Krauthammer’s Take: The Law ‘Exists in Obama’s Head’

The law exists only in President Obama’s head, Charles Krauthammer explained on Special Report tonight. “It’s whatever he thinks. He wakes up in the morning and decides what the law is going to be.”

With the most recent medium-sized employer mandate delay, Obama has now altered parts of the Affordable Care Act almost 30 times. “And remember how Democrats were complaining that when Republicans were trying to overturn Obamacare it was somehow unpatriotic because it was an attack on the law of the land?” Krauthammer said. “This ‘law of the land’ doesn’t even exist. It exists in Obama’s head.”

Even the Washington Post, “not exactly a right-wing rag,” as Krauthammer put it, is saying that Obama has crossed a line. “As an understatement that’s not the way it’s supposed to work,” Krauthammer said.
