter suppression “too often based on exclusion, animus, and fear.” After Reconstruction, when Southern states were passing felon disenfranchisement measures just as slaves were being freed, 90 percent of the Southern prison population was black, Holder said.
In Florida — one of 11 states that continue to restrict voting rights even after a person has completed probation or other terms of a sentence — ten percent of the state’s population is disenfranchised by felony voting policies.

The Constitution states that a person's rights can be voided by due process of law. Being convicted of a felony is due process of law, moron. Each state can make its own determination on how to procede after that due process of law.
Got a problem with the Constitution?

It only sets minimums.

To get rid of pe-existing conditions, you need a mandate

If you have a mandate for coverage, then you must define what is considered minimum coverage.

So Thompson took action. He forked over $465 of his own money and zeroed out the balances on over 60 students’ accounts.

Nice!
When I was a little sprout, school lunches were about 20 cents and a little bottle of milk was 3 cents. We paid cash and those who forgot or lost their money would go on a list and could bring the money in later.

But but but__these days parents purchase lunches by the month and those with two or three kids have a good sized bill each month, maybe $80,$90 or more in some areas.

I only bought lunch on Fridays, macaroni and cheese with fish sticks. We all honored meatless Fridays and no one btched__what kid doesn't like macaroni and cheese with fish sticks?

Call it ObamaKare, dupe. Didn't you hear Obama tell you he likes for you to call it ObamaKare?

ObamaKare. There's nothing affordable about it for anyone who works for a living.

ObamaKare allows insurance companies to cancel existing policies, then creates exchanges the insurance companies can join where the people with the cancelled policies are forced to buy virtually the same policy from these same companies at a much higher price price and much higher deductible.

What's so difficult to understand about that?

Let's talk about the certainty of the government bailing out those same insurance companies and taking control of all health care, and then "The Secretary will determine...." everything without any standard of specification to conform to.

ObamaKare Death Panel: "We're sorry, Mr. Smith. The Secretary has determined your life isn't funded for next year because some crackwhore needs an abortion."

Refer to my post with the specifics on how "the Secretary" is commanded to make all determinations at their political whim without any specification written into ObamaKare to dictate what requirements "the Secretary" must conform to.
Let's go over this again.
Congress, nor any law, has the authority to allow anyone to violate the Constitution. This is because the Constitution has higher authority than anything... ANYTHING... in the country. Period. End of statement. End of discussion.
Unless you are rebelling against the constitutional republic. Then, I guess we'll have to fight about that.
The thread was about your statements regarding the ACA.

Try to keep up.

My God to think my tax money is being wasted subsidizing a fool like you.

You said the ACA gave Sebelius the power to decide everything regarding the ACA.

That is not against the Constitution.

Just heard today from our corporate office in Peoria that Caterpillar is going to start laying off union workers due to uncertainty of obamacare. We'll be giving walking papers to union workers by March. Approx 75-100 per factory to start. Its going to be quite a smack in the face for the idiots who all "wanted change". Guess that's all they will be left with......change!
