Here is a list of some of the unconstitutional actions
of President Barack Obama.
- You signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. But now
we can see that the administration's trillion-dollar stimulus plan
clearly is not working. Both the Constitution and history are
witnesses that testify that the Stimulus Plan is both a federal
usurpation of power and economically misguided. It may very well
cause another "catastrophe." You promised that this plan would
create jobs immediately and keep the unemployment rate below eight
percent. We are now at about 9.5% without including those who are
no longer counted due to the length of their unemployment.
Americans are asking, "Where are the jobs?" With 14.6 million
people officially jobless, 5.9 million who have stopped looking
but say they want a job, and 8.5 million who are working part time
but would like to work full time, you end up with nearly 30
million Americans who cannot find the work they want and
desperately need. The ARRA is primarily designed not to stimulate
the economy, but to build the size and scope of government.
Government spending plans do not stimulate the economy. They are
based on the idea that feeding "new" money into the economy will
create economic growth. But the money isn't new—it's either taxed
or borrowed. It's essentially redistributed from one group of
people to another, and no new money is created. And also, State
governors, looking down the gun barrel of long-term spending
forced on them by your "stimulus" plan, are saying they will
refuse to take the money. This is a Constitutional confrontation
between the federal government and the states unlike any in our
- You signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into
law. The federal government is now forcing Americans to buy health
insurance. Even with the disapproval of the American majority you
pushed through what we call "Obamacare." Over 20 states are now
suing the federal government over your health care reform law.
This law began the process to socialize America's health care
system. It forces Americans to buy health insurance from a private
company against our will.
- You appointed over thirty Czars without any Congressional
oversight to control every aspect of the country.
- You intervened in the troubled automotive industry, renewing
loans for General Motors and Chrysler Corporation to continue
operations while reorganizing. Over the following months the White
House set terms for both firms' bankruptcies, including
reorganization of GM giving the U.S. government a temporary 60%
equity stake in the company. Where in the Constitution does it say
the government can do that?
- You signed into law the popular Car Allowance Rebate System,
known popularly as "Cash for Clunkers." In the middle of our
country's worst financial crisis you give out freebees with
- You used your executive powers to shakedown British Petroleum
after the oil leak catastrophe in the Gulf to create the
$20-billion escrow (slush!) fund without any law, legal controls,
or binding rules to guide it on how and how much those injured
materially by the oil spill (and whom among them) will be paid.
- You believe that the Constitution is a living, breathing
document. I thought that the only way to change the Constitution
was to amend it? It's not all your fault, Mr. President. If
Congress and the Supreme Court did their job properly you would
have been checked and balanced.
