    “Imperial Presidency” perfectly describes what the Obama administration has become as it increasingly violates the limits on its power defined by the U.S. Constitution. Criticisms of how President Obama is overstepping his authority are now being heard from all sides of the political spectrum.

    A remarkable 33-page report posted on the Internet by the Majority Leader of the House, Eric Cantor, proves how imperial the Obama administration has become. This easy-to-read report, which can be downloaded by anyone, details dozens of examples of how the current occupant of the White House is exercising powers the Constitution doesn’t give him.
    This report accurately explains that “there is no excuse for this continuous disregard of legislative authority and the Constitutionally-required separation of powers.” Yet President Obama and some Democrats even brag about their Imperial Presidency: “the President has proudly acknowledged that he has acted without Congress, contending that he has no other alternative.”

    Examples of Obama overstepping congressional authority include his creation of new laws outside of the legislative process. In direct violation of the fact that the Constitution vests “all” federal legislative powers in Congress, Obama has attempted to impose onerous, new global warming regulations on businesses costing billions of dollars and many lost jobs, despite the widespread discrediting of liberal hysteria claiming a global warming crisis.
    Rep. Cantor’s online report also explains how President Obama has been “ignoring the plain letter of the law and failing to faithfully execute the laws.” In direct violation of the successful, bipartisan 1996 Welfare Reform Act, Obama unconstitutionally waived the modest work requirements for people who receive welfare handouts.

    The work requirement in the federal law is an essential protection against abuse of the welfare system, but Obama simply ignored the law and removed the work requirement on his own say-so. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the lead perpetrator of the Boston Marathon bombing, was reportedly supported by state welfare benefits even though he was trained to be a terrorist intent on murdering Americans.

    Eric Cantor’s report describes how Barack Obama has repeatedly violated immigration law. Obama acted “systematically, on an ongoing basis, [to] block illegal aliens from being placed into removal proceedings, stop already-initiated removal proceedings, and end deportations for potentially large numbers of criminal aliens.”

    For years Obama refused to stand up for the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), the important bipartisan federal protection for traditional marriage that was overwhelmingly passed by Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton. Then he instructed Attorney General Holder not to defend DOMA in court even though the Constitution makes it the duty of the President to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

    The Obama administration has adopted a new kind of imperial presidency known as Government by Waiver. Obama issued numerous waivers of statutory provisions in Obamacare in an attempt to get the Democrats past the next election.
    Obama has already issued waivers to at least 35 states from the impossible-to-meet targets of the now-expired No Child Left Behind law on condition that the states adopt the hated Common Core standards.

    Without any constitutional authority, the Democrat-controlled Congress created “super agencies” in 2010 whose immense powers are exempt from Congressional or judicial oversight. The 15-member Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) is a “death panel” with the power to decide which health care services will be reimbursed by Medicare, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has power to “withdraw hundreds of millions of dollars from the Federal Reserve to support its operations.”
    As solutions to the problem of the Imperial Presidency, Cantor’s online report offers two new laws: the Faithful Execution of the Law Act (H.R.3973) and the ENFORCE the Law Act (H.R.4138). The first would require federal officials who refuse to enforce a federal law to inform Congress and provide a reason; the second would enable the House or Senate to sue the Obama administration to compel it to faithfully implement the law, with expedited review by the courts.
    These measures are a good first step, but the House needs to more effectively use its constitutional control of the purse-strings and its exclusive power to propose revenue-raising laws. The House can hold hearings so Americans will know how the Imperial Presidency is using taxpayers’ money to violate the Constitution and advance a leftwing agenda.
    The House can also pass more bills to reduce funding for specific federal operations. Such actions by the House can lay the groundwork for the election of a Republican Senate in the fall so a new Congress will be positioned to halt more dangerous erosion of the Constitution by the Imperial Presidency.

    Introduction
    In October of 2012, my office released a 33-page report documenting the rise of the “Imperial Presidency.” The report cited over 40 separate examples of the break-down in the rule of law under the Obama Administration. As the report noted at the time, the break-down in the rule of law not only was of significant constitutional concern, but also negatively impacted economic growth and individual prosperity.

    Unfortunately, since the release of that first report, the pattern of overreach by the Executive Branch has only continued. The President has even gone so far as to embrace a “pen and phone” approach to his office which suggests he need not follow the established constitutional and legal framework under which our government is supposed to operate. Nowhere is this more apparent than when the Administration decides that as a matter of policy they will not enforce the laws of our nation.

    The following addendum to the original “Imperial Presidency” report details other recent pronouncements from the Administration regarding their refusal to enforce the law and in addition provides examples of where the courts have been stepping in to uphold the rule of law.

    Since becoming the majority party in the House of Representatives in 2011, House Republicans have considered numerous pieces of legislation dealing with specific situations where the Administration is ignoring the law, attempting to rewrite the law, or refusing to enforce the law. In some cases the Congressional spotlight and the threat of legislative action has caused the Administration to back down. For example, the National Labor Relations Board ultimately dropped its push to tell a private company where it could locate its facilities. And just this week, as the House was prepared to vote on a bill to overturn a proposed Administration rule that would dramatically alter the way the prescription drug program under Medicare operates in a way that would hurt seniors, the Administration announced that they would no longer pursue its proposed rule.

    But the sustained pattern of willfully refusing to enforce the law as written, has demonstrated that a more comprehensive approach is necessary. This week the House will consider two bills reported by the Judiciary Committee to restore the proper balance of power and protect our constitutional system. The first bill ensures that Congress and the American people are notified whenever any Administration official implements a formal or informal policy to not enforce a provision of law. The second establishes an expedited process for either the House or Senate to go to court to compel the Administration to enforce the law as written. More specifically:

    Faithful Execution of the Law Act:
    The Faithful Execution of the Law Act (H.R. 3973) strengthens current law and promotes transparency and honesty in the federal government by requiring all federal officials who establish or implement a formal or informal policy to refrain from enforcing a federal law to report to Congress on the reason for the non-enforcement.

    The ENFORCE the Law Act:
    The Executive Needs to Faithfully Observe and Respect Congressional Enactments of the Law (ENFORCE the Law) Act (H.R. 4138) will help rein in the growing problem of executive overreach and restore balance to the separation of powers enshrined in our Constitution. Specifically, the ENFORCE the Law Act puts a procedure in place to permit the House, or the Senate, to authorize a lawsuit against the Executive Branch for failure to faithfully execute the laws. The legislation also provides for expedited consideration of any such lawsuit, first through a three-judge panel at the federal district court level and then by providing for direct appeal to the United States Supreme Court.

    This expedited review is crucial in order to ensure that when a lawsuit is brought against the Administration to enforce our laws, the courts not only grant Congress standing, but also hear the case on an expedited timeline to prevent the President from stalling the litigation until his term is up. In addition, the bill statutorily mandates that the courts set aside their own court-created standing rules and thereby prevents courts from using procedural excuses to avoid making decisions in these important separation of powers cases.

    Excellent post, but the question remains: When is congress going to do what they must from these recorded instances? It. Is. On. Fucking. RECORD these constitutional violations.
