The Eleventh Commandment?

Yes, ObamaCare is the law. Why does that mean it shouldn't be amended or repealed?

I know that Tweet is old. But it surely reflects the thinking that it is illegitimate to even think about repealing ObamaCare. But why? After all, we've had other laws. Are all of them written in stone?

At the risk of belaboring the obvious, some laws are bad. They can and should be repealed or amended. Some can be so bad that a war must be fought to end them.

And even good laws can be amended or repealed if one side has the votes (and a president willing to sign a bill, unless Congress has super majorities to override a veto, of course). Indeed, one Congress can't bind a future Congress. Laws are not remotely ever considered untouchable.

The ACA isn't sacred (although the left may be confused on this, considering how much they burn Bush). Let me know when that law gets chiseled into stone tablets. Until then, don't bother me with such Twitter nonsense from our White House.
