Republicans Block More Recess Appointments

After the United States Senate refused to confirm the appointment of Craig Becker, radical union lawyer, to the National labor Relations board, President Obama waited until the Senate recessed and appointed Becker anyway. Under the United States constitution, many officers must be appointed subject to confirmation by the United States Senate. However, there is an exception. If the Senate is not in session, the president may appoint and the officer does not need to be confirmed until after the next session of Congress.

According to the Washington Examiner:
Sen. Jim DeMint has confirmed that the House will block President Obama from making recess appointments, in the following statement emailed to the Examiner:

“President Obama has been packing federal agencies with left-wing ideologues, but thankfully he won’t be able to for at least the next week. The House will not be sending an adjournment resolution to the Senate, we will remain in pro forma session, and no controversial nominees will be allowed to circumvent the confirmation process during the break.”
According to the Constitution, these recess appointments are only supposed to be for vacancies that "happen during the recess." This is a procedure that President Obama and others before him have seriously abused.
