The Republicans have gone completely crazy, they are suing Obama for not implementing ACA (Obamacare) fast enoguh – while also trying to have the law repealed 54 times.
Sow which is it? Do they want it implemented as fast as possible? Or NOT implemented at all?
Next we have the idea of a lawsuit. The House of Representatives is charged with IMPEACHING any president who violates the authorities associated with his office. But how do they get STANDING to sue him? Were they personally damaged by the speed, or lack there of, of implementation of Obamacare?
Also: If the lawsuit were to somehow pass basic Legal and Constitutional muster, would there be some form of damages assessed?
We know they cannot remove him from office – that’s Impeachment and the case needs to be made in the Senate – not the civil court.
But let’s say damages were imposed: Obama is functioning as the President, therefore the employer must pay; that means the Government; that means the House of Representatives must authorize the payment – if they fail to, they they would be in contempt of court for not authorizing payment to themselves.
?????? HUM ??????
Congress is suing itself for damages?
Is that Legally allowed – is it Constitutional?
