Ever since President Barack Obama’s Affordable Healthcare Act passed, it has been met with both positively and negatively, as mentioned in multiple reports here on The Inquisitr. Some of our reports include Obamacare surviving a tax challenge despite it only being popular among 40 percent of Americans. We also reported on a case in which doctors wouldn’t take a single case of an individual who had health insurance from the new law.
Now there are reports of the House of Representatives suing President Barack Obama for the abuse of his power… and the abuse has to do with Obamacare.
According to an article by The New York Times, the House of Representatives voted, 225 to 201 in favor of a lawsuit against the president on Wednesday. This move has angered conservatives for being insufficient, but emboldened liberals who say the president’s critics are too vengeful. Nevertheless, this won’t do any good for the relationship between Capitol Hill and the White House, which has already been branded by numerous news outlets as an eroded beyond repair.
The reason Obamacare is the primary point for the lawsuit is that Barack Obama’s application of it is argued to be selective and intended to delay the law’s most undesirable aspects. Before the vote was passed, both sides took passionate stances for and against the Bill in several heated debates.
Republicans accused Obama of flouting the law and breaking a solemn constitutional oath by changing a law passed by Congress and signed by the President. They claim only Congress has the authority to make changes to a bill, and therefore, the changes made by the president are illegal and unconstitutional.
In a parallel article by ABC, Democrats have made their voice heard in stating that the GOP is chomping at the bit to impeach the president. Even the White House had made their voice known when White House Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer emailed the following to Obama’s supporters:
“This is the least productive Congress in decades. And instead of doing their job, they are suing the president for doing his.”
It is also reported this majority vote to sue the president is a huge step in curbing Obama’s supposed abuse of power. Republicans are now calling their supporters to contribute to end Obama’s executive overreach by expanding their Republican majority in the House and gaining a majority in the Senate.
It is not reported what the next step will be after the House of Representatives voted in favor to sue Barack Obama or when the lawsuit will be initiated. But we here can report that Republicans have wanted to impeach Obama as we reported in an earlier article. Even some prominent Conservatives, including former Republican vice president candidate Sarah Palin, have called for Obama’s impeachment. Right now, according to John Boehner, any form of impeachment talk is a “scam” to raise money.
