Predictably, the Obama Admin issued their veto threat, standing in firm opposition to faithfully executing the laws passed by Congress.
In a great floor speech, Rep Trey Gowdy excoriated Obama and the Dems, using 2006 and 2008 Obama as a stark contrast to President Obama.
“We all swore an allegiance to the same document that the president swears allegiance to, to faithfully execute the law,” Gowdy continued. “If a president does not faithfully execute the law… what are our remedies?”
He then argued that Congress should do exactly what then-Sen. Obama suggested before he was president of the United States: “To go to the Supreme Court and have the Supreme Court say once and for all: ‘We don’t pass suggestions in this body. … We don’t pass ideas — we pass laws. And we expect them to be faithfully executed.”
