Holding the President Accountable with the Stop This Overreaching Presidency (STOP) Resolution
President Obama declared a pen and a phone were all he needed to push his political agenda. Then at the State of the Union last week he reaffirmed that he “won’t wait” for Congress, and will act alone “wherever and whenever” he can. But our Founding Fathers put a lot of work into crafting our Constitution, and they included checks and balances for a reason.
What the President doesn’t seem to want to remember is that they also included Congressional oversight and the ability to check an overreaching Executive. I won’t stand by and watch the President unilaterally push his liberal agenda with no regard to our Constitution. That’s why I'm fighting for the Stop This Overreaching Presidency (STOP) Resolution that directs the House to hold President Obama legally responsible for trying to circumvent Congress when it suits his political purposes.
