Krauthammer: Obama Is Using Regulations to Bypass Congress and Change Our Country
Charles Krauthammer alleges that the president and his administration are trying to transform America by using business regulations. He said, “The president’s never made a secret of his desire to change America, that’s what he campaigned on and that’s what he did at the beginning of his presidency. He’s already changed it radically through legal means through Obamacare, but when he doesn’t succeed in Congress, he goes under the radar.”
Krauthammer provided examples including the DREAM Act which says that if you were brought here by illegal parents, and you meet certain criteria, you get amnesty. Congress rejected the act, so Obama’s Department of Homeland Security issued regulations which essentially enact the DREAM Act.

He also outlined Cap & Trade, which he describes as a way to regulate the emission of carbon and shut down the coal industry. The last Congress, which was controlled by Dems, utterly rejected it. The administration is now issuing regulations that will essentially shut down about 10% of coal generating electricity in the U.S.
Krauthammer reiterated that under the Constitution, the executive executes the laws that Congress has passed and should not be executing laws that Congress has rejected.
