Richard Land: GOP Should Put a Bill a Week on Obama's Desk

When Republicans take control the House and Senate in January they should "put a bill a week" on President Barack Obama's desk, and let him veto each one, Dr. Richard Land tells Newsmax.

"And I'd start with the keystone pipeline," Land, the president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, told J.D. Hayworth and Francesca Page on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Thursday.

"Put the keystone pipeline on his desk and dare him to veto it, that way he'll have the AFL-CIO and other Democrats on his back," he explained.

"Force the senators in the Senate to either override or vote to support the president's vetoing of the keystone pipeline, which would lower gas prices, help our energy security and create about 20,000 jobs immediately," he said.

"That might actually be a bill that they could override his veto on because there are enough Democrats that don't want to be on record opposing the keystone pipeline," he added.

After that, the Republicans should tackle tax reform and Obamacare.

"They have a moral obligation to repeal Obamacare and put it on the president's desk," Land contends.

"They pledged to do so, they promised to do so, they need to do so, and when he vetoes it — break it up, come back piecemeal — and they need come after the most unpopular parts of Obamacare and put bills rescinding those things like the medical devices tax on the president's desk, and dare him to veto them," he explained.

"If he's going to be that stubborn, that obdurate, and that blind to what the American people are telling him, then let him become known as president veto," he said.

According to the president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, voters are "frustrated at the direction of the country and the failure of Obama's policies."

"The American people clearly and resoundingly rejected his policies and they're giving the Republicans another opportunity to do better," Land said.

"But, if they don't do better, then the people won't support them," contends.

"The Republicans have an opportunity, but they've got to open that door, they've got to go through it, they've got to produce policies that will benefit the American people, get this economy going again, and restore American respect and American influence around the world," he added.

Land also recommends that the Republicans put a two-year moratorium on confirming Obama's judicial nominations "until after the American people have had an opportunity to elect a new president," especially since the Democrats "did away with the filibuster for a judicial nomination."
