Now that’s a good question.

Via the Puppy Blender, I was just asking myself the same question yesterday.

Are Obamacare waivers Constitutional?

I know Obama can pardon people, but can he also say “Go ahead and break the law”?

Seriously, isn’t that what non-US-Constitution countries do? Aren’t we a nation of laws?

Can he give out waivers for murder, barratry and loitering too?

I know he can pardon you afterward, but how is it legal to say, “Go ahead and break the law that we all declared to be the Most Important Thing Ever or We Were All Gonna Die!“?

I’m blaming more and more on Minitru, if Bush had given a waiver to his “cronies” on some stupid oil-drilling red-tape-act law he would have been viciously attacked and we would still be hearing about. There would have been hearings and the ICC would have issued an arrest warrant and all the right people would have been Outraged!.

But when the God-President does it? Zzzzzzzz, uhhhh… Look! Sarah Palin said we should invade the Soviet Union!

Another point, wouldn’t that make it so you can argue the law is invalid as it is not enforced equally?

When did we become such a banana state that the question didn’t even occur to anybody for months? (I don’t recall anybody saying it, but that could just mean it was posted here).

Update Fixed the “Oi-drillingl” problem.

    See what happens when you stop drinking? The funny starts getting all endy an you wonder why no-one else has noticed. Of course, the Minitru is all “see no evil, hear no evil” but is the dextrosphere silent because “media silent on Obama Administration malfeasance” is a “dog bites man” story or has the lack of oxygen been effective? By then your head is hurting and you wonder what possessed you to sober up in the first place!

    I guess I picked a wrong end of civilization to give up sniffing glue.

    Silly blogger, theequal protection clause guarantees gay marriage, not uniformity of law.

    On the second day of my Presidency, i intend to grant waivers to all american oil companies so they can ignore all environmental protection laws. Add a condition that the oil must remain within our borders and never hit the world market and gasoline will be .85 cents a gallon by month number six, just in time to avoid my impeachment.

    Waivers and Pardons, ’cause they wouldn’t give me all that power unless i was meant to abuse it.
