    Maybe you libs will believe the Times! This administration has been cutting congress out of the law making process and using federal agencies to implement policies that would never pass in congress including measures that wouldn't pass when democrats had majorities in both houses! These crazy policies are killing job creation in this country. This administration is a rogue and lawless government intent on imposing its agenda on Americans regardless of what congress, the people, or the courts say!

      1933, FDR uses an executive order to seize everyone's gold coins, then stores them in Fort Knox, and then proceeds to make the money non-redeemable in gold.

      And you're complaining about a few jobs?

      Demand an end to government. No business could ever pull off these tyrannical transactions.

    Hi Lady_love. It is my understanding the Legislative branch makes laws and the Executive branch makes policy. This is normal. This is how the Constitution structured our government. It is the role of the President to run the country, not the role of congress.  The President is not required to obtain congressional approval for his administrative decisions.  There is nothing wrong with this arrangement if policies conform to existing law.

      Polocy concerns daily operation of the Country, "NOT" what laws each agency will act upon. Obma is changing this. He refer's to Laws as polocy.

      He is a sharp Constitutional Lawyer he knows how to get around the Legislative Branch, and with him stacking the Court, he could very well pull off what Lady is refering to here. Not good at all

        Most, I believe, will agree the President has the responsibility for the daily operation of the country. That’s a start! I’m not one to think everyone on my side of an issue is right and everyone else is wrong. In a pluralistic democracy, different viewpoints are normal and healthy. To imply liberals always get it wrong or to insinuate conservatives are never on the right side of any issue is to reveal a closed mind and narrow vision. The preservation of our nation depends on our respecting different points of view and accepting we are not always going to have it our way.
        I can honestly say I’ve never heard the President refer to laws as policy. Nor does it take a constitutional lawyer to know he doesn’t need congressional approval of his executive decisions. As for stacking the Supreme Court, every sitting President exercises his privilege of appointing new justices with the advice and consent of the congress. 
        I know you and the OP are concerned about the future of this country, as we all are.  And I value your opinions of this administration. But I go to sleep every night confidant our nation will survive and benefit from this President as it did the 43 before him.

    To be honest I think you just want more money if you are a executive in medical sales like you say. You would profit big getting Obama out and trying to get rid of the Health care that everyone gets regardless of who they are. Which means your company probably took a big loss in total amount of profit you make. If you want to get rid of people get rid of people like Wisconsin governor who was offered a chance to put a high speed rail through Wisconsin which would have meant more jobs for that area, under one condition that he uses the money they give him for the high speed rail only. Nope instead he says once he gets the money he will spend it on something else. Well guess what he did not get the money and instead it went to another state he cost people possible new jobs just because he did not get his way. Now people who act like that are the people who we should be worried about not people who are trying to fix this country. Thank you and have a nice day.

    ANYTHING coming out of  Republicans mouth about JOBS  is a crock of sh*t.

    They got their tax cut....where are the jobs?

    ANYONE worrying about  a president being above the law---TOO LATE!

    You all made a rotten bed, and however Obama lays in it.....I say Hallelooo.

    Obama the job killer is just the latest hate mantra of the Obama-hating right.
    Wait a week. Job killling will be replaced with some other diatribe du jour!
