Boehner says he plans to sue Obama

By The Associated Press

This article was published June 25, 2014 at 12:11 p.m.

WASHINGTON — Speaker John Boehner says he intends to file a lawsuit accusing President Barack Obama of failing to carry out the laws passed by Congress.

The suit would be filed on behalf of the Republican-controlled House.

Boehner provided no details of the claims to be made in the suit. He privately briefed members of his rank and file on his plans on Tuesday.

Republicans have long accused Obama of selectively enforcing the health care law that bears his name, and doing the same with immigration legislation long on the books.

At his weekly news conference, the speaker said the Constitution makes it clear the president's job is to faithfully execute the law.

The president could counter sue for Congress putting roadblocks up to HIS plans for a better America.. Boehner himself refuses to let the unemployment bill come before the House and the Republicans in the Senate block passage of bills that have the support of the majority by insisting on a super majority (60 out of 100 votes) to avoid their filibusters..!!!

No way a court gets involved in that BS, except by dismissing or abstaining. Funny that the Repubs are invoking the "activist" judiciary though.

Read read the constitution folks (especially Aimee). Congress passes laws (not dictator Obama with his pen and phone) and the executive branch takes an oath to enforce those laws. If a repub pulled as much S#!7 as Obama, he would have been impeached several years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Constitution assumed that there would be a Congress that would actually GOVERN.. Republicans who control it by a Gerrymandered majority in the House and by a Filibuster threatening minority in the Senate is NOT governing.. This is the least productive Congress ever..!!! They can't even pass measures to keep the government operating..

Why do people who oppose government run for office..??? Why don't they allow those who want to govern to get on with it..???

Again, Dylan had it right - Get out of the way "if you can't lend a hand"..!!!
