President Obama has warmed up to using executive authority, and when he believes he has the authority to make progress without action by Congress, he will do it, White House adviser John Podesta told NPR Tuesday morning. [ ]
Theres a lot that he has the authority to do thats vested in him under the laws of the United States and his constitutional powers, and I think that hes looking forward to a year of action, and I think hes looking forward to tonight (when he gives the State of the Union speech) as a breakthrough year where he can lay out some of these practical, concrete ideas that will get people on board a stable economic footing and see their wages going up for the first time in a long time, said Podesta.

Podesta: Obamas Warmed Up to Executive Action; Will Use It for Climate Change and Energy Transformation Agenda
Not gonna happen, but if Congress were at all responsible they would.
Americans need to be reminded that this will make everything very expensive for them. Especially heating their homes.
We need a 3rd party in this country ASAP. We are living under a one party system where one party does anything it wants completely unopposed. We have the Democrat party and the Democrat lite party which has put us on the high speed lane to tyranny.
Leftist insanity. But they have the kids fooled.
whew.. good thing we didn’t elect Romney.
If he has twenty or thirty spare degrees I could use them right now.
I suspect it will happen fairly soon.
Unfortunately it may take a very long time before it makes a significant change in election outcomes.
I could see 2016 looking like this:
Similar numbers to 1992.
Anything based on “climate change” is executive fiat for raising taxes, of course.
IMO, that means that to help those who have NOT prepared for retirement, they will take $$$ from those who HAVE prepared for retirement and force “sharing.”
To which my leftist friends always reply, “Bush did the same thing with all his ‘signing statements’.
If Rand Paul or Ted Cruz ever becomes prez, I hope the first thing he does is resceind ALL GW’s and BO’s EO’s and SS’s. And vow to not use them any more.
As far as climate change is concerned, this would most likely happen through EPA regulations. But the EPA is ultimately answerable to Congress, right? Or are we in a brave new world in which orders come down from on high, EPA decides to fight global warming by hamstringing power plants, for example?? And then the GOP in Congress will be impotent to do anything about such regulation?
Probably a new tax/fee on 401ks in the private sector to prop up failed pensions on the public sector.
It means you don’t have to worry about Social Security any more because you’ll have to work two part-time jobs for the rest of your life to pay your rent.
Bring back American jobs.
It is so simple. Jobs. Neither party is doing one single thing to help working Americans.
Don’t give out hand-outs.
We need real, jobs. Jobs. Wake up Republicans. Stand up before the democrats do.
