"Yesterday Uber launched its ridesharing service, UberX, in four cities in South Carolina, offering residents of Charleston, Greenville, Columbia, and Myrtle Beach five free UberX rides each until July 24th. Unfortunately, the San Francisco-based technology company’s move into South Carolina could lead to conflicts with Palmetto State regulators."

"We can do better. We can encourage the same dynamism, choice, and entrepreneurship in #education that have driven the fantastic progress in every other field."

"The root higher #education problem, quite simply, is far from skin deep. It is the very idea that government should pay for people to go to college, which has been driving rampant tuition inflation and crippling higher education over consumption for decades."
It is much easier to be a rosy politician who says ‘everyone should go to college’ than one who makes policy based on reality.

IMO; the spend-a-thon is a result of monetizing higher education through the partnerships between colleges and student loan purveyors, facilitated by Sallie Mae. Colleges discovered a cash cow and financiers discovered a safe investment.

I'd love to see the +The Cato Institute  chartists graph college costs vs. student loans since the seventies.

If he acts on his own he is a tyrant and if he doesn't he is weak. Guys, make up your mind.

One more law that President Obama is ignoring: issuing the #SocialSecurity annual report on-time.

According to Cato's own table, presented here, there is little difference between Obama's record of compliance than previous presidents.
Also, where is the evidence that he is not "faithfully" executing this law? There is no reason to believe  he is not acting in "good-faith". As noted in the article there have been good and justifiable reasons for being late.
Before making accusations perhaps Cato should check out the facts of the matter and include them in the article. Or is the intent to just "pile on" with a recent conservative talking point? You should be better than that, Cato.

"The Cato Institute is the foremost upholder of the idea of liberty." - George F. Will
Introduction

The Cato Institute is a public policy research organization — a think tank — dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace. Its scholars and analysts conduct independent, nonpartisan research on a wide range of policy issues.

Founded in 1977, Cato owes its name to Cato's Letters, a series of essays published in 18th- century England that presented a vision of society free from excessive government power. Those essays inspired the architects of the American Revolution. And the simple, timeless principles of that revolution — individual liberty, limited government, and free markets — turn out to be even more powerful in today's world of global markets and unprecedented access to more information than Jefferson or Madison could have imagined. Social and economic freedom is not just the best policy for a free people, it is the indispensable framework for the future.
