Rep. Louie Gohmert: Thank you and bless you for standing up for the Constitution.
On the floor of the House tonight, Gohmert said:
Protecting the Constitution means -- if we don't save the balance of power, then this little experiment with democracy or the republic, madam, as Benjamin Franklin referred to it, will be lost. ...
This president didn't even have the gumption to write an executive order and sign it. He spoke his new amnesty law into being and then Jeh Johnson did a memo. That took the power of Congress away from us.
So the question on acting responsibly is, do we make that message clear: We're not having laws spoken into being in this country, and having some bureacrat, unelected, come around with a memo that undoes laws by different Congresses, all these years, signed by different presidents -- with a memo! Come on!
It's time to act responsibly. Now is the time. Please, I know party divisions run deep but stand with us for the Constitution.
