Obama January 14, 2014: “One of the things I’ll be emphasizing in this meeting is the fact that we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need. I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education possible making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are creating.”
“And I’ve got a phone that allows me to convene Americans from every walk of life, nonprofits, businesses, the private sector, universities, to try to bring more and more Americans together around what I think is a unifying theme, making sure that this is a country where if you work hard you can make it.”
Obama bragged about the fact that he could write executive orders to finally make everything in America fair, in 2014. I am not going to look up the number of unemployed, on food stamps… 5yrs into his administration.
Obama has governed with executive orders and regulations. Trump will reverse rule by regulation and dismantle Obama’s policy legacy. There are more than 200 executive orders, more than 200 executive memorandums.
Under the Congressional Review Act Congress has 60 days to repeal a legislation with majority vote. Economic stimulus without passing any laws.
