Christopher DeMuth, writing in The Weekly Standard, notes among other things that

Obamacare is introducing a new form of government​—​improvisational government, characterized by continuous ad hoc revisions of statutory law by executive decree. This is a reversion to a primitive form that long antedates our Constitution and rule-of-law traditions.

Indeed.  What DeMuth calls “continuous ad hoc revisions…by decree” is simply rule-by-law.  Something at which the People’s Republic of China has excelled for centuries.  President Barack Obama might well take some advice from those folks.
