Recess appointments should come when — get this — the U.S. Senate is actually in recess. That’s exactly what the DC Court of Appeals ruled earlier this year in a court case challenging President Obama’s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). In fact, Chief Judge on the DC Court of Appeals, David B. Sentelle, said if the president’s illegal appointments were allowed to stand it “would demolish the checks and balances inherent in the advice-and-consent requirement” in the Constitution.
Despite Judge Sentelle’s strong words and the court’s firm ruling, the Obama administration has taken a defiant stance and the president’s illegal appointees to the NLRB are still running this rogue agency.
Now it’s time to TAKE ACTION!
The House of Representatives has introduced legislation, H.R. 1120, that would shut down the NLRB until its board consists of a quorum of valid, legal appointees.
