WASHINGTON - The Washington media hasn't given both sides of the story on a vote the U.S. House took last Friday launching a lawsuit against President Obama, and the issue is so important Congressman Peter Roskam (R-06) wants the Illinois Review audience to be fully informed.
The lawsuit is to appeal to the judicial branch to clarify the balance of power America's Founding Fathers so carefully set. President Obama has time and time again changed federal law without Congressional agreement, Roskam said. The president attempted to bypass Congress with National Labor Relations Board appointments and was corrected by a unanimous U.S. Supreme Court decision.
DC pundits and Democrats are referring to last Friday's vote as a "political stunt," but Roskam and his GOP colleagues are dead serious.
"President Obama has set a dangerous precedent for any future president to summarily ignore the Congress, ignore the law and the will of the American people - and it's got to stop," Roskam says in this exclusive video. "This week the House of Representatives took an historic step. We voted to restore the rule of law by filing a lawsuit against President Obama for overstepping his legal authority."
