Obama threatens vetoes of bills requiring him to follow the law
President Obama is threatening to veto a law that would allowCongress to sue him in federal courts for arbitrarily changing or refusing to enforce federal laws because it "violates the separation of powers" by encroaching on his presidential authority.
"[T]he power the bill purports to assign to Congress to sue the President over whether he has properly discharged his constitutional obligation to take care that the laws be faithfully executed exceeds constitutional limitations," theWhite House Office of Management and Budget said Wednesday in a statement of administration policy. "Congress may not assign such power to itself, nor may it assign to the courts the task of resolving such generalized political disputes."
The lead sponsor of the measure, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said it was designed to curb Obama's abuse of presidential authority, most notably in his frequent changes to Obamacare.
There is no doubt that this administration violates the constitution regularly with executive orders, refusing to enforce laws they disagree with, using federal agencies against their political foes, and on and on. So the equally incompetent Republicans have now come up with a plan to stop him. I was thrilled thinking, finally the Republicans are going to do their duty and begin impeachment proceedings against him. Well demonstrating that the Republicans are equally corrupt you will find after reading this article, that the Republican plan involves filing suit to sue the President, not impeach him. I would laugh at this if it were not so incredibly asinine and insane. The one thing America does not need is another law, particularly one that is designed to line the pockets of trail lawyers and when the Constitution already addressed this.
This, my friends, is what you get when you elect lawyers to lead the nation. You get a gaggle of fools playing games with our money with no serious intention of doing anything other than padding their own pockets and stealing from the American taxpayer.
But I could be wrong . . .but let's just vote them all out and replace them with common sense working Americans who are not afraid to take a stand and represent the good of the Country, rather than their personal interest. But then why would any honest hard working American want to enter a life of "organized crime"?
