GOP Senators Suing Obama Over Unconstitutional Non-Recess Recess Apointments

Thank god… someone finally addressing this!

“The president’s decision to circumvent the American people by installing his appointees at a powerful federal agency, when the Senate was not in recess, and without obtaining the advice and consent of the Senate, is an unprecedented power grab,” McConnell said. “We will demonstrate to the court how the president’s unconstitutional actions fundamentally endanger the Congress’s role in providing a check on the excesses of the executive branch.”

But seriously…. what took them so long? I would have immediately cut all funding off to the agency until Obama agreed to rescind the appointment.
