Congressman Calls Obama’s Debt Ceiling Proposal “An Impeachable Act” (Video)

Ben Johnson, The White House Watch

Not all Republicans are rolling over in the face of President Obama’s unconstitutional usurpation of power. Rep. Tim Scott, R-SC, said if the president moves forward with a plan to raise the debt ceiling without Congressional authority, he would consider it “an impeachable act.” Scott told the Tea Party group LowCountry 9.12 on Tuesday:

This president is looking to usurp congressional oversight to find a way to get it done without us. My position is that is an impeachable act, from my perspective. There are a lot of things people say, “Are you going to impeach the president over that?” — No. But this? This is catastrophic. This jeopardizes the credibility of our nation if one man can usurp the entire system set up by our Founding Fathers over something this significant…There will be a revolt among the American people, and that’s what it takes.

Americans are fortunate some Congressmen take their oath of office seriously. And Rep. Scott is right; it is going to take a citizens’ uprising to force Congress to do what is right. We have to be willing to do our part to hold the president accountable for his crimes. Congress must have the courage to do its part and begin impeachment. And Heaven knows, Barack Obama has done his part.

    Obumer has commited enough crimes to be impeached over, but the republicans sit back sucking their thumbs. This is one of the reasons I am no longer a registered republican. Damocrat or republican, there is no difference between them.

    • Chess Game says:

      Do not trow the baby out with the water. There are new Congress players. give them a chance. Again. the Republicans own only the decisions in Congress and can not override traitor obama and the Senate still run by the useful idiot reid.

    • Hey guy, I feel your pain, I really do, but not being registered as a Republican puts you in the position of NOT voting on the person you want to be nominated in 20012. If everyone did that, we wouldn't have the candidate of our choice in the next election. We gotta stick together, stay rallied, to be the united power that it will take. I know the GOP is corrupted right now, but we the Tea Party have to use them this time until we can reclaim our GOP. We the Tea Party People will get the most conservative, capable candidate available! The majority of American citizens are passionate for the grass roots Tea Party movement!

    Really sick of all the talk, when the time comes, sign me up !

    • gataheart says:

      Talkers and those who wait on others never get anything done. Spirit is good but the 'will' weak. America is on the precipice and hanging on by a thread ..just what the BIG 'o' wants ..and I say GIVE IT TO HIM !!

  3. IMPEACH OBUMMASS ALREADY…what the hell are we waiting for???

  4. This would be just one more impeachable act by this president that Congress will ignore. I believe many on both sides of the Isle are complicit in Obama's crimes against the Constitution since they keep ignoring his crimes.

    • James Bennett says:

      Hotyeh: I agree for two years Obama has violated the law and could have been impeached at least a year ago however, The people we sent to Washington doesn't have the fortude to even bring up the word of impeachment. They are all afraid of the Black Brother rioting burning etc. With Obama they have an open check book along with all the Illegals and they plan on giving him 4 more years to destroy America!

      Jim Bennett

  5. At least one member of Congress is willing to utter the "I" word (Impeachment) on one issue. There are actually many other issues they could impeach Obama on. First, they should investigate his original Long Form Birth Certificate to see if it has been forged. Then the US Supreme Court needs to rule if a person (regardless of where they may be born) who has a parent that is NOT a US citizen (his father was British), could be declared a "natural born" (as opposed to a "native born") citizen & whether being adopted by an Indonesian step father would also affect his claim to be a "natural born" US citizen. Another major point of possible impeachment: going to war in Libya without either a declaration of war or consent of Congress. There are several other points he could be impeached on!

  6. Valerie says:

    Representative Scott is the voice of reason in the unreasonable world of politics today.

    I suppose he, Cain and West are racist, too? It's time to stop this government by the few and make those in the current administration realize they work for us.

    Let's show them the door in 2012 and stop this madness. Impeach Obama now!

    • I'm so so glad to see someone with sense.
      Thank you Representative Scott. WE ARE ALL BEHIND YOU. WOO HOO!!!!!!!!! Now these Obots can't throw the "racist" card in.

  7. Chess Game says:

    What else is new? obama is a dictator in chief. None has investigated his possible involvement in Kenya in 2007, when he was a senator. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6vBRJIBp2I

    obama' s roots are in Kenya. Can he be impeached sooner rather than later?

    Raymond

    Hate suspects sought after pig's head thrown at proposed mosque
    A pig's head was thrown on to the roof of a disused pub which is due to be turned into a mosque.
    A video has been posted on the YouTube website, in which a shot of a dismembered pig is followed by footage of two men clearly throwing something on top of The Plough, a former rock pub on Manor Road in Bletchley.
    And police have confirmed they are treating it as a religiously motivated hate crime after they discovered some ‘pork products’ at 11.40am on Friday, June 24.
    The pub is due to be converted into a Muslim place of worship after the plan received permission on Thursday, April 14, and has already been the subject of vandalism – there are also reports of this type of incident happening before.

    • Carl Koch says:

      And this is bad how? Sorry, Raymond, ISLAM is not a religion. It is a form of theocratic government with quasi religious trappings to make it more palatable to us, the ignorant.

      • stan S.C. says:

        i Agree Carl. There're Reports that mosque are being used as training facilities for terrorist ! How much longer are We going to Tolerate This Abuse and outright Unlawful Acts to Overthrow the Government of Our Nation ? These so called "in the name of religion" are Nothing More than A Tactic of Using Our Constitution Against America ! God Bless America

      • carol,az says:

        Thank you Carl: added to that, Congress voted on, and will allow, 10,000 new Muslins to immigrate here ea. year. All countries in Europe are cutting back on immigration for Muslins..The Aussies have said NO to future immigration .Here's a few reasons:.
        Female mutilation, honon killings, court systems forced to rule using Muslim law. Terror threats throughout Europe. Terrror bombings in every major country in Europe.Terror cells broken up in every major European city. Plot to blow-up American planes leaving Germany. Bus bombings in England and other bombings in Italy . Massive unemployment in Europe and within the Muslim communities. Isolationism to the culture, laws, language and social ways of the country they live in. Establishment of Muslim schools for further brain washing. As Stan stated , "training terroist camps called Mosques' under the banner of terrorism. Have we learned nothing?

  11. sanysue says:

    obama has done done so many illegal acts since he's been in office that he should have been impeached the first 6 mom he was in office.. why are the democrats and the republicans letting him get away with this,, because he's a black muslim.. i dont care about offendiong the musilims or anyone else in the world… we need a president that follows our constitution and the declaration of independence.. obama is already making a run for re election, and what did he do?? he made a campaign video in the white house which is illegel..the polotitions need to step up and stop sheilding this abomamation of a president.. he doesnt represent the citizens of america, every thing he does is either a lie or for his own taking the us totally under his control and what he thinks will benefit him and the muslims.. he is not an AMERICAN..

  12. Rep. Tim Scott, R-SC Way to go!!!!! :)

  13. Robert Briley says:

    Obama has violated the constitution numerous times. It is time congress stand up to him and be counted.

  14. Edward Perkins says:

    FINALLY I have heard a congressman make the point that there are grounds to impeach Obama. Obama has no respect for our constitution and he made that clear BEFORE he was ever elected as our President. Now we are seeing his actions betraying the constitution, the oath he took and the will of the American people. He thinks he can use his "Executive Powers" to do anything he wants. Its time that we, the people, AND the sitting congress let him know that he ether follows the constitution or we will IMPEACH HIM!

  15. Resolutions of impeachment are long overdue against King Obama; sadly, no one in Congress has the spine for it because they know they and their entire family will be personally and visciously attacked by the Dem Machine – it's the Chicago Way.

  16. Frankly, I'm beginning to get bored with the rhetoric coming from our elected officials. It seems as if we are beginning to hear a daily statement that something this wantabe dictator has said or done is an impeachable act. The mere presence of Obama in the White House and flagrantly violating the Constitution and the wishes of the United States citizens calls for action on the part of our elected officials. Additionally, the fact that there has yet to be ONE of the 435 electeds to step forward and show he/she has a backbone and begin the process that DEMANDS that this man answer to the American voter is mind boggling. I can only surmise from the lack of action on their part that they are AFRAID of this skinny jerk. (incidentally, this is NOT to be construed as disrepect. I certainly respect the office – yet, have NONE for this usurper).It's time one of them stepped up and showed the public that they are in Washington to do the job they "promised" to do. Otherwise, DO NOT bore me with this continued political rhretoric.

  17. Altho I fully agree with the people who send thees coments I feel like I hav to send one that dont hav anthing that dos with the issue. I wish that sum people wood chek there speling and grammer before sending there coments because it makes them look like they don no nothing and they cant talk to good nether but what they say makes alot of sents.

    • And your spelling, and grammer is worth what? lmao

    • joseph g says:

      Rick! I know you are not that stupid. There fore please do not be facetious.

      • Joseph! You're correct….I'm not that stupid. In fact, I'm not stupid at all. It seems my facetiousness is outweighed only by your lack of a sense of humor. (By the way, "therefore" is one word.)

  18. Jack B. says:

    The "I" word should be more than uttered, it should be shouted from the mountain tops because this president is attempting to render Our Congress into a useless entity. Just think for a moment, the Congress is the closest branch to the voice of the people and when that is extinguished, this intruder in chief will control us. He is systematically unweaving the very threads of our democracy and destroying our Nations foundation. Hell yes IMPEACH!!!

  19. John Grychak says:

    This guy (O'Bama) or who ever the hell he is, should be IMPEACHED ASAP, what are you waiting for. The longer you wait the worse he does.

  20. GrizzBar says:

    The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of
    entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to
    limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the
    necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to
    have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more
    serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming
    the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of
    fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama,
    who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude
    of fools such as those who made him their president.

  21. you want to know about the federal reserve fraud about the communist takeover of america

    WAKE UP henrymakow com infowars com wake up wake up wake up

    OBAMA the LIAR said he would uphold the constitution and he is DESTROYING THE CONSTITION

    wake up wake up wake up

  22. Way to say it plain and simple Rep Tim Scott! There will be a war, there will be a fight, there will be a revolt if Mr Obummer by-passes our Constitutionally set up gov't AGAIN!
    He's already by-passed Congress on a number if Commie control issues he wants, thru the Dept of Energy, thru the EPA, thru his czars, etc., etc. WE THE PEOPLE are sick to death over his steam rolling agenda!

  23. Mike Tanco says:

    Let's stop talking about impeaching Obama and file charges on him. He has broken the Constitution more than any other President. It has been proven that the document he released as his birth certificate is a forgery. He has a SS number from the state of Connecticut. Now he wants to spend the United States into the poor-house.
    He is a liar and a all around bad person. He is still a Muslim and is trying to destroy the U.S. from within just as the Islam faith says it will. Get him out of office before it's too late. Mike Tanco

  24. In my opinion Obama should have been impeached long time ago. It is a high time to impeach him now before he will do more damage to our Country.

    • The GOP is on the take with the Soros funds as well as the Dems. This is a true combined effort. Americans will sell their sould for money and especially when you no longer live in the real world, but rather DC. Vote every incumbent out IF WE GET TO VOTE THAT IS!

  25. Forevermyrtle says:

    What differance does it make, impeachablel or not, there is not a person that has the guts to act on it. I am so sick of what is going on, impeachable act after impeachable act, over and over and not one responsible person will take the ball and run with it.

    • Preston Jemmott says:

      Because this Congress is afraid of a black uprising in this country if anyone goes against Obama Well its time these elected representatives stand up to this low life once and for all and do what is called for IMPEACH NOW

      • Forevermyrtle says:

        If we want to survive asa free country, this is absolutely neccessary. If Congress fails to act and they will drag us and the entire country down the tube into slavery. They may be saved from slavery by the imposter but I doubt it. He will use them just as he will use us.

  26. Ok Rep Tim Scott said what he said, the "IMPEACHABLE" thing ..but what would he be prepared to do when this will probably happen! Will he put his money where his mouth is or will it just be talk!!! ACTION we need talk we get to much of!!

  27. Seeks_the_truth says:

    Obama has committed impeachable ACTS. (plural) There is NO DOUBT about this. There is only ONE ISSUE in question. Who is it that has the GUTS to do anything about it? This is the ONLY issue standing in the way. Not ONE of our Congressmen have the balls to do anything about it.

  28. he has done many crimes that he needs to be impeached now action is needed not more talk.

  29. Everyone – contact your Reps and Sens, also your State legislatures. Insist on investigations and impeachment based on Numerous attempts to subvert the Constitution. Insist that the Constitution, Bill of Rights and State's Rights be defended at National and State levels. Choose your arguments:

    False Birth Certificate claimed by him to be official.
    39 Social Security numbers identified by Taitz.
    His DOJ not enforcing laws unless they fulfill his agenda.
    Energy policies which purposefully weakens the USA.
    Illegals and Amnesty stands while sueing AZ for attempting to enforce laws.
    Forced purchase of product (health ins) – What's next, GM cars?
    Bankruptcy of the USA.
    NLRB fight against Boeing – will they now relocate foreign?
    Class warfare and State vs State warfare which could result in Civil War II.

    If common sense prevails, he will be seen to be a bigger enemy than was Bin Laden.

  30. Stop talking and do something to impeach this person from ruining our country. Stand up and be counted.

  31. Obama must be impeached for his ineligibility. The reason is that those criminals who were involved in the scam to allow an illegal alien to be president and the cover-up can be removed from congress allowing us to regain control over our government again.

    If Obama were to be impeached for another one of his acts of treason, criminals such as Pelosi, Reid, Boehner, etc would get off the hook and continue to destroy our nation. We have a unique opportunity to rid our government of these corrupt scumbags now and we must take advantage of it.

    The fact that the documents are forged is indisputable and no person in Hawaii will face charges of High Treason to protect this criminal known as Obama. As of today no Hawaii official will answer questions concerning the fake COLB or take credit for producing it This is a slam dunk case.

  32. When I call my congressman to demand impeachment I remind him that those who sit there and do nothing while treason is being committed are also guilty of treason.

    They say the leadership of congress are blocking any attempts to address the issue. This is why we must have millions call congress daily to demand impeachment. Jamming the phones stopped the amnesty years ago and it will work to impeach the criminal in the White House if we can organize this. If not they will lead us into a nuclear war with Russia and China.

    I choose the phone calls over nuclear war. What do you choose?

  33. Edwardkoziol says:

    Tim is our congressmen and this is why we elected him,he is no push over like Clyburn is.Hopefully he will always do right by the people who elected him and for the US of America.Can I get an AMEN on that

  34. VirgoVince says:

    Everything that illegal, ineligible African muslim has done and is doing is IMPEACHABLE, but is he????
    If he IS, WHY hasn't it been done and if he ISN'T, WHY hasn't he been arrested and removed from the White House???? Take your pick, something has to be done, but what's taking so long, like 2 1/2 yrs too late????
    I can't believe what's going on here, with all this time, totally wasted and we're totally vulnerable!! YOU let him do it and get away with it, why should he stop now!! WHO's going to stop him??

  35. This man is a total criminal; but he is "slicker" than slick willie Clinton…I hope and pray congress will grow a "pair" and impeach this fraud….before it is too late for our country to recover….They MUST ACT SOON!!!

  36. It’s clear to me that members of congress are plumb full of deceit. The useless bums obstruct justice all the time because they are corrupt. This talk of black backlash uprising garbage is nothing but another collaborative lie.( A brainwashing for the white folks.) If these bums should be afraid of anything, is the blacks and whites uprising, TOGETHER. UNITED. by the millions. History, the Bible and our Constitution shows this is possible.

  37. Ridge Runner says:

    If we could get a bout 2,000,000 or 3,ooo,ooo people in washington d.c.and if every one would piss at the same time in the rat hole maybe we could flush the rats out.

  38. Ridge Runner says:

    If this sob attempts to by congress and congress doesn’t stop him we had better get this march on d.c. started

    • Betsy K. Larsen says:

      If we could get a few million, or MORE MILLION, we might just get the job done ourselves! By sheer numbers and sheer force of our WILL! But therein lies the question, can we get enough energized PATRIOTIC AMERICANS TOGATHER TO DO THIS? It was the lack of common sense among the American people who got us this imposter, this infection, invader, this filthy muslimE peice of trash voted into office in the first place. Common sense and the lack of will to investigate just who and WHAT they were voting for, as president for our country. Most of them didn’t know, and didn’t bother to find out, what this POS was before they cast their votes for him…..and I beleive that they are too lazy to want to get off their comfortable couches, with their video games and snacks, to want to actually repair the damage that their lazy and stupid actions caused the whole country. And to make it worse, we have a congress and senate who are too cowardly to do their jobs, the jobs they were basically HIRED to do. Meanwhile, the mexican ILLEGALS and the filthy musimEs are taking what belongs to us, the PEOPLE OF AMERICA and trashing everything we spent over 200 years building. Building into a free and beautiful, and prosperous nation! If left to these dregs of societies, America will become what their own trashed and useless nations are today, along with their enslaved peoples. Enslaved by their own governments and their false gods and “religions”! The mexicans once were Catholic, but it now looks as if they are serving the Guns and Drug Lords as their “gods”. Sorry mexicans, until YOU Go back and retake your country from the hands of the criminals who now run it, you are no better than the filth that is called muslime!!!! Get out of our country and go take care of your own!!! Americans have quite enough trouble, without musimes and other such destructive beings here ruining everything they look at and touch! And if my attitude and words make me a Racist, so be it.

  39. TWO DIFFERENT DOCTORS' OFFICES

    Boy, if this doesn't hit the nail on the head, I don't know what does!

    Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint.
    Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

    The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

    The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week
    And finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then.

    Why the different treatment for the two patients?

    The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
    The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

  40. I tried to post something concerning our heath care system, but
    the website administrators blocked it AGAIN.

  41. Carolyn, lighten up a little. My post was written in a humorous vein…….seriously!!!!!
    And Carolyn, "grammar" is spelled with an "a".

  42. Janie, thank you.

  43. Lloyd Christmas says:

    if you want to be worth a million dollars and still be poor then vote for obama. There is no excuse for doubling the already huge bush debt in half the time. Since obama is only good at talking then it might be time to apologize to black politicians for messing it up for them for another 50 years
