President rebuffed over appointee scandal

It seems that the Democrats are finally coming to share long-held Republican views that President Barack Obama has been overstepping his Constitutional authority. Or at least Democrats among the nation's highest court, where a unanimous decision rebuffed President Obama's numerous appointments  to fill vacancies when Congress was not actually in recess.

The U.S. Supreme Court has fired back at President Obama and his administration's practices of overextending his federal powers, leading to his twelfth court loss.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to Senator Mike Lee (R, Utah) this decision represents just "the tip of the iceberg."

Heed the call: End world hunger through "prayer and action".

"Not every case in which the president has exceeded his authority has made it all the way to the Supreme Court," he said. "The fact that his track record is as bad as it is in the Supreme Court . is yet another indication of the fact that we've got a president who is playing fast and loose with the Constitution."

Senator Ted Cruz (R, Texas) has kept a tally of the president's defeats. "This marks the twelfth time since January of 2012 that the Supreme Court has unanimously rejected the Obama administration's calls for greater federal executive power," he said.

Cruz listed just a few of the numerous cases that Obama's administration has lost. "If the Department of Justice had won these cases, the federal government would be able to electronically track all of our movements, fine us without a fair hearing, dictate who churches choose as ministers, displace state laws based on the president's whims, bring debilitating lawsuits against individuals based on events that occurred years ago, and destroy a person's private property without just compensation."

He continued in language that many Republicans, and even a few more moderate Democrats have used.

"When President Obama's own Supreme Court nominees join their colleagues in unanimously rejecting the administration's call for broader federal power . the inescapable conclusion is that the Obama administration's view of federal power knows virtually no bounds."
