Rogue Obama Continues To Act Without Congressional Authorization
A law unto himself
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said President Barack Obama will “continue” to act “administratively” without congressional authorization to “benefit the American people” as part of the White House’s “We Can’t Wait” campaign.
“He [Obama] fully understands that the kinds of things that are contained within the American Jobs Act require congressional action, require laws being passed, and that’s why he’s pressing for Congress to take action legislatively,” Carney told reporters on Monday at the White House.
“But he can also act independently or, rather, administratively, and exercise his executive authority to benefit the American people in other ways. And he will continue to do that.”
Carney dismissed House Speaker John Boehner’s disapproval of the president acting unilaterally. (RELATED: Boehner blasts Obama on economy: Sidestepping Congress is ‘laughable’)
“I was asked about this concern, which I would just suggest is misplaced, because the president is acting well within his authority, well within his constitutional authority,” Carney said.
“He is simply acting to help the American people, whether it’s with their mortgages, their student loans, their access to vital drugs, assisting businesses to speed up the process by which they get a, you know, contracts, with their payments from the federal government. These are all measures he can take administratively, and he will continue to take them.”
Carney also said Boehner “could certainly assist in the effort by allowing the provisions of the American Jobs Act, for example, to be voted on by the House of Representatives.” source – Daily Caller

Barack Hussein Obama is public enemy #1 of the American people. Obama knew you would not keep your health plan, Obama knew your premiums would skyrocket, Obama was well aware of all the falsehoods and pitfalls of his master scheme to defraud America. He does not need to be brought up on charges of treason, he needs to be escorted out of the White House under armed guard and taken to Gitmo for incarceration.

The Boston Marathon bombings from last year were used as a thinly-veiled excuse to run a test trial of imposed martial law for a 24-hour period. The test was very successful. America’s next big war will be right at home, a civil war between the government and governed. Are you ready for what comes next?
