Last week I received a reply from Congressman Berg about President Obama’s unconstitutional appointments from a few weeks back. There was a great deal in the letter about historical precedent and sending President Obama a letter to express their disapproval. To be honest I was very disappointed. I published the letter here if you want to read it. Does it make me an idealist to believe that when you have a sitting President who completely ignores the oath he took to support and defend the constitution there should be more consequences for his actions than a letter of disapproval? Even though our elected officials don’t treat it as such, the constitution is still the law of the land and the President’s actions in this matter violate the law. This is not about Republicans or Democrats. It’s not about left or right. It’s about America and the principles that built her. To inform me that you’re going to send a letter to the President or create a House resolution to express your concerns over his actions is unacceptable. This does nothing to address this violation and there is certainly no teeth in the action.
The other night during the State of the Union address, the President had the audacity to flaunt his appointment of Mr. Cordray in front of the very body of government he illegally bypassed. This is the body of government that represents both the states and the people and by bypassing it he ignored the will of both and that’s unacceptable in our republic. What was even more pathetic were the number of representatives and senators who gave him a standing ovation when announced the appointment. I mean are these people really that stupid; applauding a President who ignored and bypassed their constitutional authority. Maybe the reason they felt the President did nothing wrong is because the constitution has become nothing more than an after thought in D.C. these days. This needs to change. We need to start electing people who revere the constitution and who take their oath seriously. This new mindset can help set a new tone in Washington; however it cannot happen without us. We need to start expressing our concerns to our elected officials and let them know that the constitution still matters to the people. This is why I felt it was essential to write the man who directly represents me and this is why I encourage you to do the same.
