President Obama leads the “Top Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” for 2013, named by the Washington watchdog Judicial Watch.
This year the “honor” is for acting “as a one-man Congress, rewriting entire sections of federal law on his own.”
Judicial Watch annually releases a list of the top politicians who misbehave while purportedly representing taxpayers in Washington. The 2013 “honors” go to, in alphabetical order, House Speaker John Boehner, CIA Director John Brennan, Sen. Saxby Chambliss, Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder, former IRS commissioner Steve T. Miller and former IRS official Lois Lerner, ex-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, Obama, Sen. Harry Reid and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
Several are perennial selections, including Obama, who has been on the list for seven years already, and Holder.
Obama, the organization contends, “is a master at catch-me-if-you can, corrupt politics.”
“Not only is his administration secretive and dishonest; its callous disregard for the rule of law undermines our constitutional republic,” the report said.
“Perhaps Obama’s most outrageous actions over the past year were his continual lies about the ability of Americans to keep their own health insurance under Obamacare. According the Free Beacon, Obama misled the American people a total of 36 times between 2008 and 2013 with his promise, ‘If you like your health insurance, you can keep it.’ And according to NBC News, Obama knew, even as he repeated his lie, that ‘more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.’
“According to the Galen Institute, Obama has now unilaterally rewritten the Obamacare law as passed by Congress 14 times by executive fiat, with the majority of those changes coming in 2013. Those changes include such major overhauls as the congressional opt-out, eviscerating the individual mandate, and delaying the employer mandate. The latest Obama fix came on December 20, when he suddenly moved to allow hundreds of thousands of people who have lost their insurance due to Obamacare to sign up for bare-bone ‘catastrophic’ plans,” it said.
