By invoking executive privilege, President Obama has changed the welfare to work program that had been a rousing success and enabled many people to improve the quality of their lives. What Mr. Obama has done is unconstitutional and should be immediately overturned.
This is just the latest example — the "Fast and Furious" cover-up, fighting states that want to have an "honest" election, etc. — of this administration's disregard and contempt for America. The economy is in the tank and well over 23 million Americans are either unemployed or underemployed.
Citizens who dumbly accept and don't object to what is happening are doomed to accept the eventual disastrous consequences, including continued high unemployment, unsustainable and irresponsible federal spending, excessive rules and regulations for businesses and the monstrosity of "Obamacare," all of which are already happening.
