“The fact that they (Republicans) are considering a taxpayer-funded lawsuit against the president of the United States for doing his job, I think, is the kind of step that most Americans wouldn’t support,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Wednesday.

He spoke a few hours after House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) announced that Republicans will sue the president for exceeding his executive authority and for failing to faithfully execute the law of the land.

“You know, the Constitution makes it clear that a president’s job is to faithfully execute the laws,” Boehner told a news conference on Wednesday. “In my view, the president has not faithfully executed the laws. We have a system of government outlined in our Constitution with the Executive Branch, the Legislative branch and the Judicial branch.
