    Taller than Kobe Bryant. Who knew it would take so many rules and regulations just to get those 30 million uninsured health insurance?

    The question i have is when the law needs to be amended, and it will need to be as most do.

    Does Obama start out by saying " I will not negotiate" this needs to be done?

    Or will he keep doing what he is doing, amending it by fiat?

    Oh he'll just continue changing and not enforcing whatever law he doesn't like or agree with. icon_wink.gif

    Noooooooooo. By what he's already done, for example, declaring the Senate "Out of Session" so he could appoint NLRB hacks to fill available positions without the Senate's approval.

    By declaring he won't enforce and uphold aspects of immigration law.

    No scurry away and find instances of "when Bush did it" to try and change the topic from OUR (not YOUR) current President.

    Presidents have always decided which laws they will and will not enforce. It became known under President Buchanan as the policy of Presidential Disregard. Lincoln's Attorney General opined that the President had this authority. Since 1926, Myers vs. the United States, the Supreme Court has ruled more than once that Presidents may act contrary to what a law requires.

    Historically, take the following examples (not in date order): President Adams (the first, not his son, also President Adams), he refused to bring the Army up to the manpower level required by Congress. President Jefferson refused to purchase the gunboats authorized by Congress. He also instructed Federal prosecutors to ignore the Alien and Sedition Act before it was repealed. President Kennedy refused to enforce and defend "separate but equal" laws. Eisenhower, in signing the Mutual Security Act of 1959 stated there were provisions he would not comply with. Reagan issued an executive order that he would not enforce laws he thought were not constitutional. Harding and Coolidge refused to enforce parts of the Volstead Act. Presidents Jackson, Tyler, Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, Wilson and Ford also refused to enforce some statutory requirements. And actually this is a partial list.

    All of a sudden, however, when Obama does something that has been a practice for over 200 years it becomes a problem - a bit of a double standard perhaps?

    While a nice picture, I doubt its veracity. With multiple agencies putting forth rules, I doubt they have been centralized at this time. Looking at the Federal Register makes me further doubt its veracity.

    Produce your own evidence, otherwise your conjecture is simply rambling musings.

    You reference a blog from May of 2013 - almost 6 months ago. And even your reference presents no refutation of the 20,000 pages number. And, since May of 2013 the bureaucrats have been quite busy writing even MORE Obamacare rules and regulations.
