If there is anything to be learned from the past seven years of executive overreach and abuse we have seen from the Obama administration, it is that we must find a way to reign in the imperial presidency. Congress must demand more accountability and oversight of the runaway Executive branch.
By establishing a new permanent committee in the House dedicated to investigating misconduct and corruption in the Executive branch, Congress would have more oversight over unaccountable bureaucrats and prevent the kind of unbridled power-grabbing that has become President Obama’s calling card.
HRes 693, introduced by Rep. Tom Yoho (R-FL), would do just that: establish a permanent Select Committee on Executive Oversight. This committee would investigate allegations of misconduct by officials of the Executive branch and have the power to issue subpoenas.
As the Representatives of the people, our House members are constitutionally tasked with holding the Executive branch accountable to protect us from abuses of power and infringement upon our personal liberties by the President of the United States.
Enough is enough!
Sign the petition to tell the House of Representatives: it’s time to
reign in the imperial presidency and demand accountability from our Commander
in Chief! No one is above the law.
