By his extra-legal acts, Barack Obama has given House Republicans the perfect tool to preface every piece of legislation that’s up for consideration this year.
After all, what good is new law, when he refuses to enforce – or ignores – existing law?
The first House legislation this year should be the “Oath Being A Main Action” act, laying out details of every law he has delayed, exempted, or refuses to enforce…
…and mandating that Obama honor his oath and re-instate those laws…
…before any new law can be brought up for consideration on the House floor.
If they don’t have the stomach for Impeachment of those who violate their oath…
…Republicans should (at the very least) be willing to stand up for the Rule of Law.
The office of President “…shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…”
Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution is very clear. Obama took an oath to “…preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution…” and must “faithfully execute” laws.
If he refuses to do so, or continues unchecked…what good are any new laws?
No legislation is worth the paper it’s printed on, until he honors the O-B-A-M-A Act.
