    Bill to STOP Executive Orders

    What is the status of these Bills? If still active, time to encourage the Senate & Congress to get it done!

    Stockman introduces bill to stop Obama’s Executive Orders

    Jan 23, 2013

    Press Release

    Working with Sen. Rand Paul, ‘Restore the Constitution Act’ blocks any Executive Order that violates Constitution

    WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas 36) introduced today the “Restore The Constitution Act.” It is the House companion to Sen. Rand Paul’s “Separation of Powers Restoration and Second Amendment Protection Act.” Stockman and Paul are working together on the joint effort.

    “Last week I promised to thwart Obama’s unlawful orders, first by seeking to block, overturn and defund any action that violates the Constitution,” said Stockman. “Promise made, promise kept. No matter his intentions, the Constitution flatly prohibits the President from just making up his own laws.”

    “The Orders issued by President Obama are not intended to execute laws passed by the Congress. President Obama is abusing his authority to write his own unaccountable laws. Regardless of your position on gun rights, Congress has an obligation to assert its constitutional authority as the only lawful rulemaking body,” said Stockman.

    If passed, the Restore The Constitution Act would declare any past, present or future executive action that infringes on the powers and duties of Congress in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, or the Second Amendment to the Constitution or that would require the expenditure of federal funds not specifically appropriated for the purpose of executive action, is advisory only and has no force or effect unless enacted by law.

    “Executive action” includes any Executive order, memoranda, proclamation or signing statement. Any executive action in violation can be challenged in federal court by any member of the U.S. House or Senate, the highest-ranking official of any state or political subdivision or their designee, or any person deprived of liberty or property by an executive action.

    If this passed, can you imagine the smile on his face when he vetoes it?

    The vacationer-in-chief will veto the bill. Congress will need enough votes to over-ride the veto.

    I have serious doubts the bill will go anywhere.

    Can you imagine the anger if his veto was overridden?
