When Barack Obama said he had a pen and a phone, he of course meant he didn’t need permission to get any of his Marxist policies to become law. He would do it himself. However, the issue is that we live in a Constitutional Republic, not a constitutional monarchy, or for that matter, a democracy (please stop saying that last one). It means government is established and operates under the consent of the governed and not as a group of people there to serve a government body.
As reported by the Washington Examiner:
“President Obama’s lame duck administration poured on thousands more new regulations in 2016 at a rate of 18 for every new law passed, according to a Friday analysis of his team’s expansion of federal authority.
While Congress passed just 211 laws, Obama’s team issued an accompanying 3,852 new federal regulations, some costing billions of dollars. The 2016 total was the highest annual number of regulations under Obama. Former President Bush issued more in the wake of 9/11.
The proof that it was an overwhelming year for rules and regulations is in the Federal Register, which ended the year Friday by printing a record-setting 97,110 pages, according to the analysis from the Competitive Enterprise Institute. The annual “Unconstitutional Index” from Clyde Wayne Crews, CEI’s vice president for policy, said that it was much higher under Obama than under former President George W. Bush.”
We have a serious problem here, if this is how this supposed Republic is going to run, there is absolutely no need for Congress. Of course that would have been fine with Obama…that’s the way he treated it anyways. We know now that he has passed more laws than Bush.
Obama decided to take on the role of ruler these past eight years (and even did a horrible job at that). Obama demanded to have his policy and agenda accomplished not by legislation, but when Congress did their job and refused, he continued to push through anyways, seeming to feel justified in doing so.
Just a little longer and the guy is gone.
