Americans not want you play the enabler this ideological President determinedly undermines American constitutional principles. was the Presidents agenda that was the ballot, and the voters delivered landslide mandate fight and stop it. Thats why Republicans won the election overwhelmingly.  Failure fight Obamas transformation using each and every means Congress disposal betrayal that mandate, and broader context, betrayal your oath office support and defend the U.S. Constitution. 
 
Americans look the 114th Congress their voice against avaricious federal government where rich and powerful corporations fight with rich and powerful unions and government funded advocacy groups for scraps the public trough, the expense those who dont have Street offices.   
 
Americans demand that Congress stand against and stop using the law artificially create winners and losers  process that corrupts everyone and thing touches. 
 
 Shine the light oversight abuse power  

 
This Congress has historic opportunity restore the faith the people their government holding serious hearings how the Administration executes, breaks, ignores the laws. Hold officials responsible.  Each Committee should produce biennial report detailing how the agencies and departments for which responsible misuse taxpayer dollars waste, fraud, abuse and repetitive programs. should also detail any and all obstruction, refusal implement laws, abuse power and targeting political adversaries.

 Return Regular Order 

 
 Legislation starts with subcommittees. involves holding hearings which the public and experts participate. Legislation should not land, manipulated press spin, the floor after White House meeting leadership direction Rules Committee. 

 Members should always have adequate time review, amend, and debate legislation. 

 Budgeting, authorizations, and appropriations processes should proceed through committees Regular Order empowering committees, Members, Senators and the public rather than concentrate power leadership. 

 
Issues that will come right away and are top line importance The NLRB changing the definition employer for franchises make easier for unions organize fast food workplaces. also refuses release any information about how why changing its definitions employer and employee. has secret and unknowable rules and procedures aimed destroying individuals and firms. The NLRB must stopped.  

 
Congress must stop the NLRB's new raid American business passing bill that states clearly what means employer and sending the president for his signature. the president vetoes the bill, the Appropriations Committees can withdraw funding from the NLRB alters the definition joint employer from what was January 2014. They can also state that funds shall used litigate any matter relating the joint employer status. Third, they can specify that funds should used for any NLRB purpose until such time the General Counsel's office publically releases all Advice Memoranda regarding joint employers.  
 
However not enough engage stop-gap efforts rein rogue agencies like the NLRB, Congress has responsibility strip away the power granted these agencies investigator, prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner matters before them, returning the judicial authority that appropriate branch government. These actions will force fundamental transformation these agencies ending their potential abuse power forever. The Administration and some Members Congress want pass vast free-trade zone pact among nations, the Trans Pacific Partnership. Congress should move very carefully considering whether cede any additional power Executive Branch that has proven unwilling constrained the Constitutional powers rightfully holds.  Granting this President what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called, an enormous grant power, obviously, from Republican Congress Democratic president environment where the Executive Branch has declared war the separation powers should only done the interests the United States overwhelmingly demand it. Focus upon stopping the Presidents politically motivated illegal immigration policies that harm the wage earning potential Americas workforce.  The populist storm the last election was the natural backlash abiding and correct sense that hard work pays less today than the past.  Andrew Cherlin Johns Hopkins reports that 1996, the average 30-year-old man with high school degree earned 20% less than comparable man 1979. Every Americans opportunity achieve the dream prosperity being shattered sense that those who work are being played for fools those who have found ways manipulate the system their benefit.    The belief that the economic system relatively fair underlies the American ethos that you work hard enough, you can get ahead.  The current failed government manipulated system, including allowing millions illegal entrants into the country compete for jobs and artificially lower wages, tears the fabric this principle and must prevented. incumbent this Congress defund President Obamas illegal granting amnesty. The administration wants new Authorization for the Use Military Force.  This opportunity 

have serious debate about the nature the enemy are confronting  the Global Jihad Movement  and the sort counter-ideological strategy must adopt are have any chance defeating them. The President repopulating the Global Jihads leadership releasing more and more detainees from Guantanamo Bay.  Whether these are actual commanders, like the five given back the Taliban exchange for accused deserter, simply hardened jihadists great symbolic value their team, more should turned loose. Bipartisan Iran sanctions legislation scheduled for early consideration the Congress.  Favorable action this bill has taken even greater urgency given the signals sent the President over the holidays that not only determined finish deal with Tehran  one whose terms ensure that the mullahs will get the Bomb  but that, having done so, would willing normalize relations with this regime sworn our destruction. The U.S. military extremis result the combined effects of: thirteen years combat operations; sustained and draconian budget cuts; lack investment modernization, training and readiness; social engineering that has undermined its culture; and crisis leadership  with many those the top the pyramid, starting with the Commander-in-Chief, failing provide and with many who once did now purged from the ranks. Hearings that make record support corrective actions need prominent feature the new Congress, and then the corrective actions need forthcoming. 

CONCLUSION 
Congress has historic opportunity lay down marker for freedom and stop the erosion freedom emanating from the pen President Obama.  They were elected just that, not only stop the fundamental transformation America, but create the alternative vision prosperous, free America where citizens know that hard work the pathway success. They were elected protect and defend the Constitution from the tidal wave encroachments that threaten the basic God-given freedom from government that individuals are guaranteed. 
They were elected stop and reverse the Presidents agenda and policies. They were not elected relinquish more power, compromise and enable Obama use their acquiescence justify continued abuses.  
Failure fully engage this historic political battle over the future the nation not statesmanship governing, base betrayal both the principles Congress swore defend and those who entrusted them just that. expect take stock Congress progress annually the American Mandate preserve Americas greatness, started the men who pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor establish self-government and liberty opposed being governed king. the least this Congress can push back for and those daring founders who had bold vision.
