How dictators work

Now, President Obama is changing the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) to “correct” some shortcomings. Forget about the fact that the ACA is so flawed that this sort of patching-up could go on and on for months and months.

Rather, think about the fact that, if a sitting president changes laws passed by Congress, isn't that usurping of congressional powers as set forth in the Constitution?

Isn't that how dictators assume power?
