The USA was created as a nation of laws, under the rule of law. Laws were to apply equally to all citizens. That is no longer true.
For decades, our senators and representatives have exempted themselves from some of the laws that the rest of us must live under. A recent example is the so-called Affordable Care Act ("health care bill"), which does not apply to them, their aides or their families.
We now have a government that unabashedly writes and enforces laws with exclusions, exceptions and exemptions, as well as incentives for favored groups. The Act gave some states and companies and organizations financial incentives to support it. Some large companies and unions asked for exemptions from the Act and received them.
In 2014, employers with 50 full-time employees are mandated to offer them health care or pay fines. Now the Administration has arbitrarily delayed that a year, until after mid-term elections when employers could have been a strong force against them.
However, the individual mandate remains in effect. With employers now having no incentive to cover employees, more employees will have to join 'exchanges', which is what the Obamacrats wanted anyway: a government-run healthcare system and the demise of the employer-based system.
Our government's main function now seems to be increasing its power by creating laws that reward some people and make more people more dependent on government. It will continue unless we stop it. How far must it go before you become politically active?
