Is it worth it? What will the lawsuit actually accomplish?

http://www.politicususa.com/2014/08/25/john-boehners-lawsuit-obama-cost-tax payers-500hour-attorney-fees.html

quote:

Taxpayers should be outraged. It was revealed today that John Boehner’s lawsuit against President Obama will cost the American people $500 an hour in attorney fees.

According to Frank Thorp of NBC News, the contract for the law firm that Boehner hired to represent the House in his lawsuit against President Obama will cost taxpayers $500/hour.

Thorp tweeted:

Democratic Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel ripped Boehner in a statement, “This outrageous waste of taxpayer dollars is yet another reminder of House Republicans’ misguided priorities. Only in John Boehner’s world does it make sense to pay lawyers $500 per hour to work on a partisan lawsuit while refusing to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 for hardworking Americans trying to feed their families.”

This is an absurd waste of money. House Republicans have been blocking an extension of unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed since January because they claim that it is too expensive, but the Speaker is spending more on one hour of legal representation that it would cost in many parts of the country to give an unemployed American their benefits back for a week.

The cost of Boehner’s lawsuit against President Obama has been a closely guarded secret. House Republicans have repeatedly refused to say how much the lawsuit will cost in total, but it is estimated that it will add up to millions of dollars. People need to remember that this frivolous lawsuit represents everything that House Republicans stand for.

The lawsuit will be thrown out of court, but before it is, it will cost taxpayers millions of dollars that could have been used to create jobs, help veterans, or restore benefits to the unemployed. John Boehner is interested in doing what the American people want. His only purpose is to waste taxpayer money with gimmicks that he hopes will keep House Republicans in power.

John Boehner’s Lawsuit Against Obama Will Cost Taxpayers $500/Hour In Attorney Fees was written by Jason Easley for PoliticusUSA.

It's worth every penny. Must spend whatever it takes to make sure Obama isn't reelected again.

Forget compromise and trying to find solutions, just sue anyone who doesn't see eye to eye with you, it's the American way.

Witch hunts against the Clintons and now more wasted tax payer money stupidity by the GOP against Obama. Meanwhile the W Bush administration, the one that should have been heavily investigated for the myriad of trouble they caused were let off the hook. Bottom line is the Republicans can't handle having a Democrat in the White House and will do everything in their power to disrupt and obstruct them when they are. It is so obvious that it boggles the mind.

Amateur with no experience? So, exactly who in the Republican Party has more experience than living in the White House for 8 years, being a U.S. Senator for 8 years, and being Secretary of State?

As opposed to this deep roster of ultra experienced and sane GOP candidates to pick from. Too funny.

Another empty pantsuit.

Really, because I didn't see him answer the question as to who the GOP has to offer that has more experience. I only saw a partisan opinion piece. No answer at all. My guess is that he was sure that Obama was going to lose the last election too because Americans would want someone with more experience, like Romney. So, I really would like a name of someone from the GOP with more experience than Clinton.

It was really fun in 2012 watching all their bat crap nuts candidates rip each other during their numerous debates. It gave very excellent insight into just who was the more insane candidate with the more non reality based far right extreme platform geared toward screwing over the majority so the richest 1% can have a better life.

It is way too early to speculate on who will run for President in 2016.
The Democrats already are aligning behind Hillary of Eliz. Warren. Might as well not even bother with the November mid-terms. They already know as all they major polls clearly show the The Republicans will take over the Senate.
Once the American People have secured total control over The Congress, Obama the incompetent will become impotent.

It is foolish to speculate about the 2016 Presidential race until after November 2014.

That's funny, you were speculating about the election before by saying nobody will vote for Clinton because she isn't experienced enough, and now that I challenged you to give me a name of a single Republican with more experience, suddenly you can't answer and say it's too early to speculate. The GOP in a nutshell right here - all talk and no action. Criticize without offering any solutions.

Stay tuned for Part 2 coming up for the 2016 GOP Primaries. If you liked 2012, you'll love the lead up to 2016. Will the furthest right extremist please stand up.

His point 1. is quite interesting. - 1.) " living in the White House for 8 years" as a wife who's husband wouldn't even have sex with her.

You learn something new everyday. I never knew that this is a qualification for being President. Have sexual acts or frequency been added to textbooks under Presidential Qualifications...just asking?

My guess is that her husband had sex with her, and anyone else he could. Still not sure why that matters as far as qualifications. I just checked the constitution:

"No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."

Nope, nothing about sex in there. I think she meets all of that criteria.

Is the vitriol because of the fear that she will get elected?

I admit, I'm concerned that the Senate will go to the Republicans. I don't think they will get a super majority which just means a lot more of nothing getting done, I suspect that is what the Senate is hoping.

But if America wants the Republicans give, so be it.

Again pure fantasy and fiction on your part. Gallup did a study a couple years back 57% of the wealthiest 1 % identify as Republican.
