Marchant's Statement on President's 'Recess' Appointments

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24) released the following statement responding to President Obama's four appointments to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the National Labor Relations Board, circumventing the Senate's constitutional role of advice and consent:

"I am deeply disappointed in the President's recent decision to make "recess' appointments while Congress remains in session. This political move shows a blatant disregard for the Constitution and an abuse of executive power.

"Especially troubling is the President's appointment to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) of Richard Cordray who was previously rejected by the Senate. The American people have been denied transparency and accountability over a powerful agency that has the potential to hinder job creation."
