ICE Agents sue Uncle Janet Napolitano, so HHS employees should sue Kathleen Sebelius

We are a Nation of Laws not Men

I was reading an Ann Coulter retort in the The Daily Caller about how all the liberal ‘Fact Checkers’ mad a pretty lame attempt to say that Mitt Romney’s claim about how Obama and Sebelius ending the work requirement was false.  But in fact they have pushed around the law to allow for more people to take part in welfare without having to work.

As Kaus explains, HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius has interpreted the welfare law to allow her to waive work requirements “subject only to her opinion” as to what will serve the purposes of the law.

By viewing the work requirements as optional, subject to her waiver, Kaus says, the law has been “altered dramatically”: “Old system: Congress writes the requirements, which are … requirements. New system: Sebelius does what she wants — but, hey, you can trust her!”

The Ann Coulter article is accurate. Obama and Sebelius have made it so she may inact what she determines to be a valid “Work Requirement”.

Well, I recalled reading about a lawsuit against the DHS filled by the Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach on behalf of 10 ICE Agents.    10 ICE agents assert that Uncle Janet Napolitano is  forcing them to break a federal law that was created by congress ratified in the senate and then signed by the president.

“The lawsuit notes the position that these ICE agents are being put in, they are being ordered by their political appointee superiors to break federal law, or if they don’t break federal law, according to their orders, they will be disciplined. This is an absolutely breath taking assertion of authority and an abuse of authority,” he added in a conference call with reporters, comparing the situation to Fast and Furious.

Republican lawmakers came out in support of the lawsuit Thursday, including Texas Reps. Louie Gohmert, John Carter and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith.

So can this same tactic not be used to back the feds off again?  After all the feds have tried to sue all the Red States for one thing or another.  Lets back them off.  The founders gave us a 10th amendment for a reason.  I would have to agree that the application of the 10th amendment here is is much preferred to that of a 2nd amendment solution, as referenced by a Texas judge about Obama’s possible re-election.

Something has to be done in America to preserve our Republic.  This ruling by edict and giving waivers is not running a country under a rule of law it is ruining a country with cronyism and corporatism.   The States must fight back or be consumed by an ever overburdening federal nanny.  Restore America and Nullify Obama in November, but for now lets sue them for everything they have done.  Saul Alinsky would be so proud!
