King Obama to Congress: “write the legislation I want, or else I will simply enact it by decree” – Atlas Shrugs

Ok, if this happens can we FINALLY start working on impeaching him?  He is now bypassing the Congress and forcing his cap-and-trade requirements without legislation.

To explain in summary, because there is such strong opposition to his “Cap-And-Trade” tax that it probably will not pass, Obama has decided to order the EPA to enforce it anyway.  As justification for doing this, he is using the Clear Air Act, which does not cover any of the rules he is putting in place.

This is a blatant bypassing of the checks and balances of the Constitution.  The president is granting himself powers beyond what the existing acts allow.  Chavez did this sort of thing, not a US President.

It looks like President Obama, facing the failure of his domestic agenda in Congress, is now going to attempt to pull out a victory by threatening Congress with the usurpation of its legislative powers. How? The administration has announced plans to impose sweeping controls on emissions of carbon dioxide by executive fiat, through the EPA, bypassing the legislature altogether.

As I warned early this year,

Under what system of government does the chief executive say to the legislature, in effect, “write the legislation I want, or else I will simply enact it by decree”? The answer: not under a system of representative government and the separation of powers. Barack Obama is proposing to govern, not in the manner of an American president, but in the manner traditionally sought by leftist strongmen like Hugo Chavez.

We’ve now arrived at that point. This is another step toward the Obama Banana Republic.
