I don't really have a problem with presidents being able to use executive orders and actions when necessary. Obviously when a President is dealing
with a congress that has no plan for the country other than just sabotaging the President's term, then yes I would support them using their powers to

I agree with this action. I'm sick and tired of this crappy congress that can't get anything done. The President won the election and he deserves a
shot at keeping his campaign promises. Congress is stopping him every chance they get and nothing is getting done. The American people want change and
if this is what he has to do, I'm all for it!
Well let's take a closer look.
1. Democrats had full control of Congress from Jan 2007 until Jan 2011.
2. Obama had the Executive Branch for two of those years.
They passed all kinds of economic legislation unabated.
Given that, it seems that the current White House positions are admitting failure of their own legislations.
Now that would indicate an ongoing blame game since 2011.
Not to mention the Constitution gives the House the authority on financial legislation origins.
The President has no authority to legislate on his own.
Unless of course somebody can display an argument with Constitutional merits.
