The real assault on the Constitution

Forget Obama's pen. The real problem are the thousands of regulations created by unelected civil servants with job security.

The HHS mandate that tries to force Catholics and Evangelicals to pay for abortion inducing chemicals was made by unelected civil servants who cannot be thrown out of office. They can create what are effectively laws while being paid by taxpayers while taxpayers have to spend a fortune and deal with years long legal battles to preserve the freedoms those civil servants are trying to destroy.

That asymmetry means the citizens lose and the governments power grows irrespective of who is elected.
