Texas Republican Governor-elect Greg Abbott said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” that President Barack Obama felt “completely unconstrained by the Constitution.”
HOST CHRIS WALLACE: When you take the president to court on this executive action that he has announced this week, this will be 31st lawsuit that you have filed against this president. How come?
ABBOTT: Because this president, more than any other president, has abdicated his responsibility to uphold and enforce the Constitution. Remember this also; of those cases that have been finally decided, I have won a majority of those cases. Look what happened recently this past summer when the United States Supreme Court said the president violated the Constitution with the appointment to the National Labor Relations Board. Look at what is going on with the Supreme Court taking another case involves Obamacare because of executive action.
We have a president who feels completely unconstrained by the Constitution. Attorneys General across the United States of America are the leaders in stepping up, holding this president accountable to the United States Constitution. If we don’t have the Constitution enforced, it will lead to dire consequences in our future.
