BREAKING – Federal Judge DEFIES Obama, Destroys His Legacy With 1 Surprising Order

President Barack Obama’s legacy is already being disassembled. A federal judge just blocked one of Obama’s economy-killing measures which was strongly supported by Liberals when it was first enacted.

President Barack Obama’s legacy is already being disassembled. A federal judge just blocked one of Obama’s economy-killing measures which was strongly supported by Liberals when it was first enacted.

The United States Labor Department was set to enact the mandatory overtime for salaried federal employees on December 1. The Obama administration rule would have doubled the $47,500 maximum salary a worker can earn and still garner overtime.

Obama’s mandatory overtime rule was expected to impact every sector of the American economy. Non-profit groups, hotels, restaurants, and retailers were expected to be hit the hardest. Businesses have already cut hours and shaved positions due to the rising costs of healthcare.

The overtime rule would have likely caused even more Americans to suddenly find themselves out of work. The parties to the injunction maintained the substantial increase in salaries was nothing more than an arbitrary dictate by the federal government.

Judge Mazzant was appointed by Obama. The judge stated federal overtime laws do not permit the Labor Department to determine which workers are eligible for the extra pay based on only salary levels.

The Fair Labor Standards Act states workers can be exempted from overtime pay if they perform executive, administrative, or professional duties. According to the judge, Obama’s rule “creates essentially a de facto salary-only test.”

Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt applauded the decision and said it “reinforces the importance of the rule of law and constitutional government.” Liberals leaders largely dubbed the ruling a blow to workers and those who want to end income inequality.

The Labor Department disagreed with the ruling. According to department spokesperson Jason Surbey, the agency is currently looking at other options to prove the overtime pay rule was legal. Come January 20, the powers-that-be at the Labor Department will shift.

It is highly doubtful President Trump will be on board with the job-killing measure. Earlier this fall Donald Trump said Obama’s overtime rule was an example of Obama’s desire to place burdensome regulations on Americans businesses.
