Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ) issued the following statement after introducing a concurrent resolution expressing the sense of Congress that President Obama violated Section 3 of Article II of the Constitution by refusing to enforce the employer mandate provisions of ObamaCare.

“Our government depends upon the rule of law.  President Obama is in violation of Section 3 of Article II of the Constitution by refusing to enforce the employer mandate provisions of ObamaCare.  The executive branch, which has no constitutional authority to write or rewrite law at whim, has usurped the exclusive legislative power of Congress. 

“Given that ObamaCare has proven to be unworkable, I believe the law should be repealed by Congress immediately.”
