Unanimous Decision: SCOTUS Finds President Obama’s Recess Appointments Were Unconstitutional

Barack Obama used his recess powers to appoint a head for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and three radical far left members to the NLRB despite the fact that the senate was in session in January 2012.

The Supreme Court today found Barack Obama’s NLRB recess appointments were unconstitutional.
Bloomberg reported:

The U.S. Supreme Court curbed the president’s power to make temporary appointments without Senate approval, backing congressional Republicans and dealing a blow to President Barack Obama.

The justices ruled unanimously that Obama exceeded his constitutional authority when he appointed three members of the National Labor Relations Board in January 2012. Four justices would have gone further in limiting the appointment power.
