Role of the Executive

I was amused today when AG William Barr was, in effect, being chastised by a congresswoman for the DoJ’s failure to defend what remains of Obamacare. I interpret the POTUS oath of office to say ‘faithfully execute the office (I take to mean including the statutory law) and preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution’.  Looks like DoJ is doing all of that.

    Who was the congresswoman? Do you have a link?

    Nita Lowey, N.Y., I don’t have a link. She just seemed to be really puzzled regarding why the DoJ was not defending Obamacare in court.

    I don’t share her puzzlement.  Obamacare at this point is a scab that will never simply fall off.  Whoever rips it off will be unpopular with the press.  Duh.

  3. Dems no longer have any consistent principles, like say, defending existing laws in court. They also have convenient memories. Remember the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)? The Obama justice department refused to defend it in court. Since outcomes and not principles matter to Dems, this particular refusal to defend a duly-enacted law won progressive praise.

    One of the main difficulties, I find, in present day American life is the rolling rational incoherence and cognitive dissonance emanating from the left. The mental contortions demanded to further their increasingly-radical Marxist agenda has eliminated even the slightest desire to engage in some civil discourse with them. There is no longer any point.
