Draggingtree Posted July 11, 2014 Share Posted July 11, 2014 Patterico : 7/10/2014 President Obama and Speaker Boehner: ‘Let Her Rip’ Filed under: General — Dana @ 5:00 pm [guest post by Dana] Today in Austin, the president “let her rip” taking aim at Republicans pushing impeachment or threatening to sue him. According to the president, because he isn’t running for office again he can pretty much say whatever is on his mind: “‘Sue him! Impeach him!’ Really? For what? You’re going to sue me for doing my job?” Obama said. “I mean think about that — you’re going to use taxpayer money to sue me for doing my job, while you don’t do your job? Huh.” Coincidentally, Speaker Boehner announced today that after the House of Representatives passes a resolution giving itself authorization to sue President Obama, it will then “file suit against the president over his delay of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate”. 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. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
