House Speaker John Boehner threatens a lawsuit over Obama’s use of executive orders. I’m for it.
The public does not understand executive orders. Any bad publicity given to them is positive. There are over 13,000 of them. They let a President create laws without Congress.
They are mentioned in the Constitution. They have been used for a century to thwart Congress. They are an abomination.
If the Republicans set a precedent for suing Obama, then the Democrats can do it to a Republican President. This would be positive.
They should all be abolished by law. But I would accept a compromise. Abolish them by executive order. That is an executive order I would approve of. It would be legal, too. I wrote an article on this in 2011: “Ron Paul’s Inaugural Address.”
