Another list of Obama's lawless behavior

Nixon might have been impeached for using the IRS to punish a few political enemies.  Here is an edited summary of what appeared in Investors' Business Daily (Aug. 16, 2013) (some deletions where I think that they are wrong):
 Aug. 14, 2013: Delayed ObamaCare caps on out-of-pocket health care costs•  
July 17, 2013: The 3rd, 4th Circuit (on this date), and DC Court of Appeals have ruled President Obama's National Labor Relations Board recess appointments and its decisions were unconstitutional. Obama adm ignores the rulings.•  
July 1, 2013: Delayed employer mandate provision of ObamaCare for a year•  
June 25, 2013: Obama administration sues Texas for voting rights violation after the Supreme Court ruled in Shelby County v. Eric Holder that Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act is "unconstitutional" and that "the formula can no longer be used as a basis for subjecting jurisdiction to preclearance." (Debatable) 
June 15, 2012: announced Obama adm will stop deporting illegal immigrants under the age of 30 in a "deferred action" policy to circumvent immigration laws. Congress had already rejected a similar measure about a year ago.•  
May 20, 2013: Fox News reporter James Rosen was investigated by the DOJ, which subpoenaed his phone records and emails in direct contravention of the First Amendment under the pretense that Rosen had committed a crime related to a leak investigation.•  
May 13, 2013: AP reported the DOJ secretly collected phone records of AP reporters and editors at work and home.   Something completely outside the law.•  
May 10, 2013: The IRS revealed it targeted conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status beginning in March 2010, a direct targeting of political opponents through the tax laws.•  
May 3, 2011: Lying before congress.  Attorney General Eric Holder falsely testified, "I'm not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks."  Later information clearly shows that he knew about that this claim was false.•  
March 27, 2012: With no regulatory authority, EPA issued final rules regulating greenhouse gas emissions on electric utilities that require power plants to use nonexisting carbon capture-and-control technology.•  
April 23, 2012: Ignoring Obamacare law, he postponed Medicare Advantage cuts and used unapproved funds to continue operations.•  
March 1, 2011: Attorney General Holder again lied to Congress when he said: "decisions made in the New Black Panther Party case were made by career attorneys in the department." Associate A.G. Thomas Perrelli, an Obama political appointee, overruled a unanimous recommendation for prosecution by DOJ attorneys.  
Feb. 3, 2010: Judge Martin Feldman held the Obama administration in contempt for re-imposing an offshore drilling moratorium that was struck down by the courts.
