No, but with a solidly Democrat dominated Senate, there is nothing that can effectively be done. Lawsuits would take 3 years to reach the Supremes. Obama is showing up the blatant weaknesses of our system by which it has always been assumed that the three branches would play by the rules, and he is laughing while he is rubbing it in our faces. Although he swore to do so on oath, he is not in office to uphold and defend the Constitution, but rather to bring it down. How else do you bring change to a system that is by its very nature intended to be rather fixed and rigid and unchangeable (sans with the authority of 2/3 of the States via the amendment process)?
