Suing For The Wrong Reason

Republican House Speaker John Boehner and the Republican-dominated House are going to sue President Obama for failing to fulfill his constitutional duties.

As I’ve said, this isn't about Republicans versus Democrats; it’s about the Legislative Branch versus the Executive Branch, and above all protecting the Constitution. The Constitution states that the president must faithfully execute the laws, and spells out that only the Legislative Branch has the power to legislate.

Is this about the administration's extrajudicial killing of American citizens overseas? No.

Is it about the National Security Agency spying on American citizens? No.

It's about delaying the implementation of the employer mandate in the Affordable Care act, a law that the Republican-dominated House did their best to repeal, defund, and delay. Boehner and company have reached a new level of ridiculousness.
