Arbitrary & chaotic

There have been over 22,000 pages of new government regulations created to implement a 2,500-page law commonly called ObamaCare. Literally thousands of government employees have been hired to write, and then enforce, these rules. And now, the president makes a speech and declares that people, and the insurance industry, don't have to comply with unspecified parts of it.

One guy cannot verbally, arbitrarily and unspecifically rewrite rules that govern one-sixth of the entire country's economy and affect tens of millions of people's health care. Does he think he is the king? Even a king, a real king, would know better than to try to govern this way.

This is mass chaos. It really does matter who we vote for.
