A nation of laws

Published: Wednesday, Jul. 16, 2014 - 3:07 pm

When referring to the United States of America, the words, "We are a nation of laws" have been spoken and written for many years for various reasons. The President of the United States has broken the law when he changed parts of the Affordable Health Care Act without approval of Congress. It seems that this breaking of the law by the president is being ignored by congress. If that is so, what is to stop the president from breaking more laws without becoming subject to a legal process? Do the words "We are a nation of laws" mean anything to Congress? Or should we just sweep this illegal act of the president under an imaginary carpet? If nothing is done, how can we then say " We are a nation of laws"?
