Question for Shimkus

November 24, 2013 

I would like to ask U.S. Rep. John Shimkus one question. I know I will get some runaround answer.

Question: If Congress makes the laws for the United States, how can the president change them as he wishes? Point: Obamacare health insurance. The president has changed the law more than 20 times to suit himself, yet no congressmen, Democrat or Republican, has challenged him on this.

If the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land, then stay with the way it is written, good or bad.

I thought about voting for some Republicans but I can't do that now because I don't like jellyfish, especially mealy-mouthed fish with no backbone.

Can someone answer me this question?
