Continuing on President Obama's effect on the economy in my Labor Dept post I figured I would point something out that a lot of people haven't even considered (I surprised a number of people in my office with this one this morning). All of those fun little Executive Orders that the President is passing... well, every single one of them that requires any additional funding is not just illegal, but UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Here, I'll prove it.
No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law - Article 1, Section 9, Clause 7
All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives - Article 1, Section 7, Clause 1
Oh look, his orders required money be drawn from the US Treasury, but only the House can determine how revenue (the government word for all that money they take from us) is spent. That would technically make his actions an impeachable offense. Of course, we all know it won't happen, because even though the House can call for Impeachment (Article 1, Section 2, Clause 5) only the Senate can try Impeachment (Article 1, Section 3, Clause 6). Since the Dems control it, and they'd never even think of trying their messiah it'd end up being a show trial, kind of like the Clinton fiasco. That's the same reason the House hasn't called for the impeachment of Eric Holder by the way, they actually want the guy to pay for his crimes (I'm under no illusions that Obama will get touched by this, regardless of what happens to Holder).
For a Constitutional Lawyer and Law Professor (of which all he did was teach a couple of classes, not complete courses) he sure does ignore it a lot. Nicest case (for him) he forgot these little tidbits and is just incompetent, something I don't believe for a quarter second.
