Is It Time to Impeach Obama?


The White House officials said that the ruling would not have an impact on implementation of the law, which is being phased in gradually. (The individual mandate, for example, does not begin until 2014.) They said that states cannot use the ruling as a basis to delay implementation in part because the ruling does not rest on "anything like a conventional Constitutional analysis." Twenty-six states were involved in the lawsuit.
So now we have a White House that has declared its intent to ignore a declaratory judgment.
The Administration has no right to do this.

Last time I checked, the president takes office by swearing with an oath to uphold and defend the constitution of the United States of America, over which he presides.  At this point, it is clear that the health care bill that he signed into law has been ruled unconstitutional.  Therefore, he needs to either immediately comply with the ruling or appeal the ruling and ask for a stay pending a decision on appeal.

It appears that the administration is doing neither.

As it stands, the administration is flagrantly disobeying the law, and in so doing is ignoring its duty to uphold the Constitution.    Remember, the president swore to uphold the constitution.  If he shirks his duty in this matter, he is then unfit to command, and should be removed from office.  If he does not resign, he should be impeached.  He is failing his constitutional duty, and needs to be relieved.

UPDATE: Karl Denninger offers a challenge to Republicans
