  1. By blowing off the health care mandate – upheld by the supreme court – that states establish “insurance clearing houses” is Walker not breaking his oath of office? I realize that “the best of his ability” is quite limited. But his minders should be able to advise him.

    WI Constitution: Article IV. SECTION 28. Oath of office.
    Members of the legislature, and all officers, executive and judicial, except such inferior officers as may be by law exempted, shall before they enter upon the duties of their respective offices, take and subscribe an oath or affirmation to support the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the state of Wisconsin, and faithfully to discharge the duties of their respective offices to the best of their
    ability. (See also the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution: Article 6, Clause 2.)
