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?
