Statement on the Supreme Court Ruling of United States v. Texas
June 24, 2016
GILBERT – Today, Andy Biggs released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled in the affirmative in United States v. Texas.
“Today marks an important victory for our U.S. Constitution and its separation of powers. Throughout his time in office, President Obama has relied on pushing unconstitutional executive orders to work around Congress. I am proud to see that our Supreme Court ruled in favor of the American people and against President Obama’s “pen and phone” tactics.”
“President Obama’s habit of creating regulations, enforcing them, and adjudicating penalties is not only unconstitutional, but tyrannical. I look forward to serving in the U.S. House of Representatives to restore our government’s constitutional duties and preserve its separation of powers.”
