Sen. Ted Cruz: Obama disregards the law like in ‘dictatorial societies’

Ted Cruz: Obama disregards the law like in ‘dictatorial societies’

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said that President Barack Obama disregards the law and behaves like the leader of “dictatorial societies.”

The conservative senator, who proudly calls himself a “Wacko Bird” to poke fun at establishment Republican criticisms of him, appeared on Fusion TV’s “America with Jorge Ramos” to accuse the president of outright law-breaking — on his own health-care law.

“One of the most disturbing aspects of the Obama presidency is the willingness of this president to disregard the law, to ignore the law,” Cruz said.

“He unilaterally granted an [Obamacare] exemption for big business for one year. The law says big business doesn’t get an exemption and the president just waved his hand and said, ‘I am granting them an exemption.’ He unilaterally granted an exemption for members of Congress. The law says that members Congress have to be on the exchange without subsidies, just like millions of Americans. The president just waved his hand and said, ‘Ignore that part of the law, I don’t want to enforce it,’” Cruz explained.

Cruz specifically said that Obama’s current attempt to try to get health-insurance companies to cover canceled plans for another year is yet another example of Obama ignoring the negative parts of his own law.

“A president under a constitutional system doesn’t have the ability to pick and choose which laws to follow. And that’s the same pattern you see in dictatorial societies, where a leader says, ‘Ignore the law, go with the power of the president instead of the written law.’ That’s not the way our constitution is supposed to work,” Cruz said.

Wild Thing's comment............

Cruz is good man and he truly loves America. He is very smart and also does great at handling those that have attacked him.

I am crossing my fingers for 2014 that we replace some Rinos and Dems with more Cruz Tea Party types. America is a successful nation because it has always followed the Rule of Law. Under obama that rule of law is ignored and we are little more than a third world backwater.
