It's self evident that the House majority does the majority of the sucking.

In this case you are correct. Only 33 republican's did what they were sent to Washington to do. Stop the moronic spending, stop the job killing Obamacare and cut taxes.

This whole thing is a publicity stunt by Obama anyway. It is just Obama pandering to his base just like Feinstein is to hers with a gun bill that her own party won't pass.

COURT TO OBAMA: ABUSE OF POWER

In a case freighted with major constitutional implications, a federal appeals court on Friday overturned President Obama’s controversial recess appointments from last year, ruling he abused his powers and acted when the Senate was not actually in a recess.
The three-judge panel’s ruling is a major blow to Mr. Obama. The judges ruled that the appointments Mr. Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board are illegal, and the board no longer has a quorum to operate.
But the ruling has even broader constitutional significance, with the judges arguing that the president’s recess appointment powers don’t apply to “intersession” appointments — those made when Congress has left town for a few days or weeks.
The judges signaled the power only applies after Congress has adjourned sine die, which is a legislative term of art that signals the end to a long work period. In modern times, it means the president could only use his powers when Congress quits business at the end of a year.
“The dearth of intersession appointments in the years and decades following the ratification of the Constitution speaks far more impressively than the history of recent presidential exercise of a supposed power to make such appointments,” the judges wrote.
