“As long as they insist on taking no action whatsoever that will help anybody, I’m going to keep on taking actions on my own that can help the middle class, like the actions I’ve already taken to speed up construction projects and attract new manufacturing jobs and lift workers’ wages and help students pay off their student loans,” US President Obama said directed to Republicans.
“Middle-class families can’t wait for Republicans in Congress to do stuff. So sue me. As long as they’re doing nothing, I’m not going to apologize for trying to do something,” he added.
House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, announced that he is going to file a lawsuit against Obama for overusing of executive authority through executive orders.
