BREAKING! In Historic Vote, House Authorizes Lawsuit Against Lawless Barack Obama

No Democrat voted for it, and five Republican representatives voted against it — the resolution authorizing Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama in federal court.

Details from the Los Angeles Times:

 

The House vote to sue President Obama is the first such legal challenge by a chamber of Congress against a president, and a historic foray in the fight over constitutional checks and balances.

Wednesday’s nearly party-line vote followed a feisty floor debate and offered a fresh example of how the capital’s hyperpartisanship has led both parties into unprecedented territory, going to new and greater lengths to confront one another.

Two years ago, the Republican-led House became the first to hold a sitting Cabinet secretary in contempt of Congress, after lawmakers accused Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. of defying their request to turn over records about the ATF’s Fast and Furious gun-running operation.

Of course, House Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi, were quick to condemn the vote and link it to their latest base-energizing, fundraising scare tactic: Protect the president from IMPEACHMENT!
