GOP Readying Votes on Obamacare and 'Imperial Presidency'

Obamacare and flood insurance top Republicans' agenda as Congress returns to work next week.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said the GOP chamber would put the president and health care in its sights as lawmakers' attention turns from legislating and toward election year posturing.

Cantor labeled President Obama's recent push to sidestep Congress when he can an "imperial presidency," and said the House would act.

"The House will consider a number of bills the week of March 10th designed to restore the balance of power created by our Founders and require that the president faithfully execute our nation's laws," he wrote.

Cantor suggested the House could also vote soon to address changes to Medicare Advantage under Obamacare, and again on the employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act.

The No. 2 Republican also said the House would work on its own flood insurance bill, calling a recently-passed Senate version "a non-starter" in the lower chamber.
