The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), one of the organizations that filed briefs supporting the recent challenge to the Affordable Care Act, has now brought a constitutional challenge seeking to block two major President Obama initiatives born out of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010.

They also contend that the recess appointment of Richard Cordray as CFPB Director was an unconstitutional evasion of the Senate confirmation prerogative.
