"I've got a pen and I've got a phone" Why does Obama have to constantly threaten Executive Orders! Whatever happened to compromise?
Obama threatens to bypass embattled Congress with bully pulpit executive actions on economy
- Obama told his first Cabinet meeting of 2014 he won't 'be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we're providing Americans the kind of help they need'
- The president vowed to push though new laws that will help the speed up the pace of economic recovery
- He urged Congress to extend unemployment insurance and pass immigration reform as well as help bring down skyrocketing college tuition
President Barack Obama vowed Tuesday to use the power of executive actions to bypass the unfriendly Republican-controlled House in order to advance his liberal economic agenda.
Obama focused on improving the up-and-down economic recovery as he convened his first Cabinet meeting of 2014 and made clear he'll be doing so with or without the help of the embattled Congress.
'We're not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we're providing Americans the kind of help they need.
Is this the kind of help we need? I don't think so!
What say you?
When is congress going to stop this man from bypassing them? He has widely misunderstood the legal bounds and democratic spirit of this country
This man has said so ofter that he 'won't wait' for congress to act. He has a complete disregard for the democratic process.
The only thing wrong with the American economy is Obama. The first two years of his Presidency he had fillibuster proof majorities in both houses, his last three the Dems rule the Senate. The only thing he accepts responsibility for is killing Bin Laden everything else he blames on Bush and the republicans
