CONSTITUTION DAY. Today is the United States Constitution’s 226th birthday. The Constitution, written in 1787, ratified in 1788, and in operation since 1789, is the world’s longest surviving written charter of government.

Unfortunately, President Obama and his administration have trampled on the Constitution throughout their time in office. Some might remember a couple of added amendments a century ago that changed the Constitution, and enables the trampling that is happening now. The 16th amendment created the IRS and the direct collection of taxes on individual incomes. The 17th amendment created the direct election of a U.S.Senator, and led to creating a big federal government that treats each State like a vassal to the federal government.

Heritage Action for America has written a column that details how Obama has trampled on the Constitution. Please read the entire column. Listed below are five ways Obama has trampled on the Constitution.

  • Changing Obamacare on the fly without congressional action
  • Implementing the DREAM Act by executive fiat
  • Making “recess appointments” while the Senate was in session
  • Waiving welfare work requirements
  • Encouraging federal contractors to violate the law
