President Obama has been going outside his constitutional authority and ignoring his legal responsibilities for years, and it’s been getting progressively worse since his last State of the Union address, when he told the world that he was going to nullify Congress and use executive orders to create any law he pleases.
After years of sitting on its thumbs, the House of Representatives is finally looking at proposals to rein in the runaway president.
According to The Hill, the House will take up a two-part proposal next week.
One part is called the Enforce Act, H.R. 4138. According to The Hill, the act would “allow the House or Senate to authorize legal action against the administration’s willful neglect of the law.”
The second part, called the Faithful Execution of the Law Act, H.R. 3973, would require the government to make a report every time an existing federal law is ignored and explain why it was done.
