Professors Chide Congress: Stop Allowing Obama’s Abuses of Power

Constitutional law scholars on Wednesday told members of Congress they’re a bunch of lily-livered wimps when it comes to dealing with President Barack Obama’s abuses of power, the Washington Post reports.

“Recently, Congress has seemed — frankly — feckless and uncertain as to its authority,” testified Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University. “For Congress not to act, in my view, borders on self-loathing.”

He made the comments during a committee hearing Wednesday called “Enforcing the President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws.”

“If you want to stay relevant as an institution,” said Elizabeth Price Foley, a law professor at Florida International University, “I would suggest that you not stand idly by and let the president take your power away.”

The comments come on the heels of Obama’s recent and infamous remark that he would bypass Congress to pass his pet projects.

“I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone — and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward,” Obama had said in January.

Obama has repeatedly changed aspects of  his signature Affordable Care Act law, seemingly at will, most notably his decision to delay the employer mandate. Columnist Charles Krauthammer said of the delay: “This is the stuff you do in a Banana Republic.”
