Executive Orders are not law since they are not derived from legislation nor has an Executive Order ever been challenged in the USSC since the only organization which can challenge an Executive Order is the Congress. And there are no secret Executive Orders since they have to be published or they are not an order.

Comment Wow. When is a penalty not a penalty? (Score 1) 2416

When it's a tax! Frankly, after reading this ruling I'm still shaking my head. Roberts shot down every argument made by the Federal government in support of the ACA, then in order to sustain the act, made some convoluted argument that what was clearly labeled as a penalty was in fact a tax. This ruling has to be the most f**cked up ruling I've ever read.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
