Emperor Obama Bypasses Congress Again

When will the Republicans stand up to this blatantly unconstitutional behavior?

Next week, the Obama administration is planning to unveil a climate action plan that it intends to implement without legislative approval. It’s a creative approach to governing, not unlike other executive actions President Obama has taken to bypass Congress.

When lawmakers refused to pass cap-and-trade legislation, Obama announced there was more than one way to skin the cat. Through climate plans, executive orders and regulatory action, he directed his agencies to find ways to curb the country’s carbon dioxide output and commit to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.

Leading the charge, unsurprisingly, is the Environmental Protection Agency, which will release its carbon-dioxide regulations for existing power plants on Monday. The plan will drive up energy prices for American families and businesses without making a dent in global temperatures.

Our infographic explains what it means for jobs, incomes and the states hurt most.

EPA cap and trade regulation

This isn’t the way it works here in America.  We don’t have an Emperor or King who gets to simply use a pen to change anything he wants.  It doesn’t matter which party is doing this, it simply cannot be allowed.  When a leader can change policy and re-write law at his every whim by bypassing the proper legislative process, we are left with lawlessness and tyranny.  Who in Washington will stand up against this and make some noise to inform the public?

Anyone?  Anyone…?

There’s my two cents.
