Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., slammed the Obama administration at a Foreign Relations Senate Committee meeting about being lectured about the Constitution by an administration that routinely ignores and subverts it.
This is an administration who I believe has trampled the Constitution at many turns. This is an administration that seeks to legislate when it is not in their purview, whether it be immigration, whether it be health care, or whether it now be a war that’s been going on for eight months without congressional authorization.
Paul continued in his rant by remarking on signing Tom Cotton’s open letter to Iran that said any agreement reached on Iran’s nuclear program would have to be approved by Congress. He said that the letter was really a message to Obama and an administration that doesn’t understand the role of Congress.

“The message was to President Obama, that we want you to obey the law, we want you to understand the separation of powers,” Paul said. “The president says, ‘Oh, the Congress won’t do what I want, so I’ve got a pen and I’ve got my phone and I’m going to do what I want.’ The letter was to you.”
