Trey Gowdy Attempts to Stop Obama’s “Imperial Presidency”

Trey Gowdy is one of the few Republicans who seems committed to fighting back against Obama’s unconstitutional laws and executive orders.

Recently, he publicly stated he would use the appropriations process to derail Obama’s pet projects by refusing to fund them.

And now Gowdy has sponsored a bill that would allow the House or Senate to sue the executive branch for not enforcing laws.

Congress passed a bill which essentially puts a muzzle on the Obama Administration’s repetitive violations of the law; particularly the U.S. Constitution. The “Enforce the Law Act”, HR 4138 was sponsored by Trey Gowdy (R. S.C.), and would authorize the House or Senate to sue the executive branch for not enforcing laws and provide expedited processing through the federal courts. The bill is one of several the House GOP are pushing to stop Obama’s “imperial presidency”. http://preservefreedom.org/trey-gowdy-at...n=140401PF

In order to protect the Constitution he wants to pass a extraconstitutional law Rolleyes

Congress has more than enough real constitutional power to do what they want. Its not the Constitution's fault they can't get enough votes to do the right thing.

And just think when we finally have in office a POTUS that we like and the Dems start using this law for their purposes. Good times!

Selective enforcement isnt o.k. for anyone, and if the political roles were reversed i would still support it. If laws arent going to be enforced, the correct process is repeal. This is a solution to a problem that the executive branch has created for itself, and the power to legislate resides with the Congress, so it is hardly unconstitutional.

The really interesting part of this will be if it actually makes it to the Oval Office for Resident Obama's signature. He would either be forced to sign it to show he does respect the Constitution and the rule if law, or he will refuse and prove to the country he has no respect for the Constitution or the rule of law.

IMHO no sane POTUS would sign it as it expands the power of Congress.

Again, Congress already has all the power it needs. This move is akin to biting your opponent because you are losing the fight based on the rules.

Have to agree on this one. Congress already has the means to correct the issue.

The number of laws on the books that are not enforced (and many for good reason) is staggering. This would simply add one more law that goes unenforced until that magical time when it's used against you or your side.

Congress needs to stop giving the executive branch it's authority and use the tools it has via the Constitution to correct the many issues with Govt. Adding more unnecessary layers is not an answer but a continuation down the spiral.
