U.S. Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA) Says Obama Was "WISE" To Use Executive Orders...Submitted by pawnstorm12 on Thu, 01/17/2013 - 17:59
On the radio this morning I heard Congressman Jim McDermott say this:
"Obama made a wise decision to create new laws with 23 Executive Orders BECAUSE CONGRESS WOULD LIKELY HAVE NOT PASSED THEM AS LAW IF GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY"
This statement DIRECTLY DISREGARDS the procedures required in the U.S. Constitution to make law, in effect, giving the president king-like powers.
THIS statement came from an elected official (U.S. Congressman) who TOOK AN OATH to UPHOLD the Constitution of the United States.
But our constitution says that ONLY CONGRESS has the power to legislate.
Both Obama AND McDermott should be impeached on charges of usurping the very law they took an oath to uphold and defend.
They swore on a bible in front of witnesses.
How much more clear can it be that these elected officials have broken their oaths?
