Tax money to sue President of the United States must be made Consitutioally illegal

Do the lawyers who are paid huge money to sue President Obama on behalf of Speaker Boehner understand the purpose of the government's system of "checks and balances"?  A lawsuit undermines this Constitutional system.

Moreover, are tax dollars being used to pay for a challenge to executive authority?

I can't understand how Americans, regardless of their personal political affiliations, can approve of having hard earned tax money used to sue the President of the United States.  

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R) is unhappy with President Obama. What's new? Therefore, Boehner should use his personal resources to launch a liability claim, rather thann waste tax dollars on a frivolous lawsuit.

Unfortunately, Boehner found somebody with enough money to throw at a lawyer who's willing to take on the responsibility of launching a lawsuit against President Obama.  

Meanwhile, it makes no sense to sue the president, because the actions on the claims won't be determined until 2016, when Mr. Obama's term as President is complete. Even more ridiculous is the precedence Speaker Boehner sets for future presidents. Surely Americans realize how Boehner's litigious  actions will open this avenue of reproach for future presidents, thereby incapacitating our system of checks and balances.  

If Speaker Boehner wants to take legal action against President Obama he should take one of two actions: (a) initiate impeachment, but on what grounds?; or (b) pay for a lawsuit with his own money.

If each of the US government's three branches of government have equal authority to push back on the other two, then President Obama has the authority to provide an executive order when the legislative branch is incapable of taking action. 

Nevertheless, the Republicans finally found an attorney willing to accept the money needed to launch a challenge to American's long standing Constitutional system of checks and balances.  

House Republicans have hired their third attorney since August to pursue their lawsuit against President Barack Obama for allegedly overstepping his authority, tapping George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, according to House Speaker John Boehner’s office. (Who is paying Turley?)

A Boehner law suit puts executive Constitutional authority at risk. Boehner's outrageous action will undoubtedly be turfed to the third branch of government, the judicial branch. Court action to support the lawsuit,, or not, must be applied to all future Presidents.  

When the Legislative branch is allowed to sue the Executive branch, the system of checks and balances will be undermined.  

In other words, the President of the United States will be incapacitated.  

Veto will be the only power allowed and this will take a simple 2/3 vote to override.  Otherwise, Presidents will be unable to act.  

To the American voter, the Republicans must be put out of office. These ambitious group of right wing politicians are determined to undermine the US Constitution so they can rule like dictators.

Unfortunately, Americans haven't seen through the GOP political smoke and mirrors, whereby Republicans use fear to mask their nefarious political power ambitions.  

Nevertheless, Republicans like Speaker Boehner and his lock step followers should not be allowed to use American tax money to sue President Obama.  I want to know how Boehner will pay the expenses for Jonathan Turley? Not with my tax money!!
