Obama Asks Mayors to Help Him Bypass Congress
Obama has threatened Congress on multiple occasions, and though he famously claimed on March 1, 2013, “I’m not a dictator,” his disregard for the constitutional structure of our federal government has never been more obvious.
America has three branches of government for a reason – to check and balance each other and ensure the protection of all our liberties. When one branch attempts to usurp the other two, chaos ensues. Obama simply cannot expect to go behind Congress’s back on a regular basis and not have to answer for it.
During a winter meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors at the White House on Thursday, the President tasked the group of 250 mayors with “helping his administration move forward.”
ABC news reports:
“I want to work with Congress whenever and wherever I can. But the one thing I’m emphasizing to all my Cabinet members is we’re not going to wait,” Obama told a group of 250 mayors at the White House. “Where Congress is debating things and hasn’t been able to pull the trigger on stuff, my administration’s going to move forward, and we’re going to … do it in partnership with all of you.”If President Obama thinks he can get his agenda accomplished without the input of Congress, he is sorely mistaken. Americans should not and will not stand for such blatant trampling of the Constitution. We must all do our part to elect local officials and Congressional representatives who will stand up to Obama and keep our liberties and the Constitution intact.
“Every day mayors are proving that you don’t have to wait for the gridlock to clear in Congress in order to make things happen,” he said.
