White House Orders Free Health Tests


Pay close attention to the wording of this New York Times piece -

WASHINGTON — The White House on Wednesday issued new rules requiring health insurance companies to provide free coverage for dozens of screenings, laboratory tests and other types of preventive care.
Did you catch it? The White House issued new rules. By what authority does the White House issue rules concerning matters of law? Or could this be the first of many blatant diktats issued by fiat from a new tyranny? Nahhhh... couldn't possibly. This is a democratic republic, not a dictatorship.

The new provisions were announced Wednesday afternoon by first lady Michelle Obama, Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
Who the hell are Michelle Obama and Jill Biden to be announcing new White House rules? I don't recall anyone voting for them.

Again, in a very small stroke, a bit of our liberty has just been shaved away and nobody noticed.

The enemy is at the gates and within the city. Watch for one another and draw strength from the knowledge that we can lean on each other. Pelosi was right about one thing. There will be blood. Almost has to be.

But only their own imagined authority.

Lord, I'm sick of this power-grabbing administration, an administration with no regard for the limits of our Constitution.
