Obama Says GOP Lawsuit
Will Cost Tax Dollars

ABC News, by Chris Good

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/12/2014 7:11:35 PM

In his weekly radio/YouTube address, President Obama derided House Republicans’ planned lawsuit against him, warning that GOP lawmakers will spend taxpayer dollars on a frivolous legal challenge. “It’s a political stunt that’s going to waste months of America’s time. And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars,” Obama said. (Video) House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has orchestrated the beginnings of a lawsuit against the president over his use of executive authority. As the White House and the GOP-controlled House have failed to compromise on a slew of issues during Obama’s tenure, the president has

My problem with the Lawsuit is the constitution created three (somewhat) co-equal branches of government with specific powers. WHY IS THIS LAWSUIT COSTING TAXPAYERS MONEY? What branch of the government allocates this money? The congress has remedies for abuse already. Why ask one branch of government to take a side? As an article posted at this site said (paraphrasing), congress is bring a referee´s whistle to a gun fight. Congress should first exercise the power it has.

How about all those taxpayer dollars spent on unconstitutional agencies every year to harass people to comply with their rules they make up to justify their government high paying jobs or pay the penalty.

We´re talking Billions of dollars here.

Other than court costs - how much money?

WH counsel is already on payroll; the House no doubt has attorneys already on payroll. Borrow attorney´s from DOJ if necessary

WH has large staff.

If he´s really that concerned (1) behave himself; (2) give up his vacation.

Hillary Clinton has no accounting for over 600 million dollars. She just doesn´t know where it went. That is tax payers dollars.

How about all the tax dollars going to Mexico and they snob their nose at our laws and have a Marine they will not release and we continue to send Mexico money, our tax dollars.

I could go on, but you know the drill.
This will be the one time I am behind the tax dollars being used to sue Obama and I hope he is soundly announced guilty and pays heavily.

As opposed to all the law suits this administration has filed against the States? How much have we spent to keep voter identification lax enough? Or how much did we spend when a District Court of Appeals said the first moratorium on drilling was illegal and the administration change a few words and issued it again? Or defending Moratorium 2? Or the permitorium that followed that?

IMO Boehner´s lawsuit isn´t a good strategy, it´s a weak RINO strategy to make us think that he and the rest of the republican establishment clowns are putting up a fight against ObamaCare.

Either way the RINO idiots don´t know how to go on the offensive on Obama and his statement that the lawsuit will cost tax dollars. They are so dumb it´s embarrassing.

How many millions of dollars did Øvomit´s little trip down to Texas this week cost?

Considering that trip was a Demon-RAT fundraiser trip, I have no idea why the taxpayers have to pay for it.

However, Øvomit has no hesitation in spending tax dollars for anything he wants, so if it really bothers him, he can pay for his own defense out of his own pocket.

But I won´t hold my breath...

President Barack Obama will headline upcoming fundraisers for House and Senate Democrats, with more big dollar events starring the president being planned before Election Day, according to Democratic insiders. Obama will get top billing for an Aug. 29 fundraiser on behalf of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Newport, Rhode Island, said Democratic sources. The president will also take part in a Sept. 12 fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in Baltimore, the sources added. House and Senate Democrats - who already have a huge fundraising advantage over their GOP counterparts - want Obama to appear at additional fundraisers

The book, set to be announced Wednesday evening, will be published by Crown Publishers and released Nov. 11, according to an email distributed Wednesday to Bush family and friends.

The Peace Corps announced Wednesday that it was temporarily withdrawing its 340 volunteers in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone after two workers were exposed to the Ebola virus. A spokeswoman told CNN and CBS News that the pair were being isolated after coming in contact with an infected patient who later died. The two have not exhibited symptoms, however, and will be sent back the United States after doctors clear them. The Peace Corps did not indicate when the volunteers might return to West Africa, where the growing outbreak is centered. "The agency has been and will continue to closely

Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) brought their bipartisan push for criminal justice reform (a noble cause, if you ask us) to MSNBC’s The Cycle on Wednesday afternoon. While the conversation was mostly cordial and illuminating, it took a brief turn for the tense when Ari Melber found a way to bring up Sen. Paul’s controversial 2010 comments to Rachel Maddow about the Civil Rights Act. Directly after the libertarian-leaning senator made the case that prison reform is a civil rights issue, Melber transitioned: “As we’re talking about restoring civil rights here, you stirred up a lot of

The West´s coverage of the African Ebola outbreak-- now claiming more than 600 lives-- has focused extensively on the facts: the symptoms, victims, and the potential of it spreading past the continent. In the four affected countries, however, the media has written everything from warnings to avoid witch doctors to urgent calls for prayer. In Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Nigeria-- the four countries to have registered individuals contaminated with Ebola since the outbreak began in March, the media has focused on various localized aspects of the disease. Some have focused on warning readers how to avoid the Ebola virus

RICHMOND — Arrangements were made for Robert F. McDonnell to drive a Ferrari. His daughter was given passes to the Ritz Carlton in Tampa. A boat was made available for a McDonnell family vacation. The third day of the corruption trial of the former Virginia governor and his wife, Maureen, opened with an assistant to a dietary supplement executive testifying to a laundry list of lavish gifts she helped arrange for the first family on behalf of Jonnie R. Williams Sr. Federal prosecutors are contending at the trial that the McDonnells used the prestige of the governor’s mansion to push

At least 700 cars remained trapped Wednesday inside two parking structures at UCLA after a 93-year-old water main ruptured, spewing up to 10 million gallons of water onto the campus and nearby streets. Using an online registration system to track vehicles in the university´s lots, campus officials have determined that nearly 400 of the marooned cars belong to students, almost 300 to campus staff, more than a dozen to faculty and about 40 to visitors. Officials on Wednesday said up to 300 of the vehicles were partially submerged in water and several hundred more were damaged. On Tuesday, firefighters helped

We cannot allow executive orders to be issued by a president that eradicates plain law. To do so is wrong. The American people are watching this.

An insignificant number of Democrats will side with Republicans in favor of the GOP´s proposal addressing the southern border crisis, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) predicted Wednesday. Democratic leaders are already whipping against the $659 million package, largely because of a provision making it easier for authorities to deport the thousands of Central American migrants who have crossed the border in recent months. That change has been endorsed by at least three House Democrats — Reps. Henry Cuellar (Texas), Ron Barber (Ariz.) and Collin Peterson (Minn.) — but Hoyer is anticipating that few others in his caucus will back

Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams. The group discussed the impeachment buzz swirling around Washington, which most observers agree is being ginned up by Democrats eager for

Israel unleashed its heaviest bombardment in its three-week-old campaign against Hamas in Gaza on Tuesday as the Obama administration battled the growing perception among Israelis that Secretary of State John F. Kerry is a hapless bumbler in search of a cosmetic truce. Diplomatic efforts remained stalled despite a death toll that Palestinian officials said rose above 1,200 on Tuesday. The shadowy leader of the Hamas military wing said his group will not cease fire until an economic embargo is ended and other demands are met. After his latest round of mediation failed to achieve a cease-fire, Mr. Kerry has been

President Obama demanded that Israel agree to a one-sided cease-fire during a heated phone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to a report aired on Israeli TV Tuesday. Both leaders quickly denounced the purported transcript of their private discussion as fake. But the TV channel that obtained it, state-run Channel 1, stood by its account. In one bitter exchange, Obama declared that Qatar and Turkey — Hamas’ biggest international supporters — would mediate with the terrorists on Israel’s behalf, according to the TV channel. “I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators,” the president

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura joined the “CBS This Morning” co-hosts Wednesday to discuss the details of his legal battle with a former U.S. sniper. On Tuesday a federal jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his case against Kyle’s widow. The former governor told CBS: “I’m already damaged. I can’t go to a SEAL reunion anymore.

Stop just hatin’ all the time. C’mon, let’s get some work done together.” Obama said that he still had a lot of work to do, including spending on roads and bridges, resources for fighting wildfires, and addressing the border crisis. “I know they’re not that happy that I’m president, but that’s ok,” he added. “I’ve only got a couple years left, let’s get some work done.

Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera sniped at conservative blogger Matt Drudge over his website The Drudge Report’s emphasis on news regarding the U.S.-Mexico border. “Shame on Drudge,” Geraldo tweeted Wednesday. “His authoritative website has gone hysterical on issue of immigrant children. 14 stories like ‘Could Ebola sneak across?’” Drudge has admittedly placed an emphasis on linking to stories concerning the border. “I’m more obsessed with what’s going on with the border these days,” he said in a recent interview.
