GOP Led Congress made a huge show about doing something for which they already knew they had no legal basis but it made for good "showmanship" as they had convinced thier base through Fox News that there was a legal basis for impeaching the President for the Affordable Care Act which was passed by Congress and had already had been confirmed Constitutional once by the Supreme Court once (that's 3 branches of Government). Since then the Supreme Court confirmed the plan's Constitutionality again. This isn't like the GOP's Iraq War, this has been heavily vetted by investigation and in public opinion through the media. i.e. the GOP lied for publicity.

Bills NOT passed by the do-nothing Congress:

Border Bill (To protect our borders against people entering from 'terrorist connected countries')

A highway funding bill (Our infrastructure is crumbling)

Emergency Unemployement Insurance

Student Loan Relief

Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Summary; Congress is not following Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution i.e. they are not doing their job in outright defiance of their role outline in the Constitution!

The GOP have been destroying the economy & opposing their own bills JUST to oppose Obama!

What did Congress do this year?


They are suing the President over his "Selective implementation of the affordable care act"! Something which is blatant hypocrisy as Jon Stewart explains...
Extract from news article on "Impeachment Lite":

WASHINGTON -- A day before going on vacation and heading into the election season, Republicans in the House of Representatives passed a resolution Wednesday authorizing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to sue President Barack Obama for what they say has been inadequate enforcement of the health care law they oppose.

The suit would seek to make Obama strictly enforce the Affordable Care Act that Boehner has held some 50 votes to undermine or repeal. Republicans object that the Obama administration has delayed some parts of the law, particularly the mandate on employers who do not provide health care coverage.

The measure passed 225 to 201, with five Republicans joining Democrats to oppose the lawsuit.

"This isn't about Republicans and Democrats. It's about defending the Constitution that we swore an oath to uphold and acting decisively when it may be compromised," Boehner said shortly before his members granted him the power to sue. "No member of this body needs to be reminded what the Constitution states about the president's obligation to faithfully execute the laws of our nation. No member needs to be reminded of the bonds of trust that have been frayed or the damage that's already been done."

Some Republicans acknowledged the lawsuit's irony. But they argued that even though they oppose the law, it's the president's job to enforce it -- and he hasn't.

"President Obama has decided that he cannot be bothered with the separation of powers," said Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.). "He has bragged that if Congress will not accept his priorities he has a pen and a phone and he will make the law."

"If there were a Republican president doing the same thing, I would feel just as strongly. This is about the Constitution," said Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.). "For too long, this body, under the leadership of both Democrats and Republicans, has ceded parts of our constitutional authority to the executive branch."

But Democrats hammered the vote, saying it was at best a political stunt that wastes time that could be much better spent, and at worst a step toward trying to impeach Obama. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) dubbed it "impeachment lite."

"We're going to adjourn tomorrow for five weeks, five weeks, leaving unfinished business here," said Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), referring to Congress' annual August recess. "We have precious few hours remaining to act on the priorities of the American people and finish the can't-wait business for the Congress. So much needs to be done.

"Republicans are putting the special interests and the howls of impeachment-hungry extremists before the needs of the nation," Pelosi said. "The lawsuit is only the latest proof of House Republicans' contempt and disregard for the priorities of the American people."


AboveGeorge Bush increased the debt ceiling in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006. 2007 and twice in 2008

Explanation: Rather than defaulting on debts it makes more sense to raise the ceiling and solve the budget problem. THEN, over time, the debt will decrease if that is how the budget is balanced.

Now What? Now that Congress has passed impeachment lite why not indict them for treason. There is actual Constitutional precedent for indicting the GOP for treason...

TO COMBAT RISING CALLS OF IMPEACHMENT... WHY NOT INDICT THE GOP FOR TREASON? (Note: Since the GOP passed "Impeachment Lite" what is fair is an "Indictment for Treason Lite".)
