"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

I tried to watch this hearing this morning at 10am, saw it on C-Span, I was going to post a LIVE in-game thread and then I got busy and forgot about it.  It was on C-Span I can no longer find it.  The only video I can find I have posted.

Here is the news on the hearing. If anyone can find the FULL VIDEO on the hearing (especially the Turley testimony)
Please post it I'd like to watch the entire thing.

Congress urged to challenge Obama’s executive actions

By David A. Fahrenthold, Wednesday, February 26, 3:11 PM E-mail the writer

On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee brought in legal experts with a message of tough love.

They testified that the House — indeed, the whole Congress — was a bunch of lily-livered pushovers, unable to stand up to a bully.

“Recently, Congress has seemed — frankly — feckless and uncertain as to its authority,” testified Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University.

Later on, Turley went further. This wasn’t just weakness.

It was worse. Did Congress actually hate itself?

“For Congress not to act, in my view, borders on self-loathing,” he said.

“If you want to stay relevant as an institution,” said Elizabeth Price Foley, a law professor at Florida International University, “I would suggest that you not stand idly by and let the president take your power away.”

The subject of the committee’s hearing was “Enforcing the President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws.” It was the second time in three months that the committee, chaired by Rep. Robert Goodlatte (R-Va.), had examined a recent spate of decisions by President Obama that had altered the implementation of existing laws.

Obama gave a speech on the economy yesterday. This in itself is a scandal. I want to know how much these people were paid to applaud for him.
