Sen. Cruz Releases Fourth Report on Obama Administrations Lawlessness
The Legal Limit Report No. 4: The Obama Administrations Abuse of Power
May 7, 2014
WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today released his fourth report on the Obama Administration’s executive overreaches. In this report, Sen. Cruz documents 76 instances of lawlessness and other abuses of power.
“The pattern of lawlessness by this Administration should concern every citizen, regardless of party or ideology,” said Sen. Cruz. “Rule of law means that we are a nation ruled by laws, not men. No one—and especially not the president—is above the law. For that reason, the U.S. Constitution imposes on every president the express duty to ‘take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.’ Rather than honor this duty, President Obama has openly defied it by repeatedly suspending, delaying, and waiving portions of the laws that he is charged to enforce.”
In The Legal Limit Report No. 4 Sen. Cruz catalogues abuses of power, including:
- The Administration’s disregard for current drug, immigration, welfare, and marriage laws.
- The White House’s false portrayal about events in Benghazi.
- The exemptions, waivers, and delays associated with the implementation of Obamacare.
