Meadows Comments on President Obama's Unconstitutional "Recess" Appointments


Location: Washington, DC

Representative Mark Meadows (NC-11) released the following statement on a federal appeals court's overturning of President Obama's controversial "recess" appointments to the National Labor Relations Board.

"Today's ruling is a win for the American people and our nation's Constitution. It also sends a strong message to President Obama that he is not above the law. We have a separation of powers for a reason, and the president's attempt to unilaterally appoint three people to the National Labor Relations Board when the Senate was not in recess was a clear violation of that.

"It is my hope that the same judgment is applied to the president's appointment of Richard Cordray to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. I encourage President Obama to end this charade and not appeal the issue to the Supreme Court in some misguided attempt to preserve his power grab."
