President Has Duty. Not Senate. Lawsuit Cannot Compel Senate To Act

Is this a SNL routine proposal? Is it about lawsuits, revenge, made up duties? Evans does not say. There are several US legal actions pending regarding the ACA. Article II, Section 2 of Constitution provides a duty for the President, not for the Senate. Read it and weep. Misguided argument would make some sense if the White House did not ignore regularly the Constitution and his duties, in other areas. Why not encourage the President to use executive orders to make SCOTUS appointments? Both President and Vice President argued against making such nominations/appointments during elections and recesses of the Senate. How did Democratic Senators treat the nominations of Judge Robert Bork and Judge Clarence Thomas? Talk about "impoliteness, discourtesy, and political grandstanding." Teehee. BTW a lawsuit cannot compel the Senate to act. This professor emeritus needs to read some law and the Constitution.
