Because he did not enforce the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and now unilaterally adjusts the Obamacare law as it unfolds, President Barack Obama is sending a signal to liberal federal judges to mirror him and, as a result, the president’s long-term legacy will be “the establishment of lawlessness in the United States,” said Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).
Bachmann also compared Obama’s actions to those of former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi – “whatever he said was law.”
The congresswoman made her remarks during a Jan. 15 “Conversations with Conservatives” meeting at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. In response to a question about federal judges in several recent cases ruling that state bans against homosexual “marriage” were unconstitutional, Bachmann said this was part of a pattern set by the White House and the U.S. attorney general, which liberal federal judges were copying.
