    $350,000 to sue President Obama

    House Republicans will pay up to $350,000 to sue President Obama, according to a contract Chair of the House Administration Committee Candice Miller (R-Mich.) signed Monday with Washington legal firm BakerHostetler.
    The GOP leadership intends to sue the president over the alleged abuse of his executive authority, particularly over the changes in the employer mandate under the Affordable Care Act.

    And this is nothing compared to what Obama has spent on these goodies: Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting scandal, the NSA scandal, the AP phone records scandal, the VA hospitals scandal, the Stimulus Package, Solyndra, illegal immigration, ObamaCare, unimaginable National Debt, and, well, you get the idea...but will these money spending and effort be successful?

    All of that is a waste of money, however Obama can not spend money that Congress does not give him to spend. Both parties throw away enormous amounts of tax dollars.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    You should probably note that it said that House Republicans will spend that money. IE: They're spending it out of the republican parties coffers. Not tax money but money donated to the republican party.

    How else is the legislative branch supposed to stop the executive branch from violating the law? Or start enforcing the law? One could argue that even if they win they have no physical power to force the Exec to actually obey the decision, but maybe it would then be grounds for impeachment. Though how could they enforce that?

    The lawsuit or all the other stuff mentioned that Obama did? He has spent considerably more than the cost of the lawsuit on vacations alone.

    That should be amended. He is not supposed to be able to spend without Congress, but he does.

    The article that's linked to says that the House will pay a law firm $500.00/day for this law suit.

    The GOP doesn't own the House of Representatives.

    Explain that.

    So that excuses wasting more money? Look if this was trying to impeach the president, I wouldn't agree with it but I would have more respect for it. This lawsuit accomplishes nothing and is just a waste of money. It's all a game of political theater and is a waste of money. Your excuse for this is basically "Well he did it, so we can to".
