With the Stroke of a Pen: How Obama abuses executive power to make the law of the land

Posted 10/2/2013

The Washington Examiner is running a series of stories entitled “With the Stroke of a Pen: How Obama abuses executive power to make the law of the land.”

As a backgrounder, here is what the article series is about:

From the Post:

“On Nov. 16, 2010, just days after voters gave Republicans control of the House of Representatives, the progressive think tank Center for American Progress published a report titled “The Power of the President.”

Obama-Biden Transition Project Chairman John Podesta introduced the report, writing that “in the aftermath of this month’s midterm congressional elections, pundits and politicians across the ideological spectrum are focusing on how difficult it will be for President Barack Obama to advance his policy priorities through Congress.”

“Some debate whether the administration should tack to the center and compromise with the new House leadership,” Podesta continued.

“As a former White House chief of staff, I believe those to be the wrong preoccupations. President Obama’s ability to govern the country as chief executive presents an opportunity to demonstrate strength, resolve, and a capacity to get things done,” Podesta said.

Not only did Obama almost immediately embrace the report’s call for maximizing executive power to achieve progressive ends without Congress, it even branded the effort “We Can’t Wait,” thus advertising the fact that Obama had abandoned all pretense of following the U.S. Constitution’s carefully drawn separation-of-powers doctrine.

In this Washington Examiner series, Senior Writer Conn Carroll documents the many times Obama has flagrantly abused executive authority to advance his liberal agenda without congressional approval.

The top 10 instances will be examined over the next two weeks, and more will come later.

Private info released on consumers through Obamacare exchange

from Mary Katherine Ham article

Posted 10/1/2013

An employee of Minnesota’s Obamacare exchange, MNsure, sent an unencrypted file to the wrong person and left 2,400 people’s private information at the mercy of a nearby insurance agent.

One exchange staffer’s simple mistake gave insurance broker Jim Koester access to an Excel document of Social Security numbers, names, addresses and other personal data for whole a list of insurance agents. Luckily for the 2,400, Koester was cooperative — and unnerved.

“The more I thought about it, the more troubled I was,” Koester told the Minnesota Star Tribune. “What if this had fallen into the wrong hands? It’s scary. If this is happening now, how can clients of MNsure be confident their data is safe?” Continue reading

Public-Private Partnerships?

Government has no business in business. By the same token, business has no business in government. These two enterprises have opposite rules, goals and types of people. Business is about making a profit. Government is about spending other people’s money. Those two things define the people in each. Putting those two enterprises under one roof, leads later, if not sooner, to corruption.

What would Reagan do?

‘What Would Reagan Do?’ Videos Launched

Ronald Reagan’s son Michael Reagan is hosting a new series of videos that explore how the 40th president of the United States would deal with today’s issues — “What Would Reagan Do?”

One video focuses on the labor strife pitting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker against the state’s public employees unions, and references how President Reagan handled the strike by air traffic controllers during his administration — he terminated them.

Other videos focus on the unrest in Libya, and the “Federal Pay Gap.” Continue reading

Results of testing government knowledge

The Intercollegiate Studies Institute examines the relationship between higher education, civic knowledge and citizenship. http://www.americancivicliteracy.org/2011/summary_summary.html

It’s interesting to note that college educators have on average only gotten a 55% correct answer rate on the test. Average Americans got only a 49% average correct. Take it, and see how well you can do…

Government Spending

Posted on September 13, 2011 by Sue

from Cathy McMorris-Rodgers

Fact of the Day: From 1999-2010, the U.S. Department of Justice spent $43 million to defend the EPA against lawsuits and paid out $14.2 million in attorneys fees alone from 2003-2010 – 75% of which went to environmental groups.

Too Much Government Spending Results in Too Few Jobs

Posted on November 6, 2011 by Sue

from GOP.gov

In 2009, the White House claimed that if the $1.16 trillion (CBO estimates the cost of the bill will reach $814 billion and interest on the debt for the bill will be at least $347 billion) stimulus was approved, unemployment would not rise above 8 percent. In reality, unemployment is currently 9 percent and has been above 8 percent for 28 months. In the same report, the Obama administration claimed the stimulus would “save or create at least 3 million jobs by the end of 2010.” In fact, a new report by economists Timothy Conley from the University of Western Ontario and Bill Dupor from Ohio State University, found that the President’s failed stimulus “destroyed or forestalled roughly one million private sector jobs.” Instead of creating jobs, the largest stimulus bill in history crowded out private sector growth and cost Americans jobs.
Record spending, deficits, and debt by the Obama administration has created vast uncertainty for job creators and is keeping investors on the sidelines. In 2007, the last year under a Republican budget resolution, the deficit was $160.7 billion or 1.2 percent of GDP and it had decreased every year since 2004. According to President Obama’s FY 2012 budget, the deficit for 2011 will be $1.64 trillion or 10.9 percent of GDP. According to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, this runaway spending will destroy jobs and halt economic growth. Bernanke stated, “Expectations of large and increasing deficits in the future could inhibit current household and business spending—for example, by reducing confidence in the longer-term prospects for the economy or by increasing uncertainty about future tax burdens and government spending—and thus restrain the recovery.” Sadly, the President wants to double-down on our unsustainable path by borrowing $13 trillion over the next decade and spending $5.7 trillion over the next ten years just to pay the interest on borrowed money.

Ecology’s Payroll
