The San Mateo Daily Journal Other voices item “Obama’s actions on ACA” by the Bowling Green, Ky., Daily News in the Feb. 24 edition was right on. There are so many flagrant violations of the Constitution by this president it is difficult to keep track. There is no doubt that this unpopular law was ill-conceived and implemented by incompetent bureaucrats. But what could we expect when not one Democrat lawmaker who voted for the law actually read it? So, now we have a chief executive who has given up on the responsible task of governing in lieu of issuing arbitrary and unconstitutional orders in a futile attempt to “save” his only legislative victory.
Mr. Obama lost the respect of foreign leaders long ago. The polls now show that he has lost the respect of most of this country’s voters. Unfortunately, the country has to endure almost three more years of this presidency.
