"Enforce it Vigorously:" Florida Orthodontist Brings Suit to Compel Obama to Enforce ObamaCare as Actually Written, Regarding the Employer Mandate

Love this guy.

Now understand why Obama feels free to ignore Congress: Because he's claimed all the power of Congress in his own person. In a different age, if a President wanted a one-year delay in a law he'd have to go to Congress to have the law changed.

Not Obama. He decided he has the power to freely suspend the law at will.

Now, if he had come to Congress, there would have been negotiations, such as for a one or two year delay for the whole thing.

He decided he didn't feel like doing that so he just assumed Untrammeled Executive Power.

This orthodontist wants him to live with the law as written.

They'll probably dismiss his suit for want of standing -- the Supreme Court's favorite way of enabling a tyrannical government, claiming that individual citizens just don't have the right to demand that the government obey the letter of the Constitution.

I don't know if a few Congressmen joining him would avoid the standing hurdle, but I think they ought to try.

The lawsuit, filed by Dr. Larry Kawa, claims that the regulatory changes violate the Administrative Procedure Act and go beyond President Obama’s constitutional powers.

'He has no more power to do that than your or I,' Kawa told reporters during a press conference Tuesday. 'In fact, he has an affirmative duty to enforce the law, and we are here to make sure that he does that.'

'I've made investments of both time and money, as a law abiding citizen and a local business owner,' he complained, 'to make sure that my business was in compliance with the law. And as soon as I did that this president moved the goal posts.'

'I am tired of government picking winners and losers, victors and victims, and I suggest it ends here today,' Kawa said.

So there he is swearing to actual harm he suffered due to Obama's lawlessness. But I still think the Court will say "No standing."
