A Revolutionary Act
« on: January 25, 2017, 08:35:20 am »

Prez Trump ordered the IRS not to collect the fines taxes from those that forgo health insurance. Although ignored by the LSM, who seem to prefer reporting on angry women in the streets, the order sets a precedent going back (at least) 45 years.

Yes, that's good. The crazy Trump guy, however, is seriously taking liberty away with one hand and giving it (at least a little so far) with the other. We'll probably wind up no better off, just a different set of crazy. sigh

Ya got yer yin and ya got yer yang.
I'm not a fan of Executive Orders (starting mass wholesale in the Bush Jr. era BTW). OTOH, if they can keep each other busy trumping the previous lord's mandates, they might not have so much time to do more serious damage.

Oh really? Isn't that why they have a staff? Committees, rooms and tall buildings full of bureaucrats and their flunkies. :)

Oh, yea. They won't have any trouble with it.
