Bout time he gets pissed off:
“he has been President for five and half years, when’s he going to take some responsibility for something?”
I like Allah’s answer to Boehner’s question:
“Next month, if we get another good jobs report.”
Then there’s this:
House Speaker John Boehner outlined his strategy Thursday for pursuing a lawsuit against President Obama, saying the case will focus on the president’s “unilateral” changes to the health care law’s so-called employer mandate.
Until now, the speaker had not made clear which executive actions his proposed congressional lawsuit would challenge.
His office, releasing a draft resolution authorizing the suit, revealed Thursday that the crux of the case will be the Obama administration’s decision in 2013 to delay the requirement on certain employers to provide health coverage to workers.
“In 2013, the president changed the health care law without a vote of Congress, effectively creating his own law by literally waiving the employer mandate and the penalties for failing to comply with it.That’s not the way our system of government was designed to work. No president should have the power to make laws on his or her own,” Boehner said in a statement.
He added: “If this president can get away with making his own laws, future presidents will have the ability to as well.The House has an obligation to stand up for the Legislative Branch, and the Constitution, and that is exactly what we will do.”
Is this guy finally starting to grow a backbone? I’ve asked that question more than once over the last few years and each time I’ve been disappointed.
Don’t think that’s going to change but we shall see.
