Otis H. Hutchinson: Obama has impeachable offenses

Every time that I pick up the newspaper, I see the president has done something or his administration has done something that could be called an impeachable act.

Congress passed a health care bill and the President signed Obamacare or the Affordable Health Care Act. From time to time, the president has taken it upon himself to tweak portions of the bill he finds politically expedient. He has extended the deadline for mandatory enrollment for certain people. All of this has been done without the consent of the Congress. One might think that the Congress would begin impeachment proceedings, but of course those proceedings originate in the Senate, which coincidentally is controlled by Democrats.

This is only one of the events in which the president has thumbed his nose at the Constitution and the people of the United States. Other news that shakes up the voters are the Benghazi cover-up and now the goings-on at the Veterans Administration.
