Congress, at times, amazes me. From what I’ve been told, Congress has the power to force the President to do the job he was elected to do and prevent him from overstepping his bounds. Congress is made up of about 535 Lawyers who claim they are “top dog” in the “know it all” department. So what’s all the hype about?
Reading over the statements made by Representatives and Senators, my jaw drops and the frontal lobe of my brain starts working overtime. My left brain said to the right “I thought we elected Congress to take care of our National Problems.”
- “Rule of law in America depends on that our President doesn’t have the power to do this,” said Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah). “He certainly has no business telling us he’s going to do it by executive fiat after the election. But the fact that he’s done that should hasten us to vote on it now.”
- In the Senate, I was proud to introduce legislation to put into law to make it unequivocal that the president prospectively has no authority to grant amnesty,” Cruz said
- Rep. John Carter (R-Texas) said. “Let’s get real: Follow the law, Mr. President, you follow the law, we’ll be happy.”
- President Obama feels he is “above the law” and has made a “habit” of violating the Constitution and U.S. law, Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., charged in a radio interview Sunday
- Washington Republicans on Sunday restated their argument that President Obama has violated the Constitution
- “The president knows this is wrong,” said Lee
- The Supreme Court dealt a blow to the powers of the presidency Thursday, ruling decisively that President Obama violated the Constitution
- GOP Lawmakers: Prisoner Exchange Violated Law, by failing to provide congress 30 days notice before transferring any terrorist from the U.S. detention facility in Cuba
- WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama violated the Constitution when he bypassed the Senate last year to appoint three members of the National Labor Relations
And on and on and on.
And then we have the bloggers repeatedly announcing, with references, incidents of treason, bribery etc. etc. of President Obama which are all offenses for impeachment.
So, I’ve ask my Representative and Senators for the reason they are standing around bitchin’ about what the President is doing when they have the power to stop it!
Perhaps our next letter to our elected Officials should read…
I’ve noticed in the news that you and/or your colleagues have made repeated statements that President Obama has violated law.
In recent months, I received a ticket for not wearing my seat belt in which I have been put through the ringer. If not wearing a seat belt is enough to be prosecuted for, why can’t we prosecute a President who has committed Treason? Obviously, law enforcement is a little on the board side so perhaps we should give them something of interest to work on rather than harassing innocent citizens who do no harm to others.
Isn’t treason and bribery a much worse case than not wearing a seat belt? Or, do you promote funding terrorists also?
I’ll be looking forward to your quick response.
P.S. I don’t care if you are Democrat or Republic or Tea Party. Treason and Bribery have no political preference.
