Obama’s End-Run Around the Constitution (Townhall.com) February 20, 2013

Posted by daviddavenport in Radio Commentaries.

Frustrated by a divided Congress, President Obama has begun to go wild issuing executive orders.

Executive orders are supposed to follow laws passed by Congress, executing what Congress enacted. Instead, Obama is using them to start new policy initiatives that he can’t get through Congress.

Recently he signed 23 executive orders on gun control, many of which go beyond any law Congress has passed. Last year he began immigration reform … again, with executive orders. Reports indicate he’s considering a new series on same sex marriage and one on energy.

Initiating policies by executive order, when you can’t provide leadership through Congress, is an end-run around the Constitution.

Someone needs to call the President on this abuse of executive powers.
