Now that the House is Republican, probably no radical legislation is going to succeed. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that there are other ways an administration can try to achieve its agenda. We have to be alert to those possibilities:
Last week, some alert observers noticed that the end-of-life provision [a.k.a., death panels] that had to be excised from Obamacare because of the uproar created over the government determining whether or not someone would be allowed to receive treatment, reared its head again on the administrative side, bypassing the Congress.
Once again, Obama officials had to back down, but this is only a temporary change, I’m sure. It will reappear, primarily because the man at the top believes he should have his way regardless of the obstacles:
The largest obstacle he has to overcome, of course, is the Constitution itself, but I don’t think he cares that much about it:
If he doesn’t take the Constitution seriously, we have to provide the balance. Are we too late?
It’s true that we are in dire straits, but the situation is not hopeless. I continue to believe that hope exists.
