Proposals to Impeach Obama over plunging U.S. into debt and Executive Orders on Guns
The Washington Times and World Net Daily are reporting:
The House passed its "no budget, no pay" bill this week to try and prompt politicians addicted to spending to restore some sense of fiscal discipline to the nation's capital. Now, Rep. Mo Brooks, Alabama Republican, has proposed a bill that would make the failure of future presidents to enforce a balanced budget an impeachable offense.
The Hill reports that Protecting America's Solvency Act, H.R. 371, would put stringent caps on Congress, forcing it not to spend more revenue than is collected. Provisions in the law could be amended with a four-fifths majority vote.
"I have learned from experience that unless there is penalty & there is a significant risk that the executive, or for that matter the Senate or the House, won't do it," Mr. Brooks said.
Earlier, Congressman Stockman warned executive orders banning guns would be met with articles of impeachment
Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order.
Stockman warned that such executive orders would be "unconstitutional" and "infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms."
"I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment," Stockman said in a statement.
