Congressman Tim Scott, South Carolina Republican, spoke to his constituents on Thursday about the debt ceiling debate in Washington. When asked about the constitutionality of the president bypassing the Congress over the debt ceiling issue, Mr. Scott answered:

“This president is looking to usurp congressional oversight to find a way to get it done without us. My position is that is an impeachable act from my perspective. There are a lot of things people say, ‘Are you going to impeach the president over that?’ — No. But this? This is catastrophic. This jeopardizes the credibility of our nation if one man can usurp the entire system set up by our founding fathers over something this significant.”
