Rise of the “Uber-President”: Obama Rewrites Laws, Ignores the Constitution
Wednesday, December 4, 2013
Yesterday the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing to examine the constitutionality of Obama’s executive use of powers.
During the hearing, titled “The President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws,” experts discussed the president’s role in our constitutional system.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News that Obama has been altering and changing laws enacted by Congress, and overstepped his legal authority when he made changes to Obamacare.
“Our constitutional law professor president needs a refresher course on the separation of powers provisions in our United States Constitution,” said Goodlatte, a Republican from Virginia.
Goodlatte said Obama has also made changes to other laws, including some on immigration, EPA regulations, and “a whole host of other areas.”
