A Republican World – The “States Have Rights But The Voters In The States Were Wrong’ Edition – ‘WATCH: GOP Demands Obama ‘Enforce The Law’ In Pro-Weed States, Passes Bill’
First they demand that States have rights.
Then when the voters in two States voted to approve pot sales, the House Republicans want to take away States Rights.
So it’s States Rights subject to approval by House Republicans.
And then there’s that pesky little thing called ‘Separation Of Power’ in the Constitution.
‘The Republican House just passed the “ENFORCE the Law Act” in an attempt to force President Obama to enforce federal laws, even where state laws directly contradict federal law’.
‘Representatives Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Jim Gerlach (R-PA) and Darrell Issa (R-CA) introduced the bill, which passed almost strictly on party lines. Now it’ll go to the Senate, where Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said it would be dead on arrival’.
‘Goodlatte submitted a report on the bill, which says that the purpose of the bill is “To prevent executive overreach and to ensure that the President discharges his constitutional duty to ‘take care that the laws be faithfully executed…’” among other things’.
‘It also allows Congress to sue the president for failing to enforce the law’.
