Executive orders need to be put in check. Reasonable limits are needed.

    Obama ordering 10 billion over 10 years in pay raises is absurd. Thankfully congress rejected it.

    This should draw shap criticism from both sides. And this practice needs to be addressed by congress. No president should weild this much unilateral power.

    That ship has sailed without a Constitutional amendment.

    Every POTUS from here on out will continue to expand abuse of the power as well.

    First thing the constitution says after the preamble is "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.".

    All executive orders that amount to passing a law are unconstitutional. EOs are meant only for the president to explain how he will enforce the law. Same thing when the SCOTUS legislates from the bench. The states need to state they will ignore all laws that come from the president or the courts.

    No need to read it. The president is not allowed to create laws all by himself. THINK

    And you are an idiot, too.

    Read my last post, and read the Executive Order in question, dipshit.

    No need to read it. BWA-HA-HA-HA!!!

    Look at you, proudly guzzling the piss that is poured for you. Letting someone else feed you misinformation and you just accept it without checking for yourself.

    Jesus H. Christ.
