"We've got a lawsuit we voted on that I believe is one of the constitutional tools the House is entitled to," Noem said. "When we see the president unilaterally circumventing the laws this country has established, it's time for the judicial system to weigh in."
Noem said it is the House's duty to uphold the nation's laws and to hold the executive branch accountable.President Barrak Obama has created 183 executive orders. Boy, that sounds like a lot, but when you look at other two term presidents of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, they ended with a lot more. George W. Bush ended with 291 executive orders. In 2009 Slate Magazine posted the top ten controversial executive orders that should be overturned.
Then of course there is Ronald Reagan, the demi-god for many conservatives. He faced a opposing legislature and went to the executive orders to accomplish his agenda: LAWLESS Noem and Boehner would shout!
Ever wonder how the NSA got the power to spy on citizens and basically do what ever they want to do? You can thank executive order 12333 from Ronald Reagan.
It was President Reagan’s infamous Executive Order 12333 (referred to as “twelve-triple-three”) that established and handed to the NSA virtually all of the powers under which the agency operates to this day—allowing the agency to collect the data that so many now find to be so offensive.
McClatchy describes Executive Order 12333 as follows: “It is a sweeping mandate that outlines the duties and foreign intelligence collection for the nation’s 17 intelligence agencies. It is not governed by Congress, and critics say it has little privacy protection and many loopholes.”It was Reagan that used the executive order to ban the use of government money to groups that support or use abortion for family planning in foreign countries, not Congress. It was George W. Bush that used the executive order to use "enhanced interrogating techniques" and not Chuck Norris, Kiefer Sutherland, or Congress.
Madville Times offers the following questions for Robinson to ask in a debate:
Question #1 for Kristi at her upcoming debates with Corinna Robinson: "Tell us, Congresswoman, how does suing the President to force implementation of a law that you want repealed and that you say will increase costs for businesses practically benefit South Dakota?"
Question #2: "How much will your lawsuit cost the taxpayers?"
Question #3: "Barack Obama won two Presidential elections and is in the sixth year of his Presidency. Are you willing to acknowledge this fact and move on?"I would offer another question, would you have supported a similar lawsuit against Ronald Reagan? The last question is simply, do you think that Congress would be able to get more accomplished if it ended it partisan bickering and tried to focus the needs of America and South Dakota before they become a crisis?
