Breitbart: Ted Cruz Lists 76 'Lawless' Obama Actions
Texas Senator Ted Cruz released a document on May 7 titled "The Legal Limit Report No. 4: The Obama Administration's Abuse of Power," which lists 76 of President Obama's "lawless" actions.
Breitbart Texas obtained a copy of Cruz's report, which stated, "The President's taste for unilateral action to circumvent Congress should concern every citizen, regardless of party or ideology.
Cruz's office told Breitbart Texas, "Rule of law is extremely important to Senator Cruz and he believes all administrations, no matter from what party, should be held accountable to following the rule of law and tenants of the Constitution. He will continue working to shine a light on this administration's lawlessness as long as it continues."
Cruz said in the report, "Rather than honor his duty, President Obama has openly defied it by repeatedly suspending, delaying, and waiving portions of the laws that he is charged to enforce. When President Obama disagreed with federal immigration laws, he instructed the Justice Department to cease enforcing the laws. He did the same thing with federal welfare law, drug laws, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act. In more than two centuries of our nation's history, there is simply no precedent for the White House wantonly ignoring federal laws and asking others to do the same."
