Obama’s first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of “transforming America” in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. – American Thinker

During the first two years ….. a myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred virtually unlimited power to the executive branch.
The birth of multi-thousand page laws was not an aberration. This tactic was adopted so the bureaucracy controlled by Obama appointees would have sole discretion in interpreting vaguely written laws ….
in the 2,700 pages of ObamaCare there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services…. more than 700 instances when …. they “shall” do something and more than 200 times when they “may” take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the “Secretary determines.”
The same is true in the 2,319 pages of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act …
[EPA] on a near daily basis issues new regulations clearly out of their purview in order to modify and change environmental laws previously passed and to impose a radical green agenda never approved by Congress. The same is true of the Energy and Interior Departments among many others.
Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers will be unchallenged as they run roughshod over the American people.
