WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Office of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor released a report, The Imperial Presidency, to make clear that the result of President’s Obama disregard for the legislative process has been a breakdown in the rule of law which has reduced economic growth and individual prosperity.
President Obama’s term in office has been characterized by weak economic growth, historic debt, high unemployment, and unprecedented disregard for legislative authority and the separation of powers. Clear, transparent, predictable rules that are applied without preference help create certainty and allow individuals to invest, build businesses, and create jobs. When there is a breakdown in the rule of law, increased uncertainty leads to reduced investment and less growth. The Committees of the House of Representatives have investigated and documented numerous breakdowns in the rule of law and this report showcases over 40 such examples.
