Nearing anarachy?

First we have the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that the ACA’s requirement to buy insurance is a tax, which even the administration denied.

Now we have a Washington federal court saying the legislation did not have to originate in the House as all tax bills are required to under the Constitution.

And we have an administration that makes its own law regarding implementation instead of what the statute says.

Question: When the common man losses faith in his government and courts, can anarchy be far behind?
