‘DOES WHAT HE WANTS’ – Obama hammered for end-runs around Congress

We need more ways to stop Obama.
Check it out:

President Obama has repeatedly pledged, “If Congress refuses to act, I’ll do everything in my power to act without them,” and as he makes good on his promise it’s sparking criticism from both the right and left.

At a House Judiciary Committee hearing this week, GOP lawmakers repeatedly expressed frustration with the president’s end-runs around Congress on everything from non-enforcement of immigration laws to massive re-writes of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., says the president, “doesn’t have a debate in the Oval Office about what he wants to do,” adding, “he does what he wants to do, and then you no longer have representative democracy.”

George Washington University law professor and Obama supporter Jonathan Turley says he’s troubled by the expansion of executive power under both President George W. Bush and now President Obama.
