Government Shutdown and Obstruction of Justice

Obstruction of justice can include crimes committed by judges, prosecutors, attorneys general, and elected officials in general.

Obstruction of justice is an attempt to interfere with the administration of the courts, the judicial system or law enforcement officers, including threatening witnesses, improper conversations with jurors, hiding evidence, or interfering with an arrest.

This is how Congress is acting. The Affordable Health Care Act was passed into law by the House and Senate and signed by the President. The Supreme Court ruled that the law was constitutional. President Obama was reelected by a large margin in the 2012 election. Those in congress who are trying to block the implementation of the law are obstructing justice and should be treated accordingly. If this is not obstruction of justice what is?

It is time our congress grow up and stop acting like a kid on a school playground. The law was legally passed, the Supreme Court issued an opinion that the law is constitutional and it is time to move on. In our country the government is "of the people, by the people and for the people". If you don't like what the government is doing elect a new one. That is how our system works.

  1. You can't be serious. Blues and Reds passed it without even reading it. Now that it is clear how it will effect the economy, mainly jobs during a dismal recovery from the recession, Congress would be doing the country an injustice to not defund it.

  2. You can't be serious Stephen. When the blues and red passed Obamacare it was not read or understood. Mistake on their part, YES. Regardless of why it passed, it is now clear that it will and already is killing jobs and hours (for FTE's) during a weak attempt of economic recovery after a serious recession. Congress would be doing the country even more of a disservice than they already have by not trying to defund this abhorrent bill.

  3. Chris,

    Congress with its unwillingness to invest in the future has killed more jobs than the health care act.

    Banicki is right. you either believe in the constitution or you don't. If you want to change the law do it in accordance with the law.
