Republican Representative Jack Kingston (GA) and 29 Republican co-sponsors filed legislation that would force Obama to actually be accountable by vetting his Czars. This is probably one of the most needed pieces of legislation that we will see in our lifetimes. Obama has a list of 34 Czars – some ‘positions’ that still need to be filled but of that number 27 have not been vetted by Congress. In 6 months Obama has taken it upon himself to bypass Congress and the American people by appointing his very own ‘shadow government’. The Czars report directly to him and are not held accountable to Congress; therefore, not held accountable to the American people – who pay their salaries.

From the United States Constitution – Article II, Section 2 :

“[The President] shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments.”

This clearly states that what Obama is doing by appointing Czars left and right is a violation of the Constitution. I realize that Obama doesn’t seem to think much of our Constitution but we, the people, DO. The only government officials who can make policy are the members of Congress who WE nominate. The ‘Pay Czar’ cannot tell anyone what their salaries or bonuses will be limited to, it has to be legislated by Congress. Yet Obama seems to think that his Czars can do whatever they want and most people probably don’t understand that his ‘Yes we can’ is really our “Hell no you can’t”. Finally someone is standing up for us against Obama’s outrageous appointments.
