House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) is leading the charge against the "Imperial Presidency." In March, he helped shepherd the adroitly acronymed ENFORCE the Law Act (for "Executive Needs to Faithfully Observe and Respect Congressional Enactments") through the House. Gene Healy explains how the bill actually subverts separation of powers principles in an attempt to enforce them and that the courts are unlikely to comply.
