(Worthy News) - House Republicans on Thursday unveiled a proposal that they believe will put the brakes on executive branch overreach and restore the power of Congress to write laws.
"We can't rely on the courts alone to protect our rights," said House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. "If you have to file a lawsuit, you've already been violated. That is why we need the other branches, especially the legislative branch, to remain strong, so they can defend our rights when another branch attacks them."
Republicans devised the plan, part of its six-part national agenda, in reaction to rules and regulations put forward by the Obama administration that they say are burdensome and aimed at circumventing Congress. [ Source ]
