More importantly, and the one thing I see no one really talking about or complaining about is this. Just as judges cannot legislate from the bench,
Obama cannot legislate through EO's. Here is what I mean, let me explain.
After the Affordable Care Act became law, they discovered, much to their chagrin, they had made a fatal flaw in the law. Yes, all 2200 pages, and they
messed up. If a state opts out of creating their own exchange, they, nor the employers, nor the single person, can be fined for not having insurance.
Now, this may seem off topic, but hear me out. They can't just go back and scribble in the margins, this law, as it stands, has been passed.
It was even announced last week that the IRS has "threatened" that if people refuse to pay thefine, the IRS will come after them. Well, let them.
The law, as it stands, defends them. They have to go back, introduce new law, and go through it ALL AGAIN! How do you think that will go?
Now, how does that affect the gun EO's? Simple. He is trying to do basically the same thing, and scribble in the margins of the healthcare law. He is
legislating from the bench, so to speak. It isn't legal, and won't have standing.
It violates too many rights for exactly what you said, and amounts to illegal search of private records. HIPAA already covers this, and that law
cannot just be thrown aside.
