WASHINGTON, December 4 -
Mr. Speaker, the President has taken an oath to uphold the Constitution, but this President has refused to follow and enforce certain laws.
He doesn't enforce all immigration laws. He doesn't enforce the mandatory minimum punishments. He doesn't enforce the work requirement for welfare recipients. He doesn't enforce the marijuana laws.
He illegally made recess appointments. He illegally changed ObamaCare by postponing implementation for Big Business, Small Business and individuals, and granting arbitrary waivers to special people.
He unconstitutionally took America to war in Libya.
All of these actions are unilateral, unlawful, and unconstitutional. The Constitution requires the President to execute and enforce law, not create his own laws or ignore the rule of law. However, this President, the former constitutional law professor, seems to think the Constitution is a mere suggestion, and he will do as he pleases.
And that's just the way it is.
