    WASHINGTON, June 25 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker John Boehner said on Wednesday he is planning to file a lawsuit alleging that President Barack Obama has abused his executive authority by implementing policies without congressional approval.
    How can an overly sensitive wimp come up with something like this? did he drink some tea or something?

    Nice dodge.

    it is about time someone decided to put at stop to that the non-sense going on up there.
    obama changes every law he doesn't like which is illegal and against the constitution he doesn't have the power to change and create law yet he does it anyway.
    took them long enough.

    Just to be clear, are you talking about Boehner or Obama here?

    Boehner sure likes to rise to the occasion. But can he hold it up?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Re: Boehner plans to file suit against Obama over alleged abuse of executive power

    I'm actually in support of this. The article includes this quote, ""My view is the president has not faithfully executed the laws," he said. "What we have seen clearly over the last five years is an effort to erode the power of the Legislative Branch." That's ridiculous. The previous administration was an eight year effort to expand the power of the Executive at the expense of the legislative, that built on the roughly entire post-Watergate period, and Obama has continued that same trajectory.

    But if the GOP files a good faith lawsuit to test the boundaries, that's a good thing IMO. I kind of doubt the suit will be anything more than red meat to the masses, if it's ever filed, but I would like to be surprised. These are important question on the separation of powers.

    Just one more observation, much of the problem rests with modern governance. The EPA, for example, is empowered by the legislation to broad discretion to accomplish its mandate. CONGRESS granted that power, and the SC has upheld the EPA's authority, regularly. It's a little disingenuous for Congress to complain that the Executive branch is exercising powers the Congress granted it. Congress can terminate those powers the same way they were granted, with legislation. The same thing happens with tax law. Congress writes a few lines, then delegates to the Executive branch - Treasury - the power to develop regulations that accomplish the goals of the law. These are BROAD powers, but they're delegated by Congress to Executive. They could, if they wanted, simply write the regulations themselves or legislatively amend them, which happens often enough.

    The ACA granted a great deal of discretion to the Executive branch to carry out the ACA's mandates. Maybe Obama has gone too far - who knows. But testing that in court is a fine thing IMO.

    How about a do nothing congress with an approval rating lower than the president.

    Yes, we all know Rick Perry types would like to have dismantled the EPA.

    The ACA was passed as law, not EO.
