Letter to the editor: 'I have a pen'

Wednesday, January 29, 2014 - 12:01 am

President Obama’s executive orders modifying Obamacare is like playing a one-on-one basketball game with the school bully.

Every time he misses a shot, he claims do over: “I tripped,” “my shoelace was untied,” “the wind blew,” “the sun was in my eyes.”

Every time some element of this ill-conceived, unread, forced-down-our-throats law bumps into reality the bully in the White House takes out his executive pen and modifies, exempts, delays or simply changes the rules to appease his buddies, ease the re-election of his party members and avoid political embarrassment.

What a guy! Who died and made him king?
