Washington, DC – Congressman Steve King released the following excerpts of his remarks and questioning of the witnesses at the House Judiciary Committee Hearing on “Enforcing the President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws:”

“It should be obvious to all of us by now that there is unlikely any law that we could possibly pass here in Congress that’s going to compel the President to enforce it unless it’s to his political interest to do so…

…The President did a press conference on noon on a Friday, and he said, ‘well now I’m going to make an accommodation to the religious institutions [in regards to the Conscience Protection] and I’m now going to require the insurances companies, instead, to provide these services [contraceptives, abortifacients, sterilizations] for free.’ And he repeated himself, ‘for free’. And if you scour the rule written by Sebelius’ HHS there wasn’t a letter changed in that rule. The President had spoken orally in a press conference and the insurance companies lined up to do his will and his bidding. That was a chilling thing to witness as a sworn to oath to protect the Constitution Member of Congress…

…What’s our recourse if the Legislative and Judicial Branch of government are disrespected to an equal level and the President is wrapped completely in the cloak of ‘I am President therefore I can do what I want?’”
