Here we go again. First, it was Benghazi where the Republican arguments were dispelled many times, the latest being The New York Times investigation.
Now it is the president’s intention to use executive orders to push through policy that has the right-wingers losing their minds. You have Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Tim Huelskamp of Kansas crying foul. Only Congress can make laws, they bellow. What the president is doing is unconstitutional. Slap him in irons, impeach him, and on and on.
Here are the number of executive orders signed by the last five presidents: Ronald Reagan, 381; George H.W. Bush, 166; Bill Clinton, 364; George W. Bush, 291; Barack Obama, 167. This information is from the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration.
For these right-wing politicians to lie, when they know the facts, shows the contempt they have for their constituents.
