As threats abound by Obama, against the nation, to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who have anchor babies & children who were born in the US during their unlawful residency within our country; Speaker Boehner is forcefully warning that the power of the Congress will be brought to bear against the Executive Branch of our government.
Mr. Boehner’s current GOP majority in the House of Representatives had better do more than fight. Congress was given the power by the Founders to hold the Executive Branch hostage & a more effective man would be out & about declaring that any executive action in this matter would not be allowed. Mr. Boehner has been afraid to communicate effectively in the past & hesitant to lay down the law, metaphorically-speaking. If used correctly, the power of Congress could rival that of the president.
John Boehner’s problem is, can’t see the forest for the trees. He lives in a political reality with set rules & standards that he lives with daily. This Republican leader must stop being timid as he needs to be the effector for McConnell to wield power as titular head of the entire Congress, when the Republicans take control of both Houses of Congress.
The Founders designed our government, as it stands, for a reason. Balance & an assurance of the rule of law.
We have been too willing to let all this slide with the relatively smaller issues of war powers, control of agencies, etc. This is different & goes to the heart of the nation.
The American People have spoken & their mandate is to stop Obama’s agenda, in all it’s vile complexity.
Fight! Dictate with the Power of the Purse. The Congress itself decides where & to what monies are given.
