Rep. Patrick T. McHenry, R-N.C., and Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., right, walks to the House chamber for votes as Republicans pushed a divided House Wednesday toward a campaign-season lawsuit against President Barack Obama, accusing him of deliberately exceeding the bounds of his constitutional authority,  at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, July 30, 2014.
