Posted on 07/11/2014 3:27:51 AM PDT by opentalk
On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) left out immigration in a draft resolution that authorized the House of Representatives to sue Obama for having "unilaterally changed the employer mandate" in the Obamacare law.
"In 2013, the president changed the health care law without a vote of Congress, effectively creating his own law by literally waiving the employer mandate and the penalties for failing to comply with it," Boehner said. "Thats not the way our system of government was designed to work.
No president should have the power to make laws on his or her own."On June 25, Boehner sent a memo to House colleagues on the separation of powers to preview his lawsuit, and he did not mention immigration then either."

Hey Bone head? Your not gonna get the illegal votes nor the majority of legal Hispanics. Use your head Boner.
I have a list of at least 18 offenses that Obama has committed for which he has not been brought to justice. I’m sure that I’ve forgotten a few.
What an incompetent dork!
Would you expect anything more of him? He’s a joke...not really...he’s an absolute disgrace to the free people of our nation (those that are left).
The GOP is the KabukiENEMY, led by Boehner.
It is time to divest of these criminals who ABET,
CONDONE, ENABLE, and are COMPLICIT.
Seems like pr move to appease/divert public from talking about and demanding action on impeachment
Boehner is more like the Captain of the Washington Generals that used to play against the Harlem Globetrotters. Boehner, McConnell, Graham, McCain,and Cornyn, are the starting five.
What an idiot Boehner is, or perhaps a genius?
He wants to hand the final decision to judge. Boehner doesn’t have the courage to actually vote on the guilt of BHO himself.
What happens of the judge goes with BHO?
Actually, the unfortunate thing is that this is not illegal and that’s why Obama keeps claiming that he’s just “enforcing the law.”
This is a law that was passed two years ago to protect minors from human traffickers by not sending them back immediately upon apprehension and instead investigating the circumstances. It had been found that often they were sent back to the same sex traffickers or other criminal groups that had brought them here in the first place.
The intention of the law was certainly not to create this situation, and Obama is abusing and twisting it, but unfortunately, he’s not doing anything illegal. Immoral, perhaps, but that’s not prosecutable.
Lawsuits can be amended.
The big joke here is the forum shopping that will go on to find an honest (let alone conservative) judge. Which Obama/Clinton appointee will get the case or have to be dodged?
And will this case even be heard before 2016?
