Another attempt by Congress to appear like they will try to restore the Constitution under a tyrannical pResident? Darrell Issa cannot even get Lois Lerner to respect him. What makes him think that Obama will give him any respect. Someone needs to remind Issa that Eric Holder showed him the door during the Fast & Furious hearings. How is that contempt of Congress charge coming along? And once again Boehner is missing in action.
House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.) and Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) laid out their plans to counter President Barack Obama’s executive overreach, in a conference call Thursday.
The House will continue its efforts to push back against the “imperial presidency” next week, by voting on additional legislation that would allow Congress to challenge executive moves in federal court.
“Clearly President Obama has taken the über presidency to a whole new level,” McMorris Rodgers said. “While it’s not new for presidents to stretch their constitutional limits of power, executive overreach has accelerated at a faster pace under President Obama.”
“Throughout his tenure we have witnessed a pattern,” she said. “When the president disagrees with laws, he ignores them. And now that Obamacare isn’t working, President Obama is rewriting his own law on a whim.”
