Whose fault is it when the republicans have sent in proposals after proposals only to see them lay on Reids desk or Barry deny them and then blame them for causing all the problems..

So far, the Judical Branch and the Legislative Branch of our govt has given our President the leeway to do what he has done.

Now what it really at fault here? The President or our Govt as a whole?

Lol..if their is ever a "King Barry" it will be due to the incompetent behavior in Congress.

If the Republicans really think he is breaking the law then they need to do something about it..something real. Why sue the man when you have the power to impeach him? But they are too cowardly to do that or more likely they want their person to have that kind of power when they are the President.

"A liberal commentator said that you can not impeach someone for simply being incompetent. That is why they are suing him."

So, basically put...they don't like him and they are getting back at him.

Obama's comments in January that 2014 would be a "year of action" to implement his priorities, which he said he would do "with or without Congress" by using his "pen and the phone." "Such a shift in power should alarm members of both political parties because it threatens the very institution of the Congress," said a GOP-written report accompanying the legislation.

Republicans have objected that Obama has twice delayed the law's so-called employer mandate, which he did under pressure from business groups. The provision requires companies with 50 or more employees working at least 30 hours weekly to offer health care coverage or pay fines, while businesses with fewer than 50 workers are exempt. The requirement was initially to take effect this year. Now, companies with 50 to 99 employees have until 2016 to comply, while bigger companies have until next year. Republicans say there are other examples of Obama exceeding his powers. These include failing to notify Congress in advance when he traded five Taliban members held at the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for the captive Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, and unilaterally preventing the deportation of some children who illegally immigrated to the U.S. They also point to Obama's comments in January that 2014 would be a "year of action" to implement his priorities, which he said he would do

July 30, 2014 • AP - Republicans are ready to muscle through the lawsuit against President Barack Obama that accuses him of exceeding his powers in enforcing his health care law. Republicans say the House's planned legal action is warranted because Obama has violated his constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws. They say that instead, he has enforced laws as he wants to, dangerously shifting power to the presidency from Congress. "It is to preserve this country, the separation of powers and the rule of law," said Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C. The lawsuit will focus on how Obama has carried out his health care overhaul, a 2010 law that is one of his most prized domestic achievements and that every GOP lawmaker opposed. Republicans say Obama has illegally changed the law using executive actions. The White House and Democrats say he's acted legally and within the latitude he's empowered to use as chief executive. In particular, Republicans have objected that Obama has tw

Maybe it is an election year: The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care — problems that have turned into a growing scandal. Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.

Now all of a sudden Obama thinks our veterans deserve better? Why now and not five years ago?

" He Pelosi and Reid and the liberals have exposed this country to potential destructive forces !"

This is why most moderates don't take certain people seriously. In a nut shell you pretty much said if they aren't conservative, they are ruining the nation.

You can't ignore the fact that the Republicans in Congress have also failed horribly. I mean come on...sue the President?? If they feel he did something impeachable, then they need to fulfill their sworn oaths and do what the Constitution says they should do. What's stopping them from doing what they swore to protect?

OH but the dems LOVE to blame everything on republicans, and Bush. Dems have never extended a good faith effort to get along in the first place !!

There are a number of Republican Bills sent from the House to the Senate sitting on Harry’s desk. Harry will not let them come to a vote. I think one could guess that he is concerned that there is actually enough Bi-Partisan support for some of those bills that they could actually pass the Senate. He is keeping those bills from an up or down vote simply to make it look like nothing is happening in the House.

So mod, that is why we need to elect more republicans and get rid of Reid and his self-inflicted grid lock.

He CAN and SHOULD be impeached for not upholding his SWORN oath of not protecting and faithfully executing the articles of the Constitution !!

I agree beright. How a president can go visit Texas during a border crisis and get on TV that same afternoon and tell the press that he needs 3.7B dollars to deal with the crisis or it is all the republicans fault - is something I have NEVER heard from any other president in history. I would like for him to shut the f%*& up and tell the press "we are gonna go get together in DC and work it out with the emphasis on what is BEST for the country !!!!""" Never ever heard him say anything like that on ANY crisis...

I would certainly like to make sure an amnesty provision in NOT included in any immigration bill. I would like a true investigation as to why the ACA still has left 40 million people uninsured after all the hoopla has died down and why the magic number was eight million signups. I would like a jobs bill passed that in not simply a union subsidy. I would like a highway bill that actually is about repairing highways. I would stop giving money to Hamas. I would start funding NASA again. I would stop funding illegal immigration. I would like a senate leader that would bring bills to the floor of the senate for a vote. That is enough for a start.

"If the Republicans get control of the senate and maintain the house, maybe we can get something done."

Doubtful..the Dems will do to them what they've been doing all this time..obstruction. Even if something would get past Congress, Obama would probably veto it and that would be the end of it.
