On Wednesday, the U.S. President Barack Obama continued slamming republicans to move forward to sue him over the use of executive actions. He stated that it is mere “political stunt”. He then urged Congress to “stop hatin’ all the time.”
During an event in Kansas City, he stated, “They have announced that they are going to sue me for taking executive actions to help people. They’re mad because I’m doing my job.”
President Obama called the vote valuable taxpayer dollars’ wastage stated that the Republicans are taking time away from more important legislation that they should be looking into.
Chuckling in the event, he said, “Stop being mad all the time,” he said of Republicans, chuckling. Stop just hatin’ all the time. Let’s get some work done.”
Later on Wednesday, the House was expected to pass a resolution for authorizing a lawsuit against President Obama for what Republicans state his overstepping of authority as an executive.
This is not the first time that the president has challenged Republicans on the lawsuit. In the month of July, when John Boehner, the House Speaker, threatened the president’s move, Obama said, “middle-class families can’t wait for Republicans in Congress to do stuff. So sue me.”
