President Obama should drop the charade of democracy and rule directly through executive orders, U.S. Rep. Charlie Rangel told a New York news station.
In an interview that praised Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Democrats for doing away with filibusters on most presidential nominees, Rangel told NY1 that Obama has already set a precedent for making his own laws without regard for Congress, according to Politicker.
When Obama announced last year that illegal immigrants brought to this country by their parents would no longer be deported, the president wrote a script that could be used in many acts to come, Rangel said.
“You know, the DREAM Act for the kids that came over here and didn’t know their hometown, the president did that by executive order,” Rangel said. “What I did is I’ve taken out the language that he used, and I’m gonna see why we can’t use executive orders for everything.”
Rangel is ghetto gentry, a conscienceless con man who’s built a career enriching himself at the expense of taxpayers and his own supposed New York “community.” In 2010, he became the first congressman censured by the full House almost 30 years.
That was for evading taxes on property he owned in the Dominican Republic (while he was chairman of the House Appropriations Committee), occupying four “rent-controlled” apartments in his Harlem district that are supposed to assist fixed-income tenants (he used one as a campaign headquarters), and pimping congressional letterhead to attract money to build a monument to himself at City College of New York.
Now this man, who at 83 has abused the democratic process for his own ends for decades, has had enough of democracy.
“What’s [Obama] gonna do?” Rangel asked. “Make the Republicans angry? They’re gonna get annoyed? They’re not gonna cooperate?”
No, Congressman, they’re not gonna cooperate.
But if Obama and this country’s libs ever do succeed in dismantling constitutional democracy in the United States, the Dominican Republic sounds like a fine place for a useless congressman to retire to.
They’ve raised taxes down there to pay for a swollen government and welfare benefits, but smart guys can always figure out how to get around them.
Rangel should fit right in.
