Ignoring President Barack Obamaís veto threat, the House voted on Wednesday for a bill that would expedite congressional lawsuits against the chief executive for failure to enforce federal laws.
The vote was 233-181 in the Republican-led House as GOP lawmakers excoriated Obama for multiple changes to his 4-year-old health care law, steps heís taken to allow young immigrants to remain in the United States and the administrationís resistance to defend the federal law banning gay marriage.

After the nobamacare case...isn’t Gowdy being naive to expect the Supreme Court to rule as based on the Constitution?
He’s a hero and they should ALL be like him..!!!!
We have our braveheart.
That’s precisely Mark Levin’s point. Bringing such a case before the USSC in effect and in fact imbues that body with the power to...what...correct its’ own misdeeds? You’re exactly right.
This is the WORST WRITING ever.
Did it pass ... or not?
Seems like it would be pretty hard for the dems to vote against this one. They all swear to protect and defend the Constitution. It’s unbelievable that we have gotten to the point where this kind of bill even has to be written.
You don’t “sue” the President when he violates the law. You IMPEACH him.
I think this whole congressional bill stuff is just a smoke screen. They should not need a bill in order to sue the President in court for not upholding the law.
I do not think this bill will ever see the light of day in the Senate, with Reid running the show.
I would say, yes he is. I will never again expect a ruling based on the Constitution from the Supreme Court unless said ruling benefits the Democrat Party. On November 4, 2008 the Constitutional Republic of the United States became a banana republic by the will of the voters.
Exactly. The fact they have to do this in the first place, is bad. It appears, from the vote, that a lot of rats opposed it. It just confirms what we have known for years, that they really ARE evil, scum sucking Rats, with a capital R.
I want to know why he has not filed articles. I appreciate he’s one of the better ones. But we have a remedy for Obama. Impeachent. I don’t want excuses about his blackness or upcoming elections. I want the constitution upheld.
I also don’t care if Bhoner tries burying it. Leaders lead. Without fear.
I don’t know what it is about the word but I really like the word “excoriated”.
So? What difference does that make? The houses' job is to write up the articles and vote to send it to the senate. The house isn't doing their job and that's why their approval numbers are even lower than Obama's
He should have taken on Linda Gayham. He’d have CRUSHED him.
Gowdy might be the real deal.
Name one successful leader in history that ever let “maybe” be his guiding light. No one can. Because any leader that does is never successful and is not a leader to begin with.
This is the ultimate outcome of accepting the lesser evil mentality. All these lesser evils people accepted added up to today. And the majority would rather kick the can again as always in the hopes that we can make it to the election.
And then what? Elect more lesser evil ‘no matter what’, that will kick it again? Really?
I get a ton of sXit from people saying “Well whats YOUR plan? Simple Follow the damn Constitution and quit hiding alike a coward.
Unless cowardice isn’t the real issue. Which I now believe is the case. The real issue is they do not impeach because the GOP is not the opposition party at all. Just actors playing their role as the fall guys to ease the rest of us into accepting the hopelessness of our conservative beliefs.
Evidence points that way.
He’s my congressman. Come on down. Greenville, SC is a great city.
I believe you are correct.
