Congress Takes Steps That Could Lead To President Obama's Impeachment

While many Americans have called for the president's impeachment, some members of Congress are beginning the processes that would hold President Obama accountable for his lawless actions.

"The STOP Act," sponsored by Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC) claims Obama should be brought to court for his defiance against the Constitution. The congressman stated the purpose of initiating the legal proceedings was to "bring a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch."

The most recent and notable Constitutional defiance included a range of offenses regarding the Affordable Care Act. The president has changed the language of the law as well as, processes of implementation without the consent of Congress.

Rice wrote, "President Obama has adopted a practice of picking and choosing which laws he wants to enforce. In most cases, his laws of choice conveniently coincide with his Administration's political agenda. Our Founding Fathers created the Executive Branch to implement and enforce the laws written by Congress and vested this power in the President. However, President Obama has chosen to ignore some of the laws written by Congress and implemented by preceding Presidents."

So far, Rice's movement to begin legal proceedings has garnered support from 29 members of Congress.

Here is a list of those supporting the STOP Act: Bachmann (MN), Bridenstine (OK), Chaffetz (UT), J. Duncan (SC), DeSantis (FL), Franks (AZ), Gowdy (SC), Harris (MD), Lamborn (CO), LaMalfa (CA), Marino (PA), McClintock (CA), Meadows (NC), Nunnelee (MS), Pittenger (NC), Posey (FL), Tom Price (GA), Ribble (WI), Salmon (AZ), Sanford (SC), Schweikert (AZ), Stewart (UT), Stockman (TX), Walberg (MI), Weber (TX), Wenstrup (OH), Williams (TX), Joe Wilson (SC), and Yoho (FL).
