Do You Agree With John Boehner’s Plan to File a Lawsuit Against President Obama? [POLL]

Last week Speaker John Boehner announced that he would file a lawsuit challenging President Obama’s use of executive actions. According to FOX News, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee accused Obama of “trampling upon” the constitutional authority given to Congress.

“This is all about the United States Constitution,” Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., told “Fox News Sunday.”

Goodlatte rejected Democratic criticism that the lawsuit announced by Boehner amounts to an election-year political stunt. He cited a presidential pattern of “not enforcing laws, or changing laws that have been passed, taking power from the Legislative Branch.”

This, he said, runs afoul of Article 1 of the Constitution which grants legislative powers to Congress.

“We … have the power to bring causes of action when we believe that the president of the United States is exceeding his authority and is trampling upon Article 1 of the Constitution,” Goodlatte said.  “To me, it makes a whole lot of sense to do this.”
