Obama himself has stated on many occasions: "It's the right thing to do!"
Constitutionality and any resulting burden of debt (taxation) don't matter if something is "the right thing to do."
On May 13, 2014, Obama again stated, "It's the right thing to do" — this time regarding immigration policy. Never mind the following:

A total of 36,007 illegal immigrants who committed nearly 88,000 crimes combined were freed last year while being processed for deportation, according to the report from the Center of Immigration Studies.Let's return now to the first link in this blog post. The title of the article is Obama: (Insert Issue Here) ‘It’s the Right Thing to Do’.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency gathered the statistics in response to a congressional inquiry.

This blog post mentions the Obama administration, but could just as easily refer to earlier administrations.
We often speak of the dangers of moral relativism.
Perhaps we should also be examining the inconsistencies and dangers of political relativism.
