March Madness

It seems that the Bracketologist in Chief, in between attending NCAA basketball tournament games and denying the religious liberty of Christian churches and institutions by forcing them to pay for abortions and contraception, took time recently to edit more than his tournament bracket sheet. (See him on ESPN making his March Madness tournament picks.)

It’s not only religious institutions. The Obama administration is whipping the states into his ideological conformity through fiat and declaration, as well. It is more than enough for nine state attorneys general, including Virginia’s Ken Cuccinelli, who recently released a report on the thousands of new regulatory burdens by the administration that do not meet constitutional muster and/or that are outright violations of law. Said Attorney General Cuccinelli at a news conference last week in Washington:

The release of this report — this laundry list of transgressions — confirms that this Administration repeatedly shows disdain for states, for federal laws it finds inconvenient, the Constitution, the courts, and the American people. This has to stop.

This is not about policy. … (It is about) this administration’s disregard for the law. (President Obama and his deputies are) the greatest set of lawbreakers that have run the federal government in our lifetimes. …

The report has gained national attention. Paul Bedard has more in his “Washington Secrets” column in the Washington Examiner, here, and Neil Munro at The Daily Caller covers it, here.

It’s that time of year, again. Time to fill out your brackets or edit your constitution, whichever is giving you more trouble.

  1. […] P.S. I love the very beginning: “Hey everybody! Gather ’round! I’m here to give you anything you like! You want free college, money, mortgages?! Whatever you like!” It’s right out of what those college students’ demands (and this song was written a couple of years ago). Then there’s the line, “. . . throw away the Constitution!” Again, how prescient. See this post from last week. […]
