Barack Obama John Boehner

Calls lawsuit ‘stunt’

27 Jun, 2014

Obama tells George Stephanopoulos that House Speaker Boehner’s plans to file a lawsuit against him is “a stunt.”

You know, the suit is a stunt. But what I’ve told Speaker Boehner directly is, ‘If you’re really concerned about me taking too many executive actions, why don’t you try getting something done through Congress?

Republicans say the President breaches his constitutional power by side-stepping the legislative process. They say Obama uses executive actions as a way to bypass the divided Congress. The Republican-controlled House has passed two bills aimed at curbing executive orders by the President.
