The President Has a Duty to Enforce the Law



 
Obama may be a 'Mere Piker', but this article points out that he has a duty to enforce the law; not modify it with executive orders.

There’s also a grant of "executive power" in Article II, Section 1, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution, as well as a requirement" (in Article II, Section 3, Clause 5) that the executive branch "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed." Executive orders are valid so long as they don’t violate other provisions and rights.


The constitution: "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed."

An executive order to by pass Congress's 'law' is a violation of the constitution, which says: "the executive branch" "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed."
