Obama rules country with an iron fist

Re "Senate Dems see to it that the rules no longer apply" (Viewpoints, Nov. 29): I think that Charles Krauthammer's article concluded in my theory on how the current administration in the White House is running this country with an iron fist. Krauthammer highlighted the surreal instances where President Barrack Obama has blatantly abused the powers that the American people have privileged him with. The president recently did this by enacting an "administration fix" on the new health care law. Congress was set to vote to change this part of the legislation legally the way it the legislative branch was designed to do. Obama vowed to veto it, and, instead, he held a news conference and made the state health insurance commissioners feel obligated to break a federal law and allow cancelled plans to go back on the market. Krauthammer said it best. "Imagine: vetoing the very bill that would legally enact his own illegal fix."
