In the wake of announced executive action, more elected representatives have come forward to warn of an unprecedented power grab by the president.
Appearing on Fox News Friday, Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) said Obama has “gone rogue” and that the only way to stop the subversion of the Constitutional process is to pursue legal action.
“I would prefer not to hire an attorney. Nobody wants to do this, but what do you do when you have a chief executive who has gone rogue?” Schock said, referring to the change in federal law regarding employer mandates as part of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare.
Republicans announced the initiation of a lawsuit Friday, with House speaker John Boehner saying “Time after time, the president has chosen to ignore the will of the American people and rewrite federal law on his own without a vote of Congress.”
“There is a lot of the things that the Democrats when they passed it, they gave great leniency to the president and the administration to change the rules, and come up with the rules and have the latitude to change them…,” Congressman Schock added Friday, explaining that the aim of the lawsuit is to show that Congress has “standing,” rather than trying to repeal Obamacare.
Schock also indicated that the action on Obamacare will likely be followed by similar action regarding the amnesty executive order, announced Friday.
“It will play into what we do on immigration with what he has just done illegally with an executive order, pushing on him trying to do legislation,” he said.
