US Rep. Davis: OK With Lawsuit Against Obama

While the chances of President Obama appearing in court defending a lawsuit against himself are small, U. S. Rep. Rodney Davis  says the decision to pursue litigation is sound.
It is the right thing to do,” Davis said. “You’ve got a president who (through executive order) is basically flaunting the Constitution. He’s flaunting the balance of power that hasn’t been done like he’s doing. in the history of our nation. This is one piece of legislation. We have passed 350-plus other bills that we’re waiting the Senate to take up; we can walk and chew gum at the same time.”
Davis cites an example of where he believes the President is wrong: what Davis calls the “war on coal,” which, Davis says, threatens three power plants in his district, which snakes from the Champaign-Urbana area, past Decatur, Bloomington-Normal, and Springfield, to the Metro East.
