From America’s Freedom Fighters

Finally, we’re starting to see Congress get warmed up in enforcing the separation of powers and checks and balances system that our Framers designed. The House is beginning to push back against Obama’s overreach and refusal to faithfully execute our laws.
Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has been a leader in Congress in going after Obama’s imperial presidency for his unilateral moves and executive tyranny. He’s sponsored a bill, along with 100+ others, called the ENFORCE the Law Act, which as he explained would authorize Congress to sue Obama over the modification of the laws of Congress and his refusal to enforce those laws which he doesn’t like.
The ENFORCE the Law Act just passed the House of Representatives by a 233 to 81 vote, with 5 Democrats joining Republicans in protesting Obama’s unconstitutional actions. This is great news.
The Washington Free Beacon writes:
H.R. 4138, sponsored by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.), would authorize the House or Senate to sue the executive branch for not enforcing laws and provide an expedited process through federal district courts. The bill is one of several the House GOP is pushing to combat the “imperial presidency.”
Republicans say the legislation is necessary in light of the numerous administrative actions taken by President Barack Obama to change and selectively enforce laws, including immigration, marriage, welfare rules, and his signature legislative achievement, Obamacare.
The administration has unilaterally altered Obamacare at least 20 times. Most recently, the Wall Street Journal reported that millions have been exempted from the individual mandate due to a rule change.
The administration also announced last week that individuals would be able to keep their so-called “substandard” health insurance plans that do not comply with Obamacare until October 2017.
Additionally, Obama unilaterally instituted the Dream Act by creating a deferred action program for young illegal immigrants and changed work requirements in welfare.
We’ve written extensively documenting Obama’s continued unilateral modification of the laws of Congress. He thinks that he is above the legislative process and can act on his own whenever he thinks it’s necessary. As even liberals are now admitting, this is causing a constitutional crisis unlike anything we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes.
This bill is a great first step to fighting Obama, but what really needs to happen is full impeachment. Let’s see if we can start a movement to impeach Obama by spreading the word about how the House is taking its first major steps towards ending his monarchical presidency.
