Article 1 Section 1 of the United States Constitution reads “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
When this President declares that he "can't wait" for Congress and instead seeks to rule by royal decree, he is literally violating the first written law of our nation. Congress must stand up for its constitutional authority and fight the flagrant abuse of the executive order.
This issue is about the basic, constitutional construction of our government that every elected official has sworn to uphold. This fundamental disregard of the Constitution must be challenged if we are to remain governed by the people.
TheTeaParty.net is a division of Stop This Insanity Inc. and is a national non-profit 501 (c)(4) organization created in 2009 for the education and advancement of the constitutional conservative values of the Tea Party movement. This organization was created to help give the power of government back to the people. We believe, like many of you, that our government has grown out-of-control in a death spiral of unsustainable and barely imaginable trillion-dollar deficits and a national debt rivaling Gross Domestic Product. This government has ignored the Constitution that defines us; invaded the liberty from which our nation was born; and daily drains away the individuality and entrepreneurial spirit of Americans in order to advance a radical, socialist policy built on the back of American taxpayers. We, like many of you, decided to stand up and do something about it. Learn More.
