The Senate GOP conference has asked the Supreme Court to invalidate President Obama’s January 2012 recess appointments as an unconstitutional abuse of power.
All 45 Repubican senators on Tuesday signed on to a brief arguing that Obama overstepped his authority in naming members to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) while the Senate was technically still in session. . . .In January, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit found that Obama’s appointments of three people to the NLRB was unconstitutional. The White House in April asked the Supreme Court to review the case.
