GOP Celebrates Effort to Blunt Obama's Executive Power

House Republicans "say they're proud of their 2013 campaign to stymie President Obama's regulatory agenda, even as Congress comes under fire for one of its least productive years," The Hill reports.

"The bitterly divided Congress will pass fewer laws in 2013 than any year in modern history. As a result of the gridlock, President Obama has turned to his administration's regulatory authority in pursuit of key policy goals, including efforts to tackle gun violence and climate change."

Said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT): "We're left with no choice. The president can't just go it alone, that's not who we are as a country."
