Actually Dtroutma – I think Jack75287 makes a very compelling point. Nobody cares about Jimmy Carter’s Executive Order to lower the thermostat in the White House.
But many of us care when a President starts using executive orders to reshape laws (A privilege left totally in the hands of congress).
We don’t want a President that can change the laws by selectively enforcing them or just changing them on the fly. That is tantamount to Dictatorship. The Democrats in congress have been complicit in this because he’s making changes they love. But they will scream holy hell if a Republican president ever does the same thing and undoes the gains they think they have.
This is not a Red vs. Blue issue. This is about creating a government that treats all citizens fairly and is predictable. The very unpredictability that Obama injects into the regulatory process has caused jobs in this country to dry up.
