Sen. Mike Lee: Obamacare Delays 'Shameless Power Grab'

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) blasted President Barack Obama on Sunday for his myriad Obamacare delays designed to circumnavigate the looming midterm elections and the Constitution.

“This is a shameless act, a shameless power grab that is designed to help the president and his political party achieve a particular outcome in a partisan election,” Lee said on Fox News Sunday.

Lee added, “The solution is for the president to come to Congress and make the case to Congress on the policy merits of this question that Congress needs to act. It is not the president’s prerogative to simply make this the law by the stroke of the executive pen.”

Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA), appearing on the same program, disagreed, saying that if Obama’s actions were unconstitutional someone would have sued by now.

“If this were against the Constitution, someone would have sued by now and the president would have to stop,” said Becerra.
