If Congress wont act soon to protect the future generations, I will, I will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take now and in the future to reduce pollutions. - President Barack Obama
Earlier today, House Speaker John Boehner said that he didnt think that he (Obama) had the ability to impose a national energy tax on Americans without the authority of Congress. Reading between the lines, Boehner is saying that if Obama enacts any executive order framed in the form of a tax raising directive, it would violate the constitution, as only Congress is allowed to pass legislation that raise taxes on Americans.
I dont know what actions the president thinks he can take I dont think he has the ability to impose a national energy tax on Americans without the authority of Congress. -Speaker John Boehner
Another one of President Obamas most outspoken critics of his policies has been Florida Congressman Tom Rooney, who offered up this response to the Presidents threat of unilateral executive action-
How are our families, small business owners and farmers supposed to cope with higher energy costs than were already facing? The President said the first question we should ask ourselves is how to bring more jobs to our country, but all of his proposals will cost us many of the jobs we already have. A national energy tax is a nonstarter in the House, and the President has no authority to impose one on his own.- Rep. Tom Rooney
Some congressional Republicans continue to privately discuss the idea of impeaching the President were he to continue bypassing Congress

Did Boner cry when he said that?
Do not upset Dear Leader.
Tell me another joke! America is finished.
It's another bonehead head-slap moment. The real problem is bonehead does not "think", in the usual sense of the word.
“Didn’t think” Obama has the authority to unilaterally levy taxes. How inspiring.
Don’t make me burn these tires.
Defund the EPA
Defund the EPA
My congressman had a bill that would have gone a long way toward restraining the EPA but it died in the GOP led committee.
How many 3?
I doubt there are any more Republican congreessmen/women with the courage to even dare utter impeach, let alone carry through with the process. Sorry bunch that most are.
Who is protecting future generations from the TBIC?
I have gotten several phone calls from some conservative groups leaving messages about impeachment. What a waste of time with the present configuration of the Senate!
Your wing of the one government party is playing you all for a bunch of fools. And you’re letting them get away with it. If they wanted to stop these EO power grabs, they would simply not fund the agencies ordered to carry out the EO’s. But you guys keep playing Charlie Brown and running for that football Lucy is holding. Your leadership isn’t gutless...they are stabbing you in the back, knowing that you will come back for more on election day.
AMEN to that, Orangedog.
Why isn’t this dictator being impeached? Because the weenies in the GOP don’t have the guts after that lovable liar Clinton got off scott free.
If folks are trusting in the Republicants to turn the ship away from the approaching icebergs, they need an awakening. If the gun grabbing democrips current moves to make them vulnerable to criminals doesn’t wake them up then they are not going to be arosed. It is time to clean our battle rifles. The Boy Scout Motto comes to mind ...

Why shouldn’t he? The pussies in the Republican Party won’t do a damn think about it and Herr Obama knows it.
Whatever Obama decides to do these Chicken hearts in Congress will just say “Yassuh Massah Obama suh.”
We dasn’t oppose yo suh, we might get called racist.
I am stunned by the lack of representation from the GOP. It's like some kind of mystery novel.
Hate to sound so fatalistic, but after another four years of this poppy-cock, I don't see how we can ever realize conservatism again in government.
Even my beloved Texas is predicted to turn blue in a lil over a decade due to upcoming amnesty and the influx of folks from yankee land and the left coast.
“to protect the future generations”
If Obama cared at all about future generations (of Americans), he wouldn’t be piling all this massive debt on them.
Just another bluff by the kenyan to keep the GOP running in circles and off message RE economic issues.
I expect that Boehner to be on a smoke break when Obozo issues the executive order.
