House Republicans authorize lawsuit against Obama for presidential overreach

Mr. Obama mocked Republicans, telling them to “stop just hatin’ all the time,” but GOP lawmakers said they felt boxed in, being unable to get their legislation through the Democrat-controlled Senate and having to watch as the president tweaks, waives or ignores laws Congress has written but which he dislikes.

“This isn’t about Republicans and Democrats; it’s about defending the Constitution that we swore an oath to uphold and acting decisively when it might be compromised,” said House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, as he pleaded for Democrats to look beyond their party allegiance and defend Congress against an ever more powerful chief executive. “Are you willing to let any president choose what laws to execute and what laws to change?”

The 225-201 vote, which broke down almost entirely along party lines, was a resounding rejection of Mr. Boehner’s call, as Democrats said Republicans were more interested in repealing Obamacare and stopping the president’s agenda.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, the chamber’s top Democrat, said she could see no reason for the Republican effort unless it’s a precursor for impeachment.

    About time, what took so long.
    There are laws and a constitution which the 3 branches of the government must adhere to. No Dictatorial powers.
    If Nixon or Bush committed what Obama did, they would have been impeached and guillotined.

    1. bobnstuff says:

      They both did. Bush used to put notes on the bills he signed saying what part of the bill he wasn’t going to enforce. Obama is tied for second place for the least number of veto’s Bush pushed the limits more then any other president but FDR did it better. Read some history,

      1. Noah Rosenblum says:

        Obama beats them both combined.
        What about the size of spying on every one, including your emails and phone ? IRS treasonous behavior ?
        Benghazi ? There’s no justification for his behavior.
        Impeach him, and use the guillotine after.
        Just as an example for future president.
        Enforce the constitution

        1. bobnstuff says:

          The spying started right after 9/11 Ever heard of Home Land Security. The IRS was lower level people doing what they thought was their job. Benghazi had four people were they shouldn’t have been in the first place, they weren’t sent they just went. All those hearings on no smoking gun. What about the 60 people who died under Bush? You really need to read the constitution some time.

          1. Noah Rosenblum says:

            Obama ? Is that you ?
            Or are you his attorney ?
            The Buck stops at Obama’s desk No Excuses

          2. bobnstuff says:

            I don’t think Looking at right wing groups that clam to be nonprofits is treason. After all the hearings the house still haven’t found anything to pin on Obama over Benghazi. The spying started under Bush. The only Buck is the one the republicans are trying to create. I’m no big Obama fan. I’m a fan of the truth.

          3. Noah Rosenblum says:

            You’re a pathetic leftist Bolshevik, always deflecting, can’t face it when you’re wrong.
            You never will admit to a mistake.
            You never voted for the better candidate, you vote against one.
            The US will be ruined when the Democrats/Leftist turn it into a Socialist country.
            Obama thinks he’s Julius Caesar, you know what happened to him.

          4. bobnstuff says:

            If anything I would say I was center right. Just because I like the truth doesn’t make me wrong. If the republicans can’t nail Obama in seven hearings maybe there isn’t anything to find. I could NEVER vote for Romney, I worked for a Bain Capital company. If he ran the country like he ran his business we would have sold of the capital building by now. Just how is making people buy insurance from private companies socialist? Just what industry has the government taken over? What rights have you lost? You are a whining little person who can’t think for themselves and will believe crap because they want to believe it, not because it’s true or even makes sense. Get a life!

          5. Noah Rosenblum says:

            I am waiting for the White House to sell me automobile , homeowners, and life insurance, the total package. by the end of this year your leftist president will sell used cars as well.
            He’s a criminal for practically doubling the national debt, it’s now at over $17Trillion, and by the time Mao Tse Obama leaves office it will be at over $20 Billion.
            He’s almost tied with that Peanut Brain loser farmer (JC) for the worst president. the Good News is after Obama leaves office, we have no where to go but up.

          6. bobnstuff says:

            So the president has the power of the purse, that’s news. The government spent the money. The president can ask for money but if the congress says no it’s no. How much of the debt was spent by the republicans. All tax bills must start in the house. Don’t the republicans hold the house? How much money is wasted by the house holding hearings on the same thing over and over and over again. How much time has been wasted by the House trying to repeal the same bill? Is Obama the best president ever, no. Is he the worst, no. Would Romney been better, No. Has the republicans put up a good candidate in the last two president election. No. If the republicans want to win in 2016 they had better get a candidate that represents all the people not just the far right. Then they have to support them.

  • mudguy1 says:

    What a waste of time!!! We have a !7 trillion dollar debt, a border and immigration crises, IRS ,EPA and Obamacare that needs to be be defunded and thats the power that was given the House and they waste time on suing Obama.Why when the Republicans are accused of doing nothing nobody speaks up and tells the country that Harry Reid has been setting on 50 or bills that he refuses to bring up. This needs to be brought up everyday. Instead of this law suit that will do nothing but lose votes.

    1. bobnstuff says:

      Harry is sitting on 15 bills not 50, I looked it up. If you take time to read the you will find that they are mostly give a ways for the rich. the ACA is working it has lowered my medical costs. There are still less people coming in across the border then 10 years ago. If you want to lower the debt you need more tax dollars, raise the taxes to Reagan levels. The House loves wasting time and money. The house isn’t doing nothing, they are busy trying to find anything on Obama that will stick.

      1. mudguy1 says:

        Not sure what tea you drinking or what weed you are smoking. ACA IS NOT working.
        Did you check how many signed up in Oregon? Zero.
        How many doctors have you check with?
        How many have lost there insurance coverage for cancer and are dying?
        How many thought they had coverage and now the doctors are on the hook for the surgeries because the doctors were told they covered and when bill got to the insurance company the patient was not covered.
        Hope you enjoy your King Obama and Prince Reid.
        As far as the rich goes I have never gotten a job from a poor person.

        1. bobnstuff says:

          Lets look at some facts. 56,000 enrolled in Oregon. The only way you can be dropped from coverage is for not paying your bill, The rules for payment to doctors haven’t changed since the insurance is through insurance companies. The government signs you up with insurers they don’t run the company, My doctor has no problem with my insurance nor do the hospitals in my area. Prime sources not AM shock jocks. Plus most new jobs are created by small business’s. When I started my first business I was broke, I barrowed the money. I employed ten people my first year.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Check the date Nov. 23 2013. They made a come back in December. I saw that one too but then I saw the date on it and kept looking for something newer.

          2. mudguy1 says:

            Check this date I guess by your standards ACA is a success in Oregon.
            I guess that you are part of the at least 35% of the American people that like and think ACA is good for the country. Wonder how you would like it if you had more than 50 employes? Lets how well ACA does when the employee mandate kicks in.
            No comment on the amount bills Reid is setting.

            Actually they did pretty good for the such a bad start, It show just how much people wanted insurance. I think it’s a shame that companies have to be made to offer insurance. Every company I have owned or ran offered insurance after 90 days for full time employees, I got better employees and cut down on turnover. And by the way I have had more then 50 employees.

          4. mudguy1 says:

            But you don’t now have 50 employees now. And when you did that was then and not now.
            Pretty good is not a success.
            You haven’t answered my other questions.
            The government has no business forcing Americans to buy health insurance.
            ACA is controlling 1/6th of our economy and not about our health coverage.
            Over 65% of Americans don’t like ACA and don’t want it.
            Agin I guess you like to be force to buy a health insurance policy that has coverage that you don’t need or want.

    “Stop hating ” who was the one that started all this RACIST talk ? it isn’t us (the American working stiffs) we are to busy paying the bills and feeding our families to be bothered with racism .. who has time on their hands ..? the welfare and Obama .. Obama spends most of his time vacationing golfing, partying. and spreading his HATE and RACISM .. You would think the welfare would catch on ..! .. they get a little money and a few food stamps .. while Obama sends billions of tax payer money to keep up his playboy life style ..
    If America doesn’t answer the call to VOTE this November, we may lose the last chance we have to put this country back on the right track ..!
    GOD will Bless America if we Honor HIM !

      That is when we will have Anarchy, and he is setting us up just for that with MS13 and the sheer numbers of illegals. If his pen and phone give out an amnesty to these people, the US will be over as a Nation. That is exactly what he meant to achieve, he is a muslim and a traitor to our country. Wait, he cannot be called a traitor because he was never EVER born here, he admitted he was from Kenya and so did Moochelle.

  • SAMKD1 says:

    Perhaps they just need to start impeachment proceedings and get this evil Un-American president out of office, so this country can move forward in a positive way. Obama has done nothing to improve the lives of Americans. Obamacare is a joke and will prove to be the downfall of his presidency, but the harm imposed on the American people will last long after he is gone!!!!
