... what will finally awake Greater Wingnuttia to the dangers of a Yoo-vian Executive Unbound.
Spolier alert! Torture and whim-wars are not in it.
The True Nightmare is that Executive Branch has employees -- employees who have healthcare benefits.
Some 2.6 million federal employees work at the behest of the president and his cabinet. Any surprise they’ve ALL avoided ObamaCare?
It's not actually a surprise that anyone who gets insurance through their employer isn't typically affected by Obamacare; nor it is a surprise that the executive branch is allowed to hire employees.
There are many excellent rejoinders to be made against John Yoo's theses regarding executive overreach. There are many excellent points to be made against the present administration as regards the NSA, drones, etc.
That executive branch overreach consists of federal employees receiving employer-based healh insurance, thus making them amenable to treason is... interesting. Or, more precisely, symptomatic.
