To Obama, some laws are optional

The move by President Obama to postpone implementation of the employer mandate until after the 2014 elections is no surprise.

He knows that once people see how the law affects them they will vote against those who voted for the “Affordable Care Act.”

The most important aspect of this action is the action itself. The President unilaterally decided not to implement an aspect of a law until he thought it would be appropriate.

This behavior is the biggest obstacle to immigration reform. We conservatives want the border closed to future illegals. We want to end this problem.

The Senate bill includes many ways to accomplish this. But we are afraid Mr. Obama would decide not to carry through, for political purposes, on this aspect of the bill.

Do you all now see why we have this concern?
