Executive Orders are unconstitutional. Always have been. Only the legislative branch of government has the authority, under the Constitution, to establish laws.
Weve let this go un-checked since FDRs days. Needs to stopNOW!
Why then have we/cong/sen allowed it in the past. Where does the constitution say that? I want to know so I can allert my representatives or at least one beanhead, Mary Landrieu the rest are on our side.
Article I, Section. 8
To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.
Article II, Section 1 regarding the president—no where does it say this office can create laws. This office is only to “administer the law” or to approve it or veto it. Congress creates the laws, not the president. And in many cases, Executive Orders establishes “laws” and directives of law.
Having any president issue Executive Orders, create laws, violates the intent of the Constitution’s “balance of power” given the executive, legislative and judicial branches separation of powers.
