The Constitutionality of the ObamaCare "Fix" | The Volokh ConspiracyThe Volokh Conspiracy

The “fix” amounts to new legislation – but enacted without Congress. The President has no constitutional authority to rewrite statutes, especially in ways that impose new obligations on people, and that is what the fix seems to entail. And of course, this is not the first such extra-statutory suspension of key ObamaCare provisions.

May I just make it clear that my self-denying ordinance, to wit that I would never give Americans any advice about health care save for "Don't copy the NHS", does not extend to my denying myself the opportunity to laugh in derisive half-disbelief at the latest healthcare imbroglio.

It's international entertainment, reminiscent of those Monty Python sketches that are simultaneously absurd, funny, and painful.
