The Clock’s Been Ticking Since Obama’s Unconstitutional Recess Appointments

On January 4, 2012, President Obama circumvented the U.S. Senate and made recess appointments to fill vacant seats on the National Labor Relations Board with union cronies Richard Griffin and Sharon Block. Fast forward a year later. On January 25, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit reminded the president that he isn't above the law and ruled the appointments to be unconstitutional.

The ruling dealt a big blow to Big Labor. But the NLRB and President Obama are just dismissing it.

Isn't it pretty obvious that Griffin and Block should step down? Shouldn't President Obama, the former constitutional law professor, ask them to resign?

They show no signs of budging. But, in the meantime, we're going to keep the clock running until they do.
