President's actions violated Constitution

Editor, the Advocate:
Obama promised his administration would be the most transparent ever. However, we know nothing about the Fast and Furious, Benghazi and IRS scandals. The administration refuses to release information about them and even tries to misrepresent the facts concerning these issues.
Then there is the Affordable Health Care Act. Approximately 30 times now Obama has promised: "You can keep your insurance plan, period"; "You can keep your doctor, period"; and "You will save about $2,500 a year." The new plans cost more than our present plans; they have higher deductibles and higher out-of-pocket costs. Since 2010, these promises were known not to be true. Obama made these promises too many times to be a slip of the tongue. This is a bait-and-switch presentation, an outright lie.
The plan was developed to force the cancellation of your insurance policies, forcing you into "Obamacare." Then, because of its poor construction, the website has been crashing, and you can't log on. The back end of the website hasn't yet been built to provide a path to the insurance companies. The biggest problem, though, is the website is not secure. Your personal information, such as Social Security numbers, health history, etc., is easy prey for hackers. This information is your identity. And your health information is something only you and your doctor should be privy to.
To add salt to the wounds, Obama exempted Congress, his cabinet and their staffs from this wonderful health care plan that he has forced on us.
The Democrats in Congress passed this law, and Obama signed it. They own it. Obama has made exemptions and changed dates concerning this law, which he has no constitutional right to do. Only Congress can do that. He taught constitutional law and knows better.
Obama defrauded the American people to pass this law. He is a flimflam man - a con artist. After this, people who still support this man are either ideologues or have questionable cognitive skills.
