Skip to comments.GOP wants to STOP (Stop This Overreaching Presidency) Obama
Posted on 02/01/2014 4:51:13 PM PST by Innovative
A group of House Republicans is pushing a resolution to bring legal action against President Barack Obama for overstepping his authority in executive orders.
The STOP (Stop This Overreaching Presidency) resolution, sponsored by Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.), targets Obama for allowing a year extension health care policies that were ended because of Obamacare; delaying the employer mandate for one year; deferring the deportation of illegal immigrants brought to the country as children and waiving part of the welfare work requirement.
Hes got a pen and a telephone, its true, but weve got the Constitution, Rice said on Wednesday. The prosperity of this country arose from those freedoms and they must be protected.

The correct answer is articles of impeachment.
Exactly what are they planning to do. Shoot spitballs thru a straw?
Obama faces backlash on executive power
“The executive agenda outlined in the Politico Pro report which described an administration eager to shape everything from the content of third-grade math tests to the recipe for Reeses Pieces to the fuel sources that power our homes spooks voters, and not just Republicans, said Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah). This is something that people react to viscerally, Stewart said.”
Obama’s Power Play — Politico’s special report
I'll believe it when I see it; until then it's just like Issa's
investigations that do nothing.
If they were doing something, that would be an impeachment vote after a summons for Obama to appear before Congress to answer questions about his ‘executive actions’ and overstepping of his authority.
Instead it is empty votes for empty actions. The only power Congress has over a president who is overreaching authority is summons and impeachment.
PROVE IT, GOP! Because from where I sit you are complicit in this BS. All you do is grand stand and stab us in the back.
Tell us exactly what the GOP plans on doing? I’m curious.
This from a GOP who is too afraid to put Hillary UNDER OATH regarding
Benhgizi. Please do tell us what the GOP plans on doing.
HEY, those hurt!!
I was on my bus going home from high school and these stupid boys were blowing spitballs at me. I finally got SO angry that I got up, went to the back of the bus and KICKED the kid in the shins AS HARD AS I COULD. And I had on those big clunky old school shoes. He HURT!!! He kept laughing, as he was hugging his shin....:o) BAD Catholic high school girl...BAD GIRL! GRRRrrrrrr!!!
I see very little evidence the GOPe wants to STOP Obama. There are a few members who do, no doubt.
Then flush the toilet to sweep the bowl clean of the rest of the RINO creeps...
Utah’s Stewart was on a list as amnesty supporter. I don’t know if he switched back like Raul, Lankford and Poe.
Very strongly witten letter...
The house is lead by and filled mainly with a buch of worthless dung.
“We’ve got the constitution.”
HAHAHA. Like Obama cares about that.
What good is a meaningless resolution???? Either bring legal actions against Obama if you think you have a case or else shut up and go home. Submitting a meaningless resolution saying "Gee, I think we need to do something about this" does absolutely nothing.
No. They’re sending Romney in.
Patriots need to support Congress with impeachment by electing a conservative majority to the Senate in the 2014 elections, hopefully a 2/3 conservative majority.
Lindsey Graham? John McCain?
Texas congressman Stockman has something to say on that matter ....
That painting rips my heart out. Do you happen to have a link so I can share?
Anything that passes the House would get killed in the Senate. Reid and Obama are working hand-in-hand.
That is why Obama keeps bringing up the faux complaint "Congress won't act!" So then he can help himself to more powers.
This is the proper method to go.

It will take years of court proceedings to force Obama to act and then he can just ignore the court order. Biden would do the same.
The federal court today essentially agreed with the ICE agents.
But the court dismissed the court suit today based on a procedural question and not the merits of the case.
So what they need to do is pass comprehensive immigration reform with tough border enforcement and “legalization”. That will give 0bama another opportunity to over-reach; 0bama will only uphold the parts of the law that he likes.
Then the GOP can say, look, he did it again, so that’s proof of over-reaching. The GOP will proudly assert that they were right and ask for your vote.
Obviously this did not come from the GOP Establishment assholes (McConnell, Cornyn, Boehner, Cantor, et al). They have been caving to Dur Fuehrer for the past 5 years and show no signs of growing a pair.
The gop wing of the uniparty is collaborating with dear leader. What makes us think that they will actually S.T.O.P. anything?
Just election year talk. Watch what the other hand is doing. I think it is amnesty.
“Tell us exactly what the GOP plans on doing?”
Perhaps an anti-flag burning amendment is in order.
This has to be a “sarcasm” posting . . . their ain’t no fight in the dog to stop this monster living in our White House. Pigs will fly out of my arse the day the GOP wants to stop anything.
Compare the yellow-spines revealed in this article to the fire-in-the-belly writing of another FR thread: The GOP Pulls Defeat from the Jaws of Victory Because the Can.”
- - - Rather than hammering the administration on its incompetence and criminality, the GOP has elected to give the Democrats an escape hatch on Obamacare and to carry out a bloody civil war over immigration. - - -
Obama rams it through into Law, and loyal Obamacrats Boehner and McConnell make sure that it remains The Law of the Land.
Whatever Obama wants,
Obama gets - - - -
And don’t know
That means YOU!
You’re no exception
To the rule,
Give in - - -
I beg to differ since not a single Republican voted for nobamacare.
So the housewife holds up this restraining order, just before the husband shot her......
