Separation of Powers

So, Republicans in Congress has proposed a law that makes the President enforce the law, and the President has said that if such a law is passed, he'll veto it.  Really,
The Administration strongly opposes H.R. 4138 because it violates the separation of powers by purporting to permit the Congress to challenge in court the exercise by the President of one of his core constitutional functions – taking care that Federal laws are faithfully executed.
Nevermind that one of the core duties of the presidency is to faithfully execute the laws, and nevermind that the president's signature achievement (ObamaCare) is not being faithfully executed.  The President keeps pushing back key parts of the law (today, he pushed back the individual mandate until 2016)   He keeps pushing back key parts of the law, because they are politically hot-potatoes, so he tries to shield vulnerable members of Congress from a law that they passed without any bipartisan support.  When the bill comes due, he just pushes it back.  The history of the imlementation of this law is one of delay and incompetence.  If this law had been faithfully executed from the start, the public would have been in open revolt and he'd have never been re-elected.

This guy is showing himself to be a bozo (my apologies to all the honest clowns trying to get insurance.)
