Conservative Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King is reportedly considering introduction of a bill that would repeal everything Obama has signed into law.

According to The Messenger newspaper, King made the comments while speaking to the Humboldt County Republican Party picnic, while reiterating his pledge to take the Obama administration to court over its DHS policy change that defers action against qualifying illegal immigrant students.

”I am bringing him to court and we’re going to defend the Constitution of the United States and the separation of powers,” King said.

King warned Homeland Security Janet Napolitano at a hearing last month that they would “see each other down the line in litigation.”

Before Congress left for the summer recess, King introduced the Sunset Act to require Congress to take an up or down vote on all new rules and regulations put forth by federal departments and agencies.

The legislation would also require that all current regulations be sunsetted and voted on by Congress for renewal.

“The Sunset Act will help to ensure that rules and regulations churned out by Washington bureaucrats are necessary and helpful, not burdensome and problematic,” King said Friday. “…Americans must be able to hold their elected officials accountable for the rules and regulations that the federal government imposes upon them, and the Sunset Act will do just that.”
