Johanns & Barrasso call Obama'a NLRB appointments 'unconstitutional'

Posted: Updated:

Several KOTA Territory U.S. Senators are calling for the immediate resignation of President Obama's appointees to the National Labor Relations Board.

Last week, a circuit court of appeals ruled the president violated the constitution when he appointed members to the board.

The senate was not in recess, therefore the Commander in Chief needed to confer with the senate.

Today, Republicans John Barrasso and Mike Johanns express outrage to their colleagues on the president's disregard to the constitution.

"Instead of going around congress, instead of going around the constitution, it is time for the Obama Administration to work with us on nominations," explains Barrasso.

"He promised the nation that he would preserve and defend the constitution of the United States," says Johanns. "But I fear... that now what we are seeing is a flaunting of that very document."

Johanns adds that the 'National Labor Relations Board' should recognize that it is time to leave and to honor the constitution.
