Just when you think it’s impossible for the Republican Party’s obstructionism to get any more absurd and ridiculous, John Boehner releases the details of his plan to sue President Obama.
The GOP have spent the last couple of years demonizing the Affordable Care Act as the most nightmarish socialist scheme ever imposed on America. So now they’re going to sue Obama for not imposing it quickly enough.
You can’t make this stuff up; no one would believe it.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) on Thursday revealed that he plans to sue President Barack Obama for his unilateral delay of the Obamacare employer mandate.
The Speaker unveiled a two-page bill that he plans to advance through the House, declaring a right of action to sue the president for exceeding his authority.
“Today we’re releasing a draft resolution that will authorize the House to file suit over the way President Obama unilaterally changed the employer mandate,” Boehner said in a statement. “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. That’s 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.”
