If we had a system where POTUS can pick and choose what laws to follow at utter whim … that is seriously dangerous http://t.co/REMxHGgWuc

Speaking Friday morning at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) charged President Obama and his administration with a “consistent pattern of lawlessness.” Cruz singled out the Affordable Care Act as an example; in particular, the administration’s delay of the employer mandate. “Obamacare has single-handedly been an illustration of lawlessness at a breathtaking scale,” said Cruz.
…Cruz warned those with that mindset that they ought to contemplate that their “guy ain’t gonna be there forever. If this president has that power so does the next one and the next one and the next one, and my message to all the Democrats and all the liberals is, what do you think about the next president, maybe a Republican, having the power Barack Obama has as a president who is not bound by the law?”
