Ted Cruz releases report on the 20 times the Supreme Court unanimously slapped down an Obama power grab

President Obama’s frequent referrals to executive orders may not materialize as often as they have in other stances in history, but his thirst for presidential overreach has caused enough concern amongst defenders of the Constitution.

What puts President Obama at the top of the list of statesmen who happen to have shown disposition in seeking more power than what is given to them is not only related to executive orders. Obama’s appointed officials, who are hand-picked by the president to run powerful cabinet offices and often bypass Senate confirmation, are also great examples of how Obama can use his presidency to stretch the power of the executive, creating thus menacing precedents.

According to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the Supreme Court has rejected at least 20 cases involving personal freedom. In order to ensure the public is aware of the many instances President Obama’s opinion was reportedly struck down, Cruz released reports on the administration’s efforts to expand federal government.

His latest, and fifth, report covers most of everything.

According to Cruz, the consequences that would have taken place in case President Obama’s arguments had passed could result in substantial changes to the U.S. law system. Cruz’s team has released a report on the matter, and it carries a list of power overreach stories.

While the Supreme Court has rejected Obama’s arguments, which could have been easily used against you and me if he had had his way, the release offers a look into what the U.S. could like in the future if the rulings had been different.

According to Cruz’s press release, the federal government would have the authority under the law to install GPS systems in your vehicle to spy on you, impose double taxation, end private property and expand the federal government’s criminal law if the Supreme Court had ruled in favor of Obama’s and the DOJ’s arguments at all times.

Other dreadful and potential consequences may have also included unilaterally installing officers without asking for the Senate confirmation, the search of cell phone content even in the absence of a warrant, and the fact authorities would probably be charging drug users with crimes committed by drug sellers.

By officially reporting on these cases, Ted Cruz makes a great case against President Obama’s power grab, and against any other president’s attempt to increase the federal government’s power.
