Obama Is a Big-Time Law Violator

Nine State Attorneys General have issued an important document setting forth 21 specific violations of law by the Obama Administration. Here are several examples of what these Attorneys General call "violations of law" by "an increasingly overreaching federal government." Most of them show the Obama Administration using administrative agencies to enforce policy objectives that are outside the law and would not be approved by Congress.

In Florida, the Environmental Protection Agency imposed its own unscientific criteria, which would cost billions of dollars for compliance and the loss of thousands of jobs. A federal court found that the Environmental Protection Agency had violated the law because its rules were not based on sound science. In South Carolina, the National Labor Relations Board tried to tell Boeing, a private company, where it could or could not locate a new manufacturing plant, and also threatened to sue the state for guaranteeing a secret ballot in union elections. The NLRB finally backed down after a high-profile battle.

In Arizona, the Obama Administration is trying to nullify a referendum passed by the voters requiring individuals registering to vote to show a driver's license or other government-issued document as evidence they are citizens. This case is now appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Health and Human Services Agency mandated that religious employers, including Catholic, Baptist and Jewish schools, churches and hospitals, to provide all their employees with medical devices prohibited by their religion. Since many are self-insurers, Obama's subsequent "accommodation" reinforced this attack on religious liberty, so seven Attorneys General have filed suit to cancel this anti-religious-liberty mandate. Tomorrow I'll give you more examples of the Obama Administration's unconstitutional actions as listed by nine state Attorneys General.
