GOP to push for short-term continuing resolution if Obama amnesty goes forward
Without the power of the purse in hand, Republicans would have no way to fight against Obama's usurpation, granting amnesty to 4.5 million illegal immigrants. 

Time is up for wind production tax credits
A reasonable statement of belief that wind energy just needs a little help to get off the ground and become financially viable. And it was reasonable, in 1983, when it was made. 

Businesses are bracing for rush of pro-labor rulings
The National Labor Relations Board is expected to release a flurry of pro-labor decisions by mid-December, when Democrats could lose their majority on the federal agency.

Obama: A nation of laws no more
Obama on executive amnesty in 2013: "If, in fact, I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress then I would do so. But we're also a nation of laws." What a difference a year can make.  

Congress considers Keystone XL as Louisiana hangs in balance
While most political pundits are predicting Landrieu's political demise, Senate Democrats are desperate to retain the seat.  They are so desperate that they plan to bring up a vote on the Senate floor on legislation directing that the Keystone XL pipeline be completed.

Crabtree: Conservatives push short-term spending bill as way to defund 'amnesty'
"Do I want Speaker Boehner and Leader McConnell sitting down with Harry Reid to hash out a deal or standing toe-to-toe with Obama next year? I prefer the latter."

ALG - Obama planned executive amnesty sets up constitutional crisis 

6

Nov. 13, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement reacting to a leaked 10-part plan to grant amnesty to 4.5 million illegal immigrant adults with U.S.-born children

"President Obama's leaked plan to usurp congressional authority over immigration should put to an end all talk about a long term omnibus funding bill.  Obama's intent to wave a wand and create amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants in the wake of the November repudiation of this policy is an affront to the consent of the governed. Speaker Boehner and Leader McConnell must swiftly and forcefully tie the President's hands using the power of the purse in the December continuing resolution. If the President chooses to shut down the government in order to benefit illegal aliens then so be it. 

"Even though there are those in Congress who might agree with the concept of providing legalization alternatives for those who have jumped the line, it is simply unacceptable to allow this President to dismantle the constitutional separation of powers in an effort to transform America. Obama is setting up a constitutional crisis."

ALG - If Obama wants 'net neutrality,' he should go to Congress 

6

Nov. 10, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement against attempts by President Obama to persuade the Federal Communications Commission to regulate broadband Internet providers as "common carriers" under the Communications Act of 1934: 

"One of the most disturbing aspects of the Obama administration has been its repeated abuse of executive authority, seizing lawmaking powers otherwise held by Congress. Federal courts have repeatedly ruled that so-called net neutrality — treating Internet broadband as a common carrier under the Communications Act of 1934 — exceeds congressional authority. Rather than taking this as a cue to petition Congress to change the law, Obama is once again pushing the Federal Communications Commission to regulate the Internet as Congress never intended. 

"If Obama wants so-called net neutrality rules, that is, to change the law, he should go to the nation's sole lawmaking institution: Congress."
