The Founders didn't give the Executive branch the authority to create legislation, nor did they give the Executive branch the authority to enforce the laws as it sees fit.
I triple dog dare you to show me where Obama has been in constitutional compliance with his enforcement of the employer mandate in ACA. You can't.
Again, you seem to believe that Obama shouldn't have any constitutional constraints because you believe the GOP is horrible. Back in the Bush years I complained about Dem obstructionism. You then lectured me that the Constitution, and all of the checks and balances, including the filibuster (which you now hate), were put into place to protect the minority - they were put into place to prevent this country from being mob rule (rule by the 51%). You were right about this. It was for that very reason that I applauded the 'Gang of 14' with their killing of the 'nuclear option'. A LOT of Republicans were pissed about it and this is what I told them: "You'll be VERY happy about it in 2009 if the Dems re-take the Senate and we have Hillary Clinton as President." Now, if the reverse holds true in 2016 you are going to rue what the Dems did by nuking the filibuster and I am going to giggle my ass off at your consternation (but I'll be far more upset at the longer-term damage being done to our checks and balances). But, now I am the one getting off-topic.
- turning the power of the IRS against US citizens
Your rwing activist SC did that, thank you very much, when they put the IRS in charge of the scam called 501 "donations".
What an uninformed whiner.

The rules governing 501's were created in 1959 when Southern Democrats wanted to compel the NAACP to expose its donors. Those rules remained in place until they were modified in 2002 with the passage of McCain-Feingold. When parts of McCain-Feingold were undone in 2010 with Citizens United, the rules effectively reverted back to where they always had been since '59.
Also, conservative groups, and ONLY conservative groups were subjected to these attacks. Even if you want to make the argument that the IRS amped up in response to CU, you can't possibly justify the fact that ONLY groups that were opposed to Dems and their ideologies were targeted.
Are you being obtuse, or are you truly ignorant as to what actually happened?
Do you even care that the IRS has been destroying material evidence? How about all of the Hatch Act violations?
