House Resolution to Authorize a Lawsuit Against the President
At the beginning of this Congress, I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. This week the House of Representatives took an important step in fulfilling our oath when we passed the House Resolution that I authored to authorize a lawsuit against President Obama for failing to faithfully execute the law.
This lawsuit seeks to ensure that Congress is able to continue to play its role in writing the laws that govern our nation. Unfortunately, the President has ignored the Congress and changed the law without following the constitutional process. That is why the President’s system of unilateral governance must be stopped. I am very pleased that the House of Representatives has taken action to defend the Constitution to ensure that the laws on which our nation was founded are protected.
