While President Obama tries to usurp Congress authority by passing legislation via executive fiat, at least eight members of Congress are offering to help him along with the scheme.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, recently announced the formation of the Congressional Full Employment Caucus, saying its members would give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign, according to CNS News.
We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work, and were not doing right by them by creating work, Lee said in a Jan. 29 speech at a gathering of Democratic lawmakers. I believe this caucus will put us on the right path, and well give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.
Apparently, despite her 19 years in Congress, Lee has yet to learn that the only work she can create is in her own office. Nonetheless, she plowed ahead.
In fact, I think that should be our No. 1 agenda, she said. Lets write up these executive orders draft them, of course and ask the president to stand with us on full employment.
Watch her speech via MRC-TV:
The Congressional Full Employment Caucus was launched last week by Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich. Other members are: Reps. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla.; Charles Rangel, D-N.Y.; Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; Barbara Lee, D-Calif.; José Serrano, D-N.Y.; and Mike Quigley, D-Ill.
"Executive orders issued by a president have the full force of law and do not have to receive approval by the legislative branch of government. During his State of The Union address last week, President Obama made clear he was willing to use executive actions to sidestep Congress."
The caucus members are willingly abdicating their own authority to propose and pass laws, destroying the principles of separation and balance of power Americas republic is based on.
Since this is unconstitutional, can the House vote to expel these members?
I can’t help but wonder, what is she talking about?
How about the Government hire people to hold Guam up and keep it from flipping over? $10.10 an hour tropical paradise. Must like the beach!
“...people need work, and were not doing right by them by creating work,
This woman is dumb as a rock, frightening that she has been in Congress so many years and still doesn’t grasp republican democracy, the legislative process and THE CONSTITUTION. Her constituents are dumb as rocks, too.
A select group of Democrats from the Congressional Black Caucus have resolved to draft enabling acts for their god to rule over AmeriKKKa.
Cain’t pass no lawz....so de Execumative Order thing’s gonna have to be it. Fo’ the shizzle......
She said what she meant and meant what she said!
apparently its the governments job to employ people....
As an amateur rock petrologist (enthusiast), you much malign them. J’accuse!
HUH? What is this citiot blathering about? If they are Executive Orders, why is Congress going to create them? Methinks this low-IQ grandee does not know how the US Federal government is supposed to work.
Great, SJL just proved her district does not need representation.
You are right. I owe the rocks a retraction and apology: Je n’ai pas l’intention de vous offenser. Veuillez m’excuser. Le bat merde aliéné femme m’a amené à être confus et peu judicieuse. :)
This is exactly how African thugocracies are run. One strongman surrounded by incompetent, corrupt yesmen. Only in this case, I think that Hussein is merely the figurehead for the real strongman/strongmen.
Anything to git whitey.
