Tea Party Patriots: Today’s decision in United States v. Texas is a Huge Victory for the Constitution over President Obama’s Executive Overreach
ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots CEO and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today reacting to the Supreme Court decision in United States v. Texas.
“Today’s Supreme Court decision in United States v. Texas affirms that Article 1 of the Constitution is still in play for at least four members of the Supreme Court. That section of the Constitution makes clear that the president does not have the right to unilaterally change the law — only Congress can change the law. This is a huge victory for the Constitution over President Obama’s all-too-frequently-used executive overreach, and, consequently, we are pleased. But we also notice with no small measure of chagrin the fact that there appear to be four Justices whose interpretation of the Constitution would allow for just such executive overreach — and that is a cause for concern. This case’s outcome reminds us all just how important it is for Senate Republicans to continue to stand firm against a precedent-breaking election year confirmation.”
