The White House on Wednesday threatened to veto a pair of Republican bills that would impose new limits on the president’s executive powers.
Check it out:
The Enforce the Law Act, sponsored by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), would allow the House or Senate to file a lawsuit against the president for failing to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” Under the law, the challenges would go to a three-judge federal district court panel, with appeals fast-tracked to the Supreme Court.
Gowdy told The Washington Times that President Obama’s “disregard for the law” had “reached an unprecedented level from a constitutional perspective.”
This bill “will give Congress the authority to defend this branch of government as the framers and our fellow citizens would expect,” he said.
