The Federal Trade Commission has issued an alert warning that unscrupulous individuals are using the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) to obtain personal financial information from consumers. According to the alert, these "scam artists want your information to commit identity theft, charge your existing credit cards, debit your checking account, open new credit card, checking, or savings accounts, write fraudulent checks, or take out loans in your name.

But what is striking is that the words Speaker Boehner chose to summarize the situation are so applicable to so much about the Obama administration. "We're going to proceed," he said. "We've given them ample opportunity to reply."

As the Republican primary season plods along, the opponent the eventual nominee will face is either abandoning all pretext and revealing what "fundamentally transform" really means or spiraling out of control. With the Supreme Court moving toward the likely ruling that his signature legislation is unconstitutional, President Barack Obama has launched a pre-emptive strike against the court and the constitution itself.
