Republican congressman: Obama ‘setting the stage for something very dangerous in the future’
December 24, 2013
Obama has been a historically bad President in many ways and the precedents he’s setting are one of the worst parts of it. The Blaze reports:
President Barack Obama’s strengthening of the executive branch may jeopardize America’s future, Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) told an online conservative news outlet.
“I think it’s scary the direction the government is going, regardless of whether you have a Republican President or a Democratic President,” Amash told The Daily Caller. “We have an executive branch that is getting way too powerful, and President Obama is setting the stage for something very dangerous in the future.”
The libertarian firebrand added that it is the responsibility of Congress to put a check on the executive branch’s power.
“I think as a Congress we need to step up and point out and take charge and point out when the President is going beyond his constitutional powers, which is frequent, and we have got to do something about it and we haven’t done that as a Congress,” he reportedly said.
