Where does the road end with President Obama's operating above the law? Recently, he even went so far as to attack the signature legislative achievement of another Democratic President, the 1996 reform law that President Clinton said would end "welfare as we know it." On July 12, the Obama Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued guidance saying that it will issue waivers for the welfare law's mandatory work requirements - even though the Department has no authority to do so. This abuse of power shows President Obama's vision of a government-controlled society.
