Boehner says he will sue President Obama over executive orders

Get set to pony up more tax dollars for this "subterfuge" (as Nancy Pelosi called it).

Boehner declined to spell out which specific actions would be addressed in the suit, which have included a 2012 decision not to deport children of illegal immigrants and this month’s order to allow the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate carbon emissions from power plants. Those executive orders came after the Republican-controlled House and Democratic-controlled Senate deadlocked on these issues over the past few years, taking no action.

Translation: Congress should be the only one to take action - or not, as Boehner sees fit.

“In my view the president has not faithfully executed the law,” Boehner told reporters at his weekly briefing.

Translation: The awful President got things done.

Read the rest in the Washington Post report.
