30 members support the House Resolution calling for civil action.
1:49 PM, DEC 12, 2013 • BY DANIEL HALPER

Congressman Tom Rice of South Carolina, a Republican, is sponsoring a resolution in the House of Representatives that would, if adopted, direct the legislative body "to bring a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch." In other words, Rep. Rice wants to take President Obama to court for not faithfully executing the laws.

"President Obama has adopted a practice of picking and choosing which laws he wants to enforce. In most cases, his laws of choice conveniently coincide with his Administration’s political agenda. Our Founding Fathers created the Executive Branch to implement and enforce the laws written by Congress and vested this power in the President. However, President Obama has chosen to ignore some of the laws written by Congress and implemented by preceding Presidents," Rice wrote in a letter to fellow House members to ask them to co-sponsor this resolution.

"This resolution allows the House of Representatives to bring legal action against the Executive Branch and challenge recent actions, inactions, and policies."

The "legal action against the President" would be, according to an aide for Rep. Rice, "for ignoring Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution." Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution states,

He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper; he shall receive ambassadors and other public ministers; he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States.

Obama has repeatedly overgoose-stepped his authority.
Almost from the beginning. I'm amazed it's taken 5 years to get up the guts to do something about it.

Considering the piece of chicago gutter trash is impeachment proof, the courts are the only alternative. But what could be done if he refuses to abide by the decision of the court? Do you think a judge will have the balls to find a sitting president in contempt and jailing the sob? I seriously doubt it.

Congressmen know the Court wouldn't touch that case, it would be similar to Obama taking the House to Court for not doing their job. Another waste of time, and money, all for political purposes.

No, congressman don't know that. With Hussein's approval ratings sinking faster than the Titanic, I think just about anything can happen at this point. I don't see this going on for another three years without nothing being done about it.

I read the entire article and the examples they used are spot on. Stuff even the Democrats can't dispute.

And the only thing about you pathetic little obamabots that are still left supporting this turd is, you're numbers are getting real thin. Everyone else is jumping the sinking odumbo ship. Only the truly ignorant, brain dead, fully indoctrinated and programmed little tards like yourself are left still thinking Barry is untouchable. Not everyone is as dumb as you people. The majority know when to wake up and smell the coffee, and that IS what's happening.

If Congressmen don't know the history of the Court they shouldn't be in government. The Court has said in more than one case: that's a political decision, not judicial.

Obama is the threat to liberty that the Constitution was designed to contain.

Let's hope it's not too late...

I think the Republicans should make a go of it. The closer to the 2014 election the better. I'm sure it will help them in the polls.

Forget about politics for a minute. Answer this ... do you really think that this will even make it to the floor, let alone lead to a vote?
