"Not only does the President regulate more of the law, he brags about it, and he brags about his willingness to change it unilaterally...first this administration makes the wrong decision then won't give the American people a straight answer." House Speaker John Boehner, June 25, 2014.
In an op-ed released over the weekend, Speaker of the House John Boehner says he is going ahead with plans to ask a bipartisan legal advisory group to draft legislation paving the way for a lawsuit against President Obama.
The speaker won't say which specific executive orders he's targeting, but says the President has made an "end run" around the American people and members of congress on healthcare, energy, and foreign policy matters.
"If you look at the overall scope of what Obama has done is it true that he has pushed the boundaries of executive power? Absolutely, but it's also true that every president does this ... George Washington did this. If you look at the Administration of Andrew Jackson there are political cartoons of Jackson in the robes of a monarch trampling the constitution," says Mayer.
Meanwhile, FOX19 examined a comprehensive presidential timeline compiled by bipartisan think tank The Brookings Institute, and found that not only has President Obama issued fewer executive orders than President George Bush (43), he's averaged the fewest of any president since Grover Cleveland dating back more than a century.
Should Boehner convince his colleagues in the house that pursuing a lawsuit against President Obama is worthwhile legislation, he would then have to convince a democratically controlled senate. Should the legislation somehow manage to pass both houses of congress it would then go to the president's desk where it would be destined for veto.
