Senator Ted Cruz: The Legal Limit Report
In the last 15 months, the U.S. Supreme Court has unanimously rejected 6 instances where the Obama administration argued for increased federal power.
Had President Obama been successful in these six cases, the federal government would have the power to . . .
Attach GPSs to a person’s vehicle to monitor her movements, without having any cause to believe that she had committed a crime (United States v. Jones).
Deprive landowners of the right to challenge government fines as high as $75,000 per day and deny their ability to have a hearing to challenge those fines (Sackett v. EPA).
Interfere with a church’s selection of its own ministers (Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church & School v. EEOC).
Override state law whenever the President desires (Arizona v. United States).
Dramatically extend statutes of limitations to impose penalties for acts committed decades ago (Gabelli v. SEC).
Destroy private property without paying just compensation (Arkansas Fish & Game Commission v. United States).
