Washington, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – The U.S. House of Representatives voted recently to authorize Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to file a law suit against President Barack Obama for overstepping his authority and for disrespecting Congress. This unprecedented move passed largely along party lines, with all Republicans but five voting in favor of the law suit.
The law suit alleges that Obama failed to enforce the Affordable Care Act in a timely manner, particularly the mandate on employers who do not provide health care coverage to their employees.
Republicans also want Obama impeached for abuse of authority by issuing executive orders on minimum wage, workplace pay and LGBT protections without consulting Congress.
Today, House Republicans added another charge to the law suit, chiding the president for wearing a tan-colored suit at a White House press briefing . “This is a total disrespect for the the solemn Office of the President,” Republicans said, adding that “no other president in the history of the United States has dared to wear a light-colored suit. It is very disgraceful!” They, however, admitted Obama’s striped gray tie perfectly matched his suit.
Speaker John Boehner told reporters that the new charge only adds teeth to the law suit and said that he was confident the courts will rule in the Republicans’ favor.
The charge only mentioned the color of Obama’s suit and tie, but not the color of his belt or shoes.
