Congress should be sued for blocking President Obama's initiatives

The president clearly needs to sue Congress for exceeding its authority in effectively castrating the presidency for corrupt reasons, implying the public will and welfare “be damned,” and blatantly destroying the checks and balances so critical to effective government.

Though Congress is entitled to defend its actions, the equivalent of treble punitive damages should be sought. Individual lawsuits should be considered for abuse of office as well. In this way, the courts and the presidency need to unite in making and setting the precedent for any and all future changes to the law, necessary to prevent re-occurrence. Congress’ conflicts of interest make it imperative for such necessary decisions to be made for Congress, as it will never make such decisions itself.

Should the opportunity be able to be included, the owners of our country, the “real” citizenry, should also be empowered to weigh in through public referendum, as their individual authority through their individual vote has been and is being sorely threatened, as well.
