Obama's Executive Actions Increasing in Pace

Thursday, April 23, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- As President Obama stood in an Everglades swamp to speak on climate change Wednesday, the White House rolled out a package of eight executive actions, implemented by seven government agencies, to "protect the people and places that climate change puts at risk," the USA Today reported.

"Executive action" — a phrase Obama never uttered publicly in the first two and a half years of his presidency — has now become so routine that new announcements come several times a week.

The actions can take many forms, from formal executive orders and presidential memoranda to more routine reports, meetings and internal bureaucratic changes. That makes any definitive count of lower-level executive actions difficult.

But by one measure, such policy rollouts are actually increasing in pace. The White House often announces executive actions with a fact sheet from the press office, and those spiked last year during what Obama called the "Year of Action." The White House issued 228 fact sheets in 2014, more than the first three years of his presidency combined. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2015/04/22/obama-executive-actions-increasing/25828391/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. Why haven't the Senate and Congress (Republican majorities) simply block any and every executive order by the illegitimate Manchurian Candidate?
    Why, because many of them are in the ESTABLISHMENT.........the same establishment that Obama is a figurehead for.
