Well, wow. Some of us have been asking all year when Republicans were going to address the pressing issue of Obama’s flagrant, extra constitutional, executive overreach.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday, Senator Mike Lee, a former Constitutional lawyer and Supreme Court law clerk, will testify at a House Judiciary Committee hearing titled “The Obama Administration’s Abuse of Power.” The hearing will highlight the numerous ways in which the Obama Administration and the Justice Department have overstepped the Constitution’s limitations on Executive power.
The abuses being examined will be:
1: Asserting the power to suspend the application of Congressionally-enacted laws
2: Evading the Senate’s Advice and Consent power
3: Repeatedly making regulations for which it lacks authority
4: Flouting Congress’s oversight function
5: Trampling individual rights under the Constitution

We’ll see if anything comes out of this.
